Nearly 60 percent of homes have a medium-sized dining room. Even though you don’t have the challenges of a smaller or larger space, it still makes sense to consider the impact of your choices. Even a big room can feel cramped if it’s cluttered without enough open space. The ideal design will be balanced with an inviting feel.
Each aspect will have an effect on the degree of space. Your style will also have an influence. The spaciousness of a modern dining room will feel different than the casual mood with a room in cottage style. Think of space as another design element to consider as you decorate it. And don’t forget how color can shake things up.
Ready for some inspiration to get started? Head on over to our gallery of dining rooms for some unique medium-sized dining room design ideas.
Complement Your Style with Color
Brown, by far, is the most popular choice for dining rooms in over 40 percent of homes. It creates a connection with nature that many people find pleasing. It works well with a number of styles including rustic, traditional, and Scandinavian. Warm colored woods like cedar make a room inviting, a good option for a dining room.
White will make a room seem larger. You can create the same impression with a well-placed mirror. Space will feel more intimate with warm colors like yellow or orange.
Create a Mood
With a medium-sized room, you can focus more freely on mood with your space. You might want to consider adding some red elements as accent pieces. Red can stimulate conversation for more pleasant get-togethers. White, on the other hand, can give a room a feeling of peace and elegance.
Plan for Space
It’s essential to make sure your dining room has plenty of space no matter what style it is. Take into account space for getting around your table. You should plan on about three feet all around. Resist the urge to fill up the room just because you have the luxury of extra space.
Have a Focal Point
A focal point will draw people into a room because of the interest it adds. It’s an excellent addition if your medium-sized room feels larger than it is. Guests will focus on the eye-catching piece rather than the entire area. It’s also an opportunity to create a conversation piece. An attractive drum pendant light can fit the bill nicely.
