Some of the leaders in the home décor industry encourage people to try out new ideas and come up with a comfortable space that that is in tune with their client’s personality. This helps customize the space and make it less cookie-cutter and more unique and personalized.

When it comes to decorating your dining room, we have some incredible design ideas that you can use to create a dining area that is chic and sassy yet comfortable and inviting.

Update With Wallpaper

Wallpapers are no longer associated with old “granny” houses of the 1970s. Different designs have emerged that range from cool graphics to updated florals. The use of wallpaper is actually making a comeback and can be used to create a vibrant, stunning space.

Embrace Your Creative Side

A little creativity can go a long way in helping to design the perfect dining area. You can make a huge statement by simply using bold and complementary colors such as green and pink. A mix of bold colors and matching decor items help create a dining area that your friends and family will be talking about for months. The sky’s the limit! And if you’re not uber creative, check out sites like Pinterest for some decorating ideas. If you’re feeling like going all out, hire an interior designer to help.

Experiment With Lighting

When it comes to decorating any room of your home, lighting is everything! Good lighting can quickly transform a dining area into a totally different space just as poor lighting can create a space that is uninviting. Chandeliers have the ability to brighten up a room and instantly changing it from the boring space it was to a much lively place where people would love to gather to share a meal and a few laughs. Accent lamps can be used to bring a subtle bit of light to smaller, darker corners of the room as well.

Go For A Stunning Ceiling

Commonly referred to as “the fifth wall” of a room, the ceiling is mostly neglected when it comes to decor. People forget about the poor ceiling and settle for a plain white popcorn finish that is dull and boring. But not you! Try this simple trick; add some architectural details or paint a unique design on the ceiling or do both. Who said ceiling paintings were reserved for the Sistine Chapel?

Display A Collection

A display of some of your favorite collectibles will do an amazing job of personalizing your dining room. Personal collections carry with them fabulous stories that can be conversation starters for dinner parties. Better yet, if you are feeling uncomfortable hosting a dinner party you can take a quick look at your valued collection and be comforted as you remember all of the wonderful memories that cling to every piece.
