Want to take things a step further? Don’t be afraid to play with bold colors and a variety of different textures. Create contrast by pairing unexpected colors and fabrics together – like lustrous velvet and earthy linen – and carry those colors through the room with the help of a fun printed tablecloth or rug.
It happens all the time to those of us who love high-end decor: your eye wants one thing, your budget wants another and ne’er the twain shall meet. Or at least, that’s the way it seems at the time. The fact of the matter is, having a dining room that is expensive and having a dining room that looks expensive are two very different things. And if budgetary constraints are keeping you from the former, the good news is that the latter is much easier to attain than you might think. To get you started, here are eight fantastic budget-sensitive tips for helping your dining room to look its very best.
This is by far one of the best tips for giving your dining room a facelift with a small, simple gesture. Gold flatware continues to be a popular trend in dining decor because the high sheen metallic finish can’t help but scream, ”high-end.” And if flashy metallics in the dining room aren’t your thing, try going for black flatware instead. You’ll get the same opulent look and feel with a moody, mysterious edge.
One way to spot problem areas before opening day is to sit in every single chair in your dining room. Study the view from each seat. You may find that one has a direct view into the kitchen, while another gets a draft from the front door. Experiencing each seat first allows you to make changes before customers complain.
As far as color is concerned, that’s a purely personal decision. Keep in mind that certain colors are known to transmit certain emotions or to work well with certain other nuances. Yellow, for example, is a cheerful color which is often paired with gray which is a rather boring nuance.
Lighting is a key feature of any room and should ideally provide a range of lighting options for every mood. Ample brightness is perfect for helping out with homework, while soft lighting is much better at creating an intimate dining atmosphere. Ideally, you should choose bulbs and fixtures that produce between 200 and 400 watts, but the real key is layering: make sure to use a mix of lighting sources including floor lamps, wall fixtures, candles and windows (Yes, natural lighting counts too!).
