The dining room is a vital room in most of the homes and many people pay a lot of attention to choosing its furniture. Dining room units are often sold as complete sets which consist of a matching table, identical chairs, and matching china cabinet.
But someone may wonder is it a must to buy a complete set? The answer is no, of course buying a full dining set is not a necessity, you can create your own set from different pieces of furniture, and in the following part, we will give you some tips and examples on how to do this.
A cohesive dining room design can be achieved by using a selection of various pieces of furniture if one uses a creative décor technique. For example, if your chairs are different in styles, you can use a single color pallet or the same upholstery fabric on all of them making one common factor between all of them. While, if your chairs have different shapes, you can unify their look by staining all of them with the same color, and attaching identical seat cushions to them, or stenciling the same motif on the back of each.
In case you have a table that is made of an old wooden barn door, collect chairs that are similar to milking stools to keep the consistency of the country décor theme without the need to buy a matching set. One can have chairs and table that are all made of bamboo and rattan, and they were purchased from different manufacturers as well as their shapes are different, but the luster and hue will make them look cohesive.
On the other hand, if your dining room furniture is mismatched, you can paint all the legs with the same color, and then cover the chairs with slipcovers so that the chair is totally hidden, drape the table with a long draping table cloth, and cover the surface of the china cabinet with a runner. The identical fabric that is used on all of them will make the dining room décor seem as a matched set.
If the material is patterned, hang a single item of art that holds the same theme on the wall. But if the material is of a solid color, use that solid color in a picture or in a picture frame. By doing such a creative decoration tips, you can have a well-matched dining set at an affordable cost without having to buy a full set.
