Thinking about doing some home decorating? Then why not turn your attention to the dining room! Below are some cool tips to help you remodel your dining room and turn it into perfection:
Table & Chairs
This is the big thing to consider when decorating your dining room. A dining room’s reputation is won or lost based on the table inside. Picking your dining room table is serious business. Do you go for an ultra-modern metal and glass based table? Or would you prefer something more rustic and authentic like an oak table.
The style depends on the person, there’s no right or wrong answer here. What I will say is make sure you get the size right. You’re looking for a Goldilocks table here. Not too big, not too small, it has to be just right. Some tables have a little special feature that lets you extend the table if needed. This is handy when you have guests over and need to fit more people around the table.
Obviously, don’t forget to buy chairs to sit on. Sometimes, dining room tables come with a set of chairs too. If not, make sure you get chairs that suit the table design. You don’t want a mismatched table and chairs.
The windows in a dining room are generally going to be quite big. Houses are designed this way, so there’s plenty of sunlight shining in. This is because dining rooms are typically used for the family to eat their meals. So, you need to be able to see what you’re eating! If your room doesn’t have big windows, I’d suggest you get them fitted.
Something like a big patio window to look out into the back garden is a fantastic idea. You want as much natural light coming in as possible; it really lightens the tone of the room. It’s a lot nicer eating meals with natural sunlight, rather than a light from the ceiling.
The big question that often comes up when decorating a room is curtains or blinds? Well, this will depend on the windows in your dining room. If, like I suggested, you’ve gone for a big patio window looking outside, curtains are the better option. Curtains always tend to look better on big, long, windows.
Plus you can get some lovely homemade curtains these days, like the ones seen on www.iansnow.com. Homemade curtains can bump up the class levels in your dining room and make it seem more homely. After all, this is the room you’re going to be eating in as a family, you want to feel at home. So, in my opinion, curtains are the better choice from a design perspective here.
Your dining room floor depends on what style of room you’re going for. A modern dining room would look good with some sleek laminate flooring. A more traditional one would look good with a hardwood floor to compliment the table. Choose a flooring based on the style you wish to achieve.
