When it comes to home décor there are tons of options for a feminine touch in the home. However, adding a masculine feel could be a trickier task as there aren’t many ideas out there. We have put together a few of our favorite dining room upgrades that have a masculine aesthetic to them.
Dark Gray Palette
Using a dark gray palette in your dining room space is an easy way to add a masculine yet elegant appeal. Pair with a dark, edgy light fixture to bring that class masculinity to the dining room without overpowering the dark hues you are already working with.
Mysterious & Edgy
If you are all about mystery a dark and dramatic space is the perfect way to add a masculine feel. You want to add a dark palette and pair it with dark furniture for that mysterious almost “dark” aesthetics. The key is working with a bold and daring dining table that seamlessly works in the context of creating this mysterious and edgy decorating style.
Bring on the Bright Hues
Just because a room will have a masculine beauty it doesn’t mean it has to be completely dark. Instead, you can add bright hues that add a full circle feel while still having a classic appeal in the room. The classic feel paired with bright hues adds a contemporary edge that simply works well together.
The idea of adding a masculine charm to the dining room may seem like a daunting one but it is actually quite simple. Keep your décor to a minimum is one of the best ways to do so. We recommend adding leather seats to your dining table for that hint of masculinity that is still charming and fresh.
Bring it to the Future
Futuristic décor is becoming the new “IT” décor style, so much so that having a futuristic dining table is the way to go. Not only does it bring a masculine touch, but it evolves the room in a simple yet futuristic manner. Pair your unique table with mix-matched seating for that futuristic appeal.
Open Floor Plan
Having an open floor plan is not only airy, beautiful, and casual but it is also easy to decorate due to there being so many different décor items already being used in the space. The key when working with an open floor plan and adding that masculine appeal is using a wood table and pairing it with darker chairs.
Change Your Flooring
The flooring you use in your dining room could bring a masculine feel without the need of changing up your current décor. Opt for a “gray undertone” wood, this kind of wood appears less dark and frigid, yet it is still elegant. Which is perfect when you want to have a masculine appeal that stands out on its very own.
Keep it Minimal
Men aren’t like women, in fact, they are completely different. While women love the idea of “more is always better,” men typically have a more laidback style. Therefore, to create that classic masculine beauty, consider taking a minimalist approach. Add hints of dark beauty and even use minimal dark pendant lighting.
Navy is such a powerful color that it comes to life when you pair it with more subtle hues. Additionally, it takes an edgy touch which is perfect when you want a masculine hint that isn’t overpowering. We love this color on the walls, as a big statement piece.
Dark Pendant Lighting
Nothing brings a masculine feel quite like a dark pendant lighting, especially when you decide to use a cluster of them. Use multiple pendants and place them at different levels in your dining area of a contemporary twist with dark hues.
Do not forget the Metallics
Metallics are excellent accent bits. They are fun and easy to incorporate while being daring and fun. Keep the décor dark yet have that seamless metallic appeal. Consider a metallic light fixture or even having metallic décor on top of your table.
