Designing the Perfect Dining Room

Suave Camel Corner Chair

Spring is here and summer is quickly approaching. In addition to getting your summer clothes out for the summer weather, there’s also no better time to dive back into experimenting with food and hosting dinners. If you’re planning on entertaining guests this summer, don’t let your dining room dissuade you.

Here are some simple and quick ways to spruce it up for those afternoon brunches and dinners that go late into the night.

Get Rid of the Unnecessary

The first step to giving your dining room a new feel is to get rid of any clutter, which will distract from any elegance or unity that you’re hoping to achieve. If you have furniture that no longer fits with your new design, consider swapping out that furniture for something new. Secondly, you want to make sure that there is a clear path from your kitchen to the dining room to streamline the process and make entertaining that much easier.

Natural Decor

Take advantage of spring and the beautiful, natural decor. Flowers are inexpensive and an easy way to brighten your dining room and give it a welcome feel. Try to use as much natural light as possible if you can. If your dining room has a large window, make that the focal point and choose curtains that augment the beauty of the outdoors.

Alternatively, artificial light can dramatically elevate the appearance of your dining room. Chandeliers or hanging fixtures are perfect for formal occasions.

Color Palette

It’s been proven that colours can actually affect our perception of food. That’s why almost every fast-food restaurant uses bright colours in their decor.  Warm colours will increase your appetite and encourage eating.

If you’re looking for a few pieces to create your own unique dining room, you can find a full range of quality options at Executive Furniture Rentals.
