Update your Dining Room

Dining Room UpdatesAt the start of the new year, one can crave newness. Even if you can’t afford to redecorate your dining room, some small changes might not be a huge financial burden and can really help to update your space and make it feel new.

New Chair Accents

If you’re not in love with your current kitchen or dining room table chairs, try adding cushions to them. Cushions are a great way to change the vibe in your kitchen, dining room, or breakfast nook. Cushions add a pop of color, pattern or texture.

If you can, find new dining room chairs to match your dining room table. There aren’t a lot of things that are taboo in the design world nowadays. Pairing modern chairs with an industrial wooden dining room table works in some kitchens. If you can afford to, buying new dining room chairs are a great way to update your dining room, without financing a new dining room table.


It may seem silly, but adding something new, even if it’s small can change the way your dining room appears. Try adding some new accents on an end table or even to a dining room table centerpiece.

Finding a new table runner, candlesticks or even holiday decorations is a great way to spruce up your dining room, without a huge bill. If you have your dining room table set at all times, it can be a great time to find a new table cloth or placemats, in a new vibrant shade. This is the easiest way to add a pop of color to the room.

New Dining Room Table

If you do want to invest in a new dining room table it could be the perfect time to start browsing. The holidays are over so there’s no immediate need for a formal dining room for the next few months. Look at tables, chairs and even sets. Dining room sets can be a great way to get deals on chairs and a table, while also keeping the design similar.


If you’ve never thought about adding a rug in your dining room, it can be a great way to add some warmth and coziness to your dining room. Putting a rug underneath the dining room table and furniture. Try to find a rug that extends at least 18 inches beyond the table. This will allow the table and chairs to stay entirely on the rug at all times, even when the chairs are pushed in and out.

Consider the type of rug you get for your dining room, as you will be eating over it. Dinner parties have the potential to create a mess, especially with children around, the potential for spilled dishes and drinks is high. Make sure that the fabric of the rug you choose for this space, lends itself well to vacuuming or cleaning. The fabric also shouldn’t be thick and dense for the purpose of pushing chairs in and out.

Using Pub Tables in your space








Pub tables can have a great function within your home. They don’t have to be used as the standard eating table anymore, they can serve many other functions. They come in many shapes, sizes and materials. Check out how you can use them alternatively in your home.

In the living room

If you’ve ever needed an end table for holding coffee table books or photo frames, may we suggest using a pub table? Pub tables in the living room can be a great way to change up the planes of your living room. With coffee tables, chairs and sofas, all at similar levels, it can be a nice change to include a slightly higher table off to the side. It can be used for multiple things, a small stack of books or perhaps a place where you can work as well. You could also put a pub table directly behind any couch. It could function as a small dining table for casual dinners watch a movie. Rather than mess up the couch by eating on it, try using a pub table in the living room as your snack headquarters during a movie or a big game.

 In the kitchen

 A pub table is also a great table to be used for dining. If you have a formal dining room, and only a small space for an eat-in kitchen table, try using a pub table. It’s a great table to use as a kitchen table, and a great space to use for kids doing homework or more. Using a pub table as a sort of breakfast bar is a great way to incorporate one into your kitchen.

In your office

If you have a small room in  your home that you’ve always wanted to turn into an office, it could be the perfect spot for a pub table. A pub table is much smaller and lighter than most official desks are, and is probably more affordable. It’s the perfect spot for a couple of file folders, your laptop and a mug full of pens or pencils. If you don’t have an office in your home, a pub table could be the perfect thing to put off to the side of your living room and use as a makeshift desk.

In the Entry

A pub table is a great entryway table, a place to use for car keys, purses, sunglasses and more.

Take a look at the space in your home and see where a pub table could be a great use to you. If you’ve wanted to redesign, try incorporating a pub table into the mix. Pub tables are one of those very versatile pieces of furniture that you can incorporate into many areas of your home.
