Let’s look at 5 creative ways to makeover your dining room.
Your dining room is an important place in your home. First, you gather here with family and friends to celebrate special occasions. Plus, you spend time with loved ones catching up on family gossip. Finally, you serve your guests home-cooked food to show your love in this room.
However, it’s easy sometimes for us to overlook this room. Therefore, it can become outdated and stuffy. Here are the ways to spruce it up…without investing in an all new dining room suite!
LIGHT UP THE DINING ROOM
First, you can give your dining room an instant update. Just change out the old, boring lighting. Because you infrequently spend money on updating lights, budget to buy something that you will love long-term.
If you don’t have crown molding in the dining room, add it! It’s an interesting detail that adds charm and character. One warning, unless you have above-average carpentry skills, leave it to the pros.
ADD METALLIC SHINE WITH WALLPAPER
Because you don’t use the dining room every day, you can pull off metallic wallpaper. I’m not talking about your Auntie Edna’s old and dingy wallpaper here. In fact, today’s manufacturers offer a wide array of contemporary papers.
Another way you can add interest to the architecture is to add wainscoting to the walls. Like the crown molding, leave it to professionals!
I bet you still have your old candleholders, linens, and dishes that you’ve used for years! Am I right? You can keep those, but purchase a few new pieces to work into the mix. It will make it less matchy-matchy and more interesting.
With these ideas in mind, there’s no excuse to treat yourself to a dining room makeover!
