If you are hosting a dinner party, or just eating a meal as a family, the dining area in your home brings people together. So many important celebrations and holidays are focused around that area. As a result, you will want it to be a beautiful and stylish place where you can celebrate and make memories. Here are a few ideas to inspire you and bring your dining area back to life.
On the dining table, it adds such appeal as people walk in the room if there is a centrepiece. You might like to change it up and do seasonal ones. So at the moment, something Easter or spring themed would work well. If you would prefer not to change the centrepiece for the time of year, then choosing something like a candelabra would work well. It would make such a striking feature and a different dimension to the room. Pillar candles would also look great. If you got two or three and they were all different sizes, it would look so good.
If you want to make a change to your dining area, one good place to look is the chairs. If you currently have them all the same, you could consider going for a more eclectic look. Chairs that are all different can look great and adds a cosy and welcoming look to the area; it makes it much more inviting.
If you are short on space in your home, think about how the room could double up as another living area. Is there room to put some cosy chairs or a sofa in part of the dining room? Then you can use the room for different purposes, other than just dining.
Lighting is such an important feature in a dining room. You want to have good lighting to be able to appreciate your food. But you want to create an atmosphere with your lighting too. If you don’t have a hanging light fixture over your table at the moment, that is a good place to start. It brings the attention to the table and the centre of the room. Feiss Chandeliers are a lovely addition to any dining room to add some sparkle. Having some smaller wall lights is a good idea so that you can have a lot of light or reduce the light. Getting a dimmer switch is a great idea for mood lighting in the dining room.
If you dining area needs to have an update, then think about your use of colour. You could paint a feature wall to add a bit of brightness and colour to the room. If you don’t want to paint, then think about a rug or piece or artwork that will add a pop of colour to the room. Try not to use too much colour on the curtains, though, as it can make the space look smaller. What colours should you choose? Blue is a colour that invites relaxation and purple is a great colour too. It adds a touch of luxury in the room.
