The dining room is not only one of the areas that is used regularly but it’s also primitive to your decorating style. Just like the living room, the dining room is a focal point in any home. Keeping that in mind, we wanted to bring something unique and different to the forefront. That is where masculine decorating comes into play. Masculine décor truly doesn’t get the notoriety it deserves, and we are here to change that. These fascinating masculine dining room will not only inspire you, but they will make you want to redecorate immediately.
Industrial Light Fixture
One of the very first items many take a look at when entering a room is the light fixtures used. Light fixtures not only bring beauty to a room, but they can become the main statement piece. That is where industrial decorating will come into play. Add a pair of industrial light fixtures to make the room feel grand. The key is having identical fixtures that have a modern, industrial flair to them.
When in doubt of what to change in your dining room, consider changing up your chairs. You can keep the table you already have but bring in a display of modern seating to truly showcase the room. Your chairs should be subtle yet bold all at once. Use the same seats for a cohesive aesthetic that makes the room feel put together.
Just like lighter pastel shades add a feminine twist, darker hues bring a crisp masculine approach. The idea is to have a display of dark hues while still weaving in the darker bits to brighten up the room. You want your dining room to feel edgy, without taking away from the natural display of the space.
Bring a Rug
If the room already has a masculine flair, you want to further showcase it by adding a rug. Rugs are great due to how effortlessly the add something rich to the room. This air of luxury is felt when you have a rug displayed in a dining room. Whether you use a faux fur, silk or patterned rug you want to have a display that feels enchanting to the room in an edgier way.
One detail about masculine décor is how focused on simplicity it is. There’s always a simple touch to the room’s overall aesthetic. To keep this appeal, add to the room only items that you will truly need. The idea is to keep your dining table and chairs as the main focus. There should be a sense of minimal, but with an impactful elegance. Add a light fixture right above your dining table to complete the look.
While decorating the room, do not forget about having an accent wall. Accent walls are always a great option to have. They bring texture and personality to a room right when and where you need it. Instead of going for a colorful wall, consider having an accent wall with a unique pattern. The trick is staying away from heavy patterns and using a display that makes sense in the room yet doesn’t overtake the space.
If you’re truly interested in bringing an edgy vibe to your dining room, consider having a black table set. Having a black table is not only edgy, but it’s different and will certainly bring a focal point right where you need it most. Consider having matching seats to complete the look while still bringing a sweet unique touch.
While square and rectangle table have always been a top favorite, round ones are coming back. If you have a large family having a round table might not seem like the perfect choice but they work quite well. Round tables work due to how little room they take up yet offer the same if not better seating. There’s something very intimate about round tables that we like. Though they might not feel as masculine as a rectangle light they area oh so charming. Pair with sleek chairs to emphasize the sleekness the room is supposed to have.
Another aspect we love about masculine décor is how elegant it can look. There’s this air of masculinity that is felt throughout while still being cohesive as daring. The key is bringing a minimalist approach that is still engaging in the room. Add elegance by bringing a table and chair set that does not overbear the room.
Focus on the View
If your dining room sits next to a window or a porch area, you want to direct your focus towards it. The idea is having your view become the staple of the room. In essence, the view should feel grand and focal without taking away from your décor. Allow your décor to make the room come to life while having as much focal appeal as possible. Add curtains to further showcase the window area of the room.
