Anytime you decide to update your dining room you need to focus your attention on 4 things.
Get rid of the clutter; add some beautiful fabric, a fresh coat of paint and lighting. You need to remember the purpose of your room.
It has a primary purpose of only one thing and that is for you, your family and your guests to get together to enjoy a meal. Start by looking at your main foundation pieces. These should consist of your table, chairs and buffet.
Take the time to choose a paint color that will add depth to your space as well as a sense of class.
You could even go with a custom design and use some interesting paint techniques that will add uniqueness to your room that is both sophisticated as well as beautiful.
Anytime you try new painting techniques always practice on a disposable surface before you use it on a wall or ceiling. This will help you avoid any costly mistakes and a lot of time trying to cover them up.
Don’t overlook the addition of fabric for the room it is one of the aspects that can really make your dining room stand out.
There are many cheap alternatives to expensive custom window treatments that you can easily incorporate into your design. A quick search online or at a local retailer will find you some great ready-made panels and hardware for very little money.
A great way to add some class to your space is by hanging your curtain rods as high as possible and then choosing drapery that is longer than you need by just under a foot.
Instead of going out to buy new chairs try your hand at reupholstering your old ones. It will save you a bundle of money and create a chair that looks and feels like a new one.
It is quite easy to find cheap fabrics from leftovers at your local retailer. Mix up a couple of different pieces if you can’t find enough of one kind.
Your light fixtures can be easily redone if you don’t have the money to replace them. A quick coat of paint is a great way to upgrade them without spending a lot of cash.
If you still have some money left in your budget you could easily add a large framed mirror to an open wall to make the space feel bigger as well as reflect more light into the room. Don’t forget about your table setting. A group of candles in the middle is the perfect touch to finish your room off.
