What Are The Current Trends In New Dining Rooms?
If you’re low on time or cash, sometimes making small adjustments with new trends is an effective way to execute a dining room makeover. The last few years have brought big changes to our lifestyle, and with so many of us now spending increased time at home, simple alterations can reflect its growing utility outside of meals in general.
For many people, increased usage of the dining room calls for a less formal feeling. Replacing your big rectangle table with a round one creates a more informal and intimate atmosphere. Begone, sharp angles! Hello, soft curves.
Chairs, tables, and lighting fixtures that have multiple uses not only help alleviate excessive spending but lends great help to the new dynamic dining room. Whether you’re entertaining, hopping on a work meeting, or studying in quiet, more functionality means more utility.
We can all agree that the last couple of years have seen us remaining inside more than we would like to admit. Invite a fresh energy and drive away the stir-craze of long hours indoors with houseplants. Add a personal touch to your decorations by choosing from succulents, cacti, or plants with multicolored leaves such as begonias or sansevierias.
Should Your Dining Room Makeover Have A Theme?
Some of us are looking to completely revamp our dining room space. Out with the old, and in with the new – here are some themes you can apply to your dining room if you want to give it an all-in-one makeover.
Formal Dining Rooms
We can all agree there is a certain allure to a formal dining room. Bring in a classic feel of a sit-down dinner with touches of elegance – contrasts of light trims and cushioned chairs, to dark wood tables and floors with spots of finery around the room will bring a dramatic feel to the space.
Casual Dining Rooms
A dining room doesn’t demand formality, and many young families are intrigued by a space that can serve for dinner and entertainment alike. Wood beams and trims, farmhouse-style tables, natural lighting, and open floor plans will give you a casual feeling that will surely fetch compliments from guests.
Modern Dining Rooms
Simple and sleek is the go-to for modern architecture. Dark-metal lighting fixtures, minimalist chairs of darker hues, and an elegant glass table will have you fitting into the new era of stylistic home living.
