Real Redecorating: What Your Dining Room is Missing

Real Redecorating: What Your Dining Room is Missing
  • Opening Intro -

    Some dining rooms are small, while others seem to have too much space.

    There might be something your dining room is missing, making it easy to start a remodeling project in this part of the house.


Create a space where dining together can be a fun and engaging part of daily life with these decorating tips.

Southwestern Flair

Even if you don’t live in the southwest, you can get a glimpse of the colors and the décor in a simple dining room remodel. Add a black or wood chandelier with delicate lighting for a romantic atmosphere. The table should be a color that is light brown with chairs that have a high back. Place a rug under the table that has vibrant colors of red, orange or blue. Use decorations like fake grasses, pots, and authentic weavings for a distinctive Southwestern look.

Escape To the Coast

If you enjoy going to the beach and have large windows, then consider making your dining room look like a beach getaway. Add seashells on a stand in a corner, and paint the room in a delicate blue with green accents on the bottom of the wall to look like waves crashing. A white table with white chairs that have blue cushions or cushions that are bright in color give the room a bit of sunshine and great dimension. A corner hutch with bright dishes would be a good addition to make as well. 

Country Chic

It’s easy to create a country theme in a dining room. A table with a rustic look that has benches or mismatched furniture adds a country feeling. Add a bowl of apples or other fruit to the middle of the table and hang plants in the corners of the room. A display of cast irons is an idea as well. Consider painting the walls in a dark brown color, or replacing them with boards that are stained. It’s a classic look that won’t go out of style quickly.


If you want something that is a little more modern, then try adding lights that hang down and add in gray or silver accents. Have a glass table adorn the center of the room with modern sleek chairs. A large rug under the table to help focus the eye completes the look.

There are numerous ways you can update a dining room. Find a look that uses the most of the space you have. You can change the entire design with new Gilkey windows or add a new coat of paint for a more vibrant look.
