The solution to every party host’s biggest fear lies in one of the most fun and challenging spaces to decorate: the dining room.
When you have a larger space, it can be tempting to commit one of the biggest decorating faux pas- wasting perfectly good space. If read on below, You’ll find more than few ways to help your dining room shine without committing the ultimate sin of wasting space.
Entertain, Eat, Play
A spacious dining room will afford you the opportunity to entertain six or more guests without dampening the vibe of your gathering because there’s limited space. In order to complete the perfect picture, you’ll have to go down your checklist for stylish furniture, lighting, and color schemes.
Consider stopping by your local furniture store and perusing their dining section for rectangular dining tables. There are so many different styles of dining tables that can complement your dining room but a long, rectangular dining table in a spacious dining room meets the requirements for function and style.
The room can be centered on your dining table, and the other accents in your dining room can follow suit.
Depending on the color of the other accents like your walls and dining room table, you can play around with just about any color in your spacious dining area.
Bright colors on your walls can open up space even more which can lead to the illusion of opulence and space that your dining room could have. Sleek, darker colors can bring a modern or contemporary look to your dining room. You can follow through by coordinating the colors you’ve used in your dining room with your centerpieces, paintings, sculptures, or rugs.
Lighting can be the difference between making your dining room’s sleek and formal or leaving it cozy and comfortable for when guests pull up a chair for a bite to eat at the family dinner.
Consider pulling back the curtains and allowing a little natural light to make its way into your dining room. There’s nothing more inviting than a little sunlight and the sun’s rays will make the room more comfortable to be in.
However, if your dining room is an area that natural light cannot easily access then you can consider hanging a stylish and defining light fixture that elevates the look of a room. Almost any style of chandelier can accomplish this.
If you can’t fathom the idea of investing in a chandelier to light your entire dining room, strategically placing a few lamps that act as decoration accents can get the job done as well.
