Enjoy our round-up of the most budget-friendly and easy methods to make your dining room more beautiful now.
Time, cash and creativity can all be barriers to a transformation but not in the case of our budget plan dining room ideas. If you want to fix up a different room for dining, make an open-plan entertaining area more luxurious, or breathe life into a breakfast area squeezed into a corner of the kitchen, you’ll find a lot of motivation here. All of it quick, easy and most importantly budget friendly.
1. Revamp your table linens
A trendy table linen will update a tire table in minutes, covering up scratches and watermarks alike. Keep to a natural linen design for a less formal look, or use a runner if you’re worried a cloth might seem to fussy.
Use napkins and placemats as accents that pick out colours used elsewhere in the room, creating cohesion. Here, blue references out the lighting and crockery and yellow the paint at the top of the wall.
2. Alternative chairs for a bench
Adding a bench that tucks under a table is a budget friendly method to include extra seating, and a space-saving one at that. It can look the part in all plans, too, so whether your room has country-style Shaker cabinets or sleek and contemporary units, a bench could be the answer to fitting the entire family round the table together.
For comfort, load your bench with cushions and throws that will motivate the family to stick around and chat long after dessert.
3. Buy or make a brand-new window blinds
Make the windows the focal point of your room by hanging a lovely blind that demands attention. Choose a Roman blind so that the pattern is always visible.
4. Produce a small tiny art gallery
This immediate decorating win will double up as a talking point at dinner celebrations. As a rule, photos need to be hung at eye level, with the centre around 145cm from the floor.However, the perspective will mostly be lower in a dining room as you’ll be seated, so hang artwork a little lower, too.
5. Hang a statement light
Select a light fitting that matches the proportions of your table too big and it will overwhelm the space, too little and it’ll get lost. Hang the light low will produce a more intimate atmosphere, while choosing curtains in the same shade will accentuate it as a feature.
