When was the last time you updated your dining room? Changing up your rooms in your home can be great fun, especially when completed and you get to see the finished results. When it comes to your dining room, depending on your budget, there are many ways in which you can switch things up. You could install a new carpet instead of having laminate flooring, add some artwork to the wall, change the furniture, add some plants, the possibilities are endless.
Below we look into four ways to update your dining room.
Change the flooring
One of the first things you will notice when walking into any room is the flooring. If you want to make a drastic change to your dining room, consider starting here. Depending on what you currently have, you could make a change from laminate flooring to carpet or vice versa. The colour of your flooring can also change as well as the type of materials you use. If you are unsure what to do, visit your local carpet shop to see some live examples. You can also use Instagram to see what other people are doing in their dining room for some inspiration.
Add some artwork to the walls
If you haven’t already got artwork on your wall, add it! In fact, consider adding artwork to all your walls within your home. Artwork can instantly make a difference and really make an impact on the feel of a room. It breaks up the white spaces, can add colour, and allows you to add a bit of your personality to the walls. Depending on your ability, you could attempt to paint something yourself. Alternatively, you can purchase replicas of professional paintings if you have a particular artist you like to follow. Paintings come in all shapes and sizes, meaning you can fit them within any type of wall in your dining room.
Change up your furniture
This option is the more expensive option on the list, but it could be the right time to do it. If you’ve had the same furniture for a while, now could be the time to update it to something new. You could look at getting a new dining room table, new chairs, or adding new furniture pieces like a console table or a unit. Depending on the size of your room will depend on how much furniture you can add or take away. When updating, try to think of some innovative ways to keep your home organised.
Add some plants to your dining room
Plants are great and can instantly change the look of any room within your property. They add colour, and personality to the room and are good for your mental health. They come in all shapes and sizes and are very affordable meaning you can make a change without breaking the bank. Why not pop down to your local garden centre and see what plants they have to get some inspiration. Over the months you can always move your plants around to add different dynamics to different rooms.
