A new dining room for a new year
A bright and cheerful dining room can set an inviting atmosphere for quality time spent with friends and family. In a lot of homes, it’s the dining room where the family meets at the end of the day. The dining table is where lively discussions take place over a hot meal. Rejuvenating this room occasionally can help bring a new energy to these important gatherings. Take a look at some ideas here: Right at the beginning, decide on the budget so you have clear ideas on what to buy. You don’t really need to change the entire furniture scheme or do major renovations here. Rearranging existing furniture or bringing in one or two key furniture pieces can transform the way your dining room looks.
If the dining table has been in the family for a while, just have it polished for a new look. Old tables come attached with family history or the memory of family members sitting around a meal and are thus difficult to part with.
Dining chairs see a lot of wear and tear. It’s a good idea to just change them if it fits into your budget. Dining chairs with casters like Hillsdale Furniture Grand Bay caster dining chairs can add a traditional look to your dining room. The oak chairs have a warm antique brown fabric on them. You can go for an entire caster dining chair set with the Grand Bay 5-piece round dining set or choose individual items. The chairs are comfortable and classy and will add a stylish air to your dining room.
If you have big windows, change the curtains for a fresh new look. Introduce a new color scheme so the whole vibe feels different. Bring in some plants and greenery. If there are old cabinets or side tables, get them polished so they look new and blend in with your new decor.
Abstract art work on the walls and family photographs framed innovatively will add a new dimension to the room. Honeycomb Abstract Art-Ballard Designs by Meagan Meagher creates lovely color contrasts with her warm use of gray and gold. Her painting has a graphic, layered look that goes well with a distressed gray wood frame.
As you can see, it doesn’t take more than a few simple changes to come up with a brand new look!
