7 Ways to Redecorate Your Dining Room

If your dining room is looking dated, consider these easy tips to give it a fresh look. These budget-friendly changes will have your dining room looking brand new in no time!

1. A dining room is the place to enjoy a relaxing meal free of distraction. Clearing out clutter in the room can help you feel more relaxed in this space. A table, chairs, and a buffet are the only pieces that you need in the room. Keep horizontal surfaces mostly clear, with the exception of a few decorative items.

2. Color sets the tone for the whole room. If you’re looking for a change, a new coat of paint could be just the thing your dining room needs. To make a large, open dining room feel cozier, use a deep shade of a warm color. For example, gold, red and subtle shades of orange are warm and welcoming. On the flip side, if you are working with a smaller space, light colors will make the room seem larger than it is. Try a chic shade of light gray, cool blue or crisp white.

3. This is a great tip for those working within a small budget. Instead of buying a new dining room set, refresh the dining room by reupholstering your chairs. Find a chic new fabric to match your style to replace your dated upholstery. You can cut down on costs by reupholstering the chairs yourself. Simply pop out the cushions, remove the old fabric. Recover the padding with cotton batting and your new fabric. Secure your fabric using a heavy duty staple gun.

4. Lighting is an important element in any room, and the dining room is no exception. If your lighting needs an update, consider the following. For a quick, inexpensive facelift, spray paint your chandelier to change the finish. You can also remove or change the shades for a different look. Candles in the dining room are traditional and set an intimate tone for any dinner. Instead of conventional candlesticks, opt for something more modern. Arrange pillar candles on a long tray with glass stones for a different look.

5. Another way to open up a small dining room or enhance a dull dining room is to add mirrors! Dining rooms are great places to incorporate mirrors, especially if you use the room for entertaining. Mirrors pick up and the sparkle of crystal and emphasize the glow of candlelight creating an extra special dining experience for your guests.

  6. Create depth in your dining room by adding different textures. A good place to start is with your window treatments. Pick a lux, weighty fabric for instant drama, or opt for beautiful sheer fabric that lets the sun shine in. Consider selecting a coordinating fabric to use as a table runner for more texture to the table. A runner is great, especially if you have a beautiful table that you don’t want to cover up with a table cloth. Another way to add different texture and freshen up the room is with a vase of fresh cut flowers. They’re beautiful and inexpensive!

7. Lastly, add a personal touch to your dining room. Frame a favorite piece of art or a family portrait and hang it on the wall. You don’t need to save your best dining accessories for the holidays. Display your heirloom candlesticks or serving trays proudly, year round!
