A beautiful dining room is a great addition to your home if you’re someone who loves to entertain and host dinner parties. If you’re a new homeowner, having a beautiful dining room is a great start to show off your home.

Here are some of my top tips to transform your dining room:

Choose the right dining table

Don’t just opt for a boring table. Picking a table that is beautiful before you do any other decor is a great start to making your dining room look good. Look for the best gloss dining tables and chairs for a dramatic statement, or choose a large farmhouse style table for a cosy feeling. 

Use reclaimed wood to warm up a cold room

Dining rooms can feel cold if there isn’t much in the room, but on-trend wood accents are a great decor touch to add warmth. A table or a sideboard made with reclaimed wood looks great in the room. If your dining room is part of a more open-plan space, the wood can also help to center the space and make it feel separate. 

Use a metallic wallpaper

The dining room is a space where you can go a little glam with your decor without things feeling too over the top. A metallic wallpaper one on the wall makes a great feature and adds a glamorous touch to your space. It can also help to reflect light back into the room, keeping things bright and light. Keep the color palette simple to stop the wallpaper from dominating the room. 

Add an accent color

If your dining room has interesting architectural features like beams or built-in cabinets, show them off by painting them so they stand out from the rest of the room. If you don’t have these kinds of features, you can add an accent color by painting a sideboard or a china cabinet. Use the accent color in table linen and other details for a cohesive look. 

Experiment with a pattern.

The dining room isn’t a room that we spend much time in, so you can get away with going a bit more wild with pattern. Experiment with wallpaper, table linens and other details in stripes or florals for an interesting look. If you’re going to mix patterns, stick with a monochromatic color scheme to stop the patterns from taking over the whole room. 

Don’t be scared of color

A bold color on your walls makes a real statement in your dining room. Be bold, whether you paint all the walls or paint just one as a feature wall. 

A dining room that makes a statement can make your home feel more stylish and give your a wonderful space to entertain friends and family in a room that you can be proud of. Get a little creative with your space and make a room that is functional and beautiful.

    Loving these tips! We’re starting the process of redoing our open plan kitchen/living and trying to pick the right table to suit our small space. So hard but we’ve decided on a round table that’s extendable for when we have guests. Great post and thanks for sharing!
