Dining Room / February 2, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
You may use it every day for every meal, or simply for elegant dinner parties when old friends and important business associates drop by – we are, of course, talking about the dining room. But regardless of how many times your dining room sees some action, it doesn’t excuse the fact that it needs to flaunt as much practicality and style as the rest of your home.So, with beauty in mind, let’s take a look at some tried-and-tested ways to add a touch of glamour to your dining space without breaking the bank…
Another advantage of round tables is that they present no corners, meaning they are more comfortable (and less dangerous, when thinking about little toddlers manoeuvring around those sharp table edges).And let’s be honest: who hasn’t stumbled into a table’s edge and walked away with a sore or bruised hip?
Finally, we had to lavish some well deserved praise on farmhouse dining chairs, as they naturally exude a certain homely charm that is impossible to resist. Usually made from simple pine and with an unfussy design, a coat of shabby chic pastel paint and a coat of furniture wax can really make them come alive. Tie-on cushion pads complete the look and add an extra level of comfort as well.
A simple wooden table, surrounded by dining chairs in lively colors add a lot of texture and style to the dining area, making the room look contemporary and informal.Dark table and light kitchen form a division, and create a nice contrast in the open dining space highlighted by the hanging subtle lamps.
