Refresh Your Dining Room with These Simple Tricks

Refresh Your Dining Room with These Simple Tricks
  • Opening Intro -

    We tend to think about a large remodeling project when it comes to altering the ambience of a room or the entire house.

    There are plenty of home improvement ideas that can help change the way your property looks and feels, but not all of them have to be complicated or expensive.


In fact, the simplest changes can be very rewarding when done correctly.

The Alfresco Blinds we talked about not too long ago are a good example. This is an easy window treatment to add, yet it brings a completely new vibe. In this article, we’re going to shift our attention to the dining room and the simple tricks you can use to refresh it.

Change the Lighting

One of the easiest ways to alter the look and feel of the dining room is by changing its lighting. Going from daylight bulbs to warmer ones is the first step you should try. Warmer interior lighting works really well in the dining room, since it adds that extra warmth to the room. A warm dining room is a great place to spend time in, so this simple change will make a big impact.

You can also add colors to the room for a completely different look. You can invest in RGB bulbs such as Phillips Hue and have complete control over how the room looks or feels at different times. Another interesting trick to try is adding practical light – an exposed light source instead of a concealed one – with low intensity light bulbs. There are LED bulbs designed to mimic vintage filament-style bulbs; these are definitely worth a try.

Redecorate the Dining Table

Changing the mood in the dining room doesn’t always mean changing the entire room. Sometimes, all you need is a quick redecoration of the dining table. This is something you can do in a few hours as long as you have all the right ingredients.

Start by picking out a new centerpiece for the dining table. You can opt for artificial flowers if you want one that lasts a long time with minimum maintenance. Alternatively, you can choose a good vase and have different fresh flowers added to the room every few days.

Don’t forget to add placemats with different patterns and colors to achieve different effects. Round placemats with lighter colors work really well for creating warmer ambience. Online catalogues such as Hadley Table will give you more ideas on which additional accessories to get too.

Add Art

The dining room doesn’t have as much art as other rooms in the house most of the time. Now is the perfect time to start introducing art to the room to alter the way it looks. A family portrait or a modern painting is often enough to change the mood, while a more elaborate piece might be needed if you want to change the ambience of the room further.

All of these tips are very simple to apply and take no more than a few hours to execute. Get started today and work on improving your dining room in no time.
