If you’re fortunate enough to have a dining room in your home, you know how has the ability to bring people together. That’s why it’s so important to plan out your dining room decor to match your home and your style. Not sure where to start? Here are ten creative and ingenious ideas to update your dining room and make a statement!
“Nothing is better than going home to family and eating good food and relaxing.” - Irina Shayk
Curtains are already known for being able to change a room, whether they’re neutral, colorful, or - as is the case here - patterned! Since we’re looking for decorating ideas that make a statement, the patterned floral is probably your best pick.
Though you could also go with geometric shapes, florals have the advantage of being a Jack-of-all-trades: they can make a room vibrate with joy, bring in a whole new elegant vibe, or make the place super delicate!
Pink is usually seen as a feminine color, but it doesn’t need to be! This color can make a room oscillate with style while also keeping it simple - it’ll all depend on what you want to do and the hue of pink you decide to use. For the dining room I’d recommend:
- Pastel tone chairs (like in the photo above)
- Bright pink curtains (because, yeah, I can’t get enough of curtains)
- Patterned pink rug
Using unique chairs (whether store-bought or DIYed) is a great way to revamp your dining room (I mean, just look at that photo!). You can match the chairs with some wall art, a unique centerpiece, or even an eye-catching lighting fixture.
Talking about eye-catching lighting fixtures…
You’ll notice that they’re pretty common throughout the photos here, but don’t have a separate section just for them in this list. Despite that, I wanted to reinforce that they do deserve attention! They always complement your decor (and even become show-stealers at times).
Benches add that farmhouse style that has become really popular the last couple of years (you know, the one that screams both farmhouse and modern at the same time).
The good thing about them:
You can either use them as they are, much like the photo here, or make several personalized cushions to put on them - and change them every so often to prevent you from getting sick of always looking at the same thing.
Similar to stair runners, these items are one of my favorites when it comes to decorating and keeping it simple! You can use a bright color (like that orange one) to make a statement without needing to overthink things.
Here’s a catch:
Both the living and dining room can use warm colors like orange and brown because they’re conversation stimulators. So if you’re into hosting lots of dinner parties, double check for that table runner!
I mentioned earlier the option of getting different cushions for the bench so you never get sick of looking at the same thing, and well, the tablecloth follows the same train of thought. It’s a piece that’s easy to change whenever you feel like it, and there are a bunch of gorgeous options that will fulfil the eye-catching desire.
Have you ever noticed how hard it is to go through a list of making decor statement and not find a huge artwork as an option? Surely we can understand why, they’re remarkably gorgeous! Of course, options never run out, you can have:
- Abstract art
- Family paintings
Wallpaper for the dining room is also a wonderful choice! I even found two different images so you can see the range of styles that’s possible to create with bold wallpapers. The first one above is a colorful, geometric shapes example that’s really cool to create a light, cheerful ambiance.
Now, take a look at the second one:
As you can notice, it brings a more fancy and neutral style. A wallpaper like this can give you the opportunity to innovate in bringing some color with furniture - though in this dining room they preferred the flowers as a pop of color, you could easily find, let’s say, a yellow table to innovate!
One thing that we rarely try is mismatched seatings, most times we want all chairs to look exactly the same - at most, both end chairs end up being the different ones. The advice I can give you here is: don’t be afraid to try! The photo shows chairs in the same style, but with different patterns.
You could also go with different shapes with same colors, or different shapes and different colors. There are a few options you could try here, so don’t be afraid to be creative!
Alongside curtains, rugs are also a Jack-of-all-trades when it comes to decoration. They come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, so you’ll definitely find a great option to fit your own dining room! And hey, remember when I mentioned the lighting fixtures? Check out the gorgeous one this dining room has!
This particular dining room mixes and matches some of the options that were mentioned, such as:
- Unique chairs
- Pink accent
- Huge artwork
And it looks really modern and beautiful, don’t you think?
