Whether you use your dining room strictly for guests or for everyday meals, the dining room seems to be one of those areas that most of us would like to conserve in tip-top shape. However, after so many years of usage, it could be time for an upgrade and what better way to upgrade your space than to make a statement with your décor. If your space has become lackluster or even a bit “underwhelming” it could be time for a revamp! Here is our easy guide on 12 different ways you can make a statement in your dining room.
Treat Your Windows
We always tend to mention every area of a dining room, from the table to the chairs but we never really mention the windows. In spite of this, your windows should be the main focus especially if you have large ones. Add a window treatment and allow them to make a big statement. You could even add bits around your window or even painting them for that daring aesthetics.
Contrast the Obvious
A plain wooden table is often thought of as the easiest form of decorating the dining room; however, in order to bring a statement to the room, you want to use contrasting chairs. Whether you use large, chairs with tufted cushions or even a bench for a beautiful contrast that has a signature daring statement.
Take a Chance
Taking a chance on your décor is always a good idea. Consider it as one of the best things you can do for your space. The idea is to take a chance and bring a bold punch whether it be by having a bold wallpaper, or painting the room a unique color, the punch of texture or statement should feel like it engulfs the room.
Don’t Forget to Look Up
While most of us tend to focus mainly on the overall aesthetics of the room, many tend to forget about the top- the ceiling. Paint your ceiling a unique color or add a bold chandelier for a daring touch that allows you to focus on the length of the home.
Pops of Color
If you don’t want to add a daring twist yet want to make a statement, adding pops of color is the way to go. Choose a daring hue such as yellow, orange, red, blue or even green and add it in a bold manner for that pop of color that makes the room come to life.
Show Off your Heirloom
While most of us want to keep our precious, expensive dishes away, its time to take them out and display them. Integrate them into the dining room and allow them to make a statement on their very own.
Showcase Your Flooring
Go bold with your floors in order to make a bold statement that seamlessly flows in the room. The key is having a rug that is large enough to cover the entire bottom of your dining table. If you really want to go the extra mile, add a textured rug that also has a bold pattern.
Try a Colorful Table
When in doubt, try a colorful table. A colorful table is the perfect excuse to bring color to the room while still being adventurous and fun. Stipulating this is your first-time adding color to the room, you want to go bold and have it as the main focus of the room while keeping the rest of the décor simple.
Mix & Match Chairs
If you want to make a statement in the dining room without changing too much, opt for mixing and matching different styles of seating. The chairs you use could be the statement you need to bring the room back to life. If you really want to take it a step further consider an array of multicolor chairs.
Play with Sizing
Sizing is another great way to make a statement in the dining room. You want to have a contrast on the size furniture that you’re using. For example, if you already have a large table consider adding a small-scale chandelier, the contrast will create an immediate eye-level focal point.
Test some Art
Who doesn’t love a beautiful art piece? For all lovers of art, incorporating a daring art piece is the perfect way of bringing a classic statement. You might want to consider testing different sizes of art, or even different hues of art, in order to find the perfect one for you.
When in doubt, opt for a chandelier. Chandeliers are always a good idea due to how forthright they are. Additionally, they brighten up the room and expand the space all at once, without the need for added light fixtures.
