Eating In Style – An Easy Dining Room Makeover

Food tastes so much better in a pleasantly decorated environment. It’s time to roll up your sleeves and renew your dining room on your own and on a budget.

We spend a good portion of our time at home in the kitchen or dining room. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee with friends or doing homework with the kids – the kitchen and dining room are our go-to place for all of these. If you’re tired of eating in a dull setting, it’s time to give the heart of the home the respect it deserves. Here’s how you can spruce up your dining room all by yourself with minimum effort.

Dominant wall

A dominant wall is a low budget, minimum work solution for creating a beautifully designed space – choosing one wall and turning it into the focal point of the room. You can do this with some solid color, wallpaper, a large picture or a patterned wall. Since the entire purpose of the dominant wall is to attract attention, don’t shy away from bold colors and daring patterns. You can choose a unique effect like metallic paint, or draw some lines or zigzag patterns on the wall. On the other hand, it’s best to moderate the overall look of the room using a more subdued color for the rest of it. Don’t forget that the room will pop out even more if the rest of the walls are white, so if you want it to be just a little bit less dramatic, you can paint the other walls in a neutral color like beige or off-white. If you’re redecorating your dining room, the wall behind the dining area is the best choice for a dominant wall – but of course you can pick any wall according to your personal preferences and style.
