Simplicity is always the key when it comes to updating a design, you really don’t have to spend a lot of money or time thinking of what to do or ask for help from an expert to update your dining room. Simply, all what you need to do is to read this article to know more about the simple and easy ideas that you can use to update your dining room.
The first idea is about the dining table and of course I won’t tell you to change the table entirely, you will only change the cover or the table’s linen. You can either replace it with a new one like a runner or entirely remove it and replace it with a luxurious center piece like a crystal vase or a silver fruit tray. This is a very simple idea, but trust me it will make huge difference in your dining room.
If you have a classic or even modern rectangular dining table, replace the armless chairs at the head of the table with couple of arm chairs. The arm chairs look so classy and they will provide you with endless comfort while you are eating your meals. If you don’t like this idea, you can change the chairs’ plain fabric with new striped or printed fabric. If you want to achieve an atmosphere of harmony, try to apply the same idea to the curtains as well. Just make sure to choose the fabrics in a color that matches with the color of the walls.
Buying a new carpet or rug for your dining table will define its beauty even more, but make sure to make some changes in your choice. For example, if your old carpet was a plain or dark colored, look for carpet that has cheerful colors that makes your dining room full of life and freshness.
This idea may sound a little weird, but have you ever thought about applying wallpaper to the ceiling? Yes, applying wallpaper may be the unique idea that you are searching for and for sure you will find lots of wallpaper prints and shapes that fit your dining room’s design. For example you can go for something that represents nature like wallpaper with cloudy sky drawing, floral drawing or any other drawing you like. You can try applying bold colors instead of wallpaper as well, for example, if your dining room is painted in white, try to paint the ceiling with dark blue.
Replacing your old chandelier with a ceiling pendant would add a new look to your dining room. The ceiling pendant come with different shapes and colors, some shapes even take up to one lamp and the choice is up to what you prefer, a pendant with soft or a pendant with strong lighting.
Changing the other lighting fixtures of your dining room will be such a good step to do to achieve the update mission. Add some new sconces to the walls and if you don’t have electric wires to connect them, search for those sconces that work with battery. All what you will do is to hang them on the wall, simply press the on button and enjoy an amazing lighting without making any holes in your walls.
Hanging a mirror with silver or golden frame in front of a precious antique like an English silver candle holder or a French golden table clock will enhance the beauty of these pieces, and if your dining room is small, you will get a double benefit, because mirrors always make the small places look bigger. Hanging a special painting on some wall in front of your dining room, will add such a decorative sense to the wall makes you feel more comfortable and relaxed while you are eating.
If you have a buffet or any side table in your dining room, select some special photos of you with your family and friends and put them in some wooden or metal photo frames then place them on your buffet or the side table. Watching the best moments of your life while you are sitting with your family on dinner is such an indescribable feeling. If you like the idea, but your dining room is small and you don’t have a buffet or a place for a side table, you can hang couple of wall shelves to put these frames on. Putting a silver tea set with a silver tray on your beside table or buffet sounds like a good and matching idea as well and for sure you can also replace them with couple of simple table lamps.
The ideas are countless and for sure you can always apply any idea you like, just try your best to choose the ideas that match with your dining room colors and design to achieve the sense of harmony and the unified ambience in your dining room.
