Dining rooms are the perfect place not only to enjoy delicious food but company and conversation with our loved ones, friends, and colleagues as well. Here are some tips on how to redesign your space to make it inviting and cozy. Read on for ten bright ideas on how to makeover your dining area.

Natural Light

Using bright patterned window curtains in the dining area can make the room brighter. Using natural light not only creates an illusion of making the place larger, but also saves energy. You can also use large mirrors to bring light in during the day. Mirrors also give the illusion of a larger space which is ideal in the dining room which are sometimes filled with large furniture pieces.

The Right Table

The one of the main focal points of a dining room is the dining table. Interior Clue carries many dining table options ranging from traditional wood pedestal tables to modern glass and metal alternatives. Make sure to choose one that complements your chosen theme. Mahogany materials on dining table and chairs give us durability as well as class.

Nature Inside

Add the color green to freshen up your design. Plants go in any room whether it's light and airy, wood grained and traditional, or minimalist. They will inspire a calming effect by making the room perfect for long conversations and laughter.

Ceiling Lights

Choosing the right ceiling light is important as you want one that will grab attention. A unique light fixture can also be one of your focal points in the room. A good example is the Nine Pendants Frosted Glass Orb Ceiling Lamp for modern interiors. Because of its round shape, this creates a pattern of elegance and sophistication in the room.

Wall Decor

Dining rooms act as a display room as well. Adding family pictures on the wall brings out the family oriented character of the place. You can add a wall unit with square designs to place your travel souvenirs. These make conversation pieces.

Every room has its own personality based on the taste of the individual who has chosen the furniture and accessories. This guide goes for everyone with their own unique style; the beach lover, abstract enthusiast, the present-day, and even the sophisticated modern.


Dining Like Royalty

Adding a tall, traditional, silver or gold candelabra on your dining table matching with a unique mantle piece will tie the room together. Depending on the size of your table you can use one large candelabra or two smaller candlesticks for the same effect. Who doesn’t want to eat like a king or queen?

Keep it Round

Not all of us have the luxury of space in our dining area. When working with a small place, we can visually extend the place by using round tables. Take for example the Metropolis Round Dining Table with Shelf, this table adds class to the room, and the center shelf is useful for more storage in a small room.

Taller Rooms

Stress the height of the dining area by adding vertical lines. Using long curtains on the windows will make the room look taller. If the room has no long windows or lines, one can use a long piece of wall décor. Wall décor with floral art can make the room look taller and add character to your room. Art décor is easily movable, so it comes in handy.
