While we all love the simplicity of dining room sets and dinettes, it can be fun to break out of the mold with a new dining room table. If you love style and believe your dining room shouldn’t be only functional, it might be time to find some fun style pairings perfect for your space. Here are some style tips and ideas for freshening up your dining room.
If you don’t want to go with wild finishes or colors, you can still change up your style by keeping it simple. Find organic materials like wood or metal and pair them together. Keeping classic silhouettes in mind doesn’t hurt either. Keep your dining room table shape and chair shape simple, and it will make a stylish trend on its own.
If you’re a fan of mod furniture but don’t want to go full ‘60s in your dining room, there are ways to pay homage without going full over. Find a classic tulip table, or a set of mod chairs. Pair your mod chairs with an industrial inspired table for a new look.
If you love the look of the industrial table, try changing it up. Instead of going full wood table with benches, to complete the industrial trend, try changing up the chairs. Get something modern or classic. Try using upholstered chairs to bring in a more cozy feel to the harsher elements of an industrial wooden table.
If you want your dining room to have echoes of old Hollywood, but not go too far, try finding a glass top dining room table. They’re highly functional and easy to clean. Try pairing it with a brightly colored chair. If you want to add an extra touch, try for an upholstered chair for an added level of comfort.
Keep it neutral or white and find a long family-style table to match. This style of dining room table needs the appropriate space, but it sets the tone for a family style meal. Get wooden chairs, or add a bench or two for extra flair.
Whatever the combo you choose, be sure it reflects the style you want in your home. Consider the style of table and chair, to be sure it fits your family’s lifestyle. If your dining room table is the hub of your home and where the majority of homework gets done, you might want to lean more toward functionality. If your dining room table is rarely used or only used for one meal a day, or only formal occasions, find something fancier that suits your tastes.
