Everyone knows what goes in a dining room, right? Table, chairs, and a side board are all essentials. Because the furniture components are pretty much pre-determined and limited, dining room design can sometimes be a challenge. That’s where the styling comes in. You can achieve a stunning dining room by incorporating the elements listed below.
Because dining room furniture usually takes up the center of the room, this is the perfect space to display an oversized or dramatic design element. This could be a large piece of art, a beautiful view, or a large mirror,
as seen in the dining room above. The bright white and subtle distressed gray finish of the Oyster Bay collection from Lexington furniture gives your room a look that blends casual, coastal, and upscale elements. These unique pieces will bring your personality into the space.
The right lighting will cast a flattering glow on your guests and set the tone when you are entertaining. If you can, layer your lighting by using a chandelier accompanied by sconces, small spotlights that highlight the table or table lamps on the sideboard or buffet.
This not only makes your dining room design stand out, it gives your guests, who may not know each other, something to talk about. An oversized light fixture, a collection of meaningful photographs, or interestingly styled bookshelf will create interest and give your guests a glimpse into your personality.
Keep your dining room design fresh and interesting by mixing materials and textures into the design. For example, the Baxter Upholstered Side Chairs from the Oyster Bay collection stand out against the backdrop of a stone accent wall. They add a homey and cozy touch that brings warmth and softness to the space. The exposed wood legs in a distressed white finish keep the space unfussy and vintage casual.
Create a mood that encourages your guests to settle in and enjoy their meal. You can do this by installing dimmer switches for the overhead lighting and use candles on special occasions. These elements will imbue the room with a cozy, enveloping vibe perfect for entertaining.
Add a sideboard or buffet to keep you from running back and forth from kitchen to dining room when entertaining friends. You can set up a bar and/or serve food from this area. A buffet with closed storage will keep extra cutlery and serving pieces handy. In addition to being practical, a sideboard will also give you another area to display collections or table lamps when the dining room is not in use.
