7 Easy Ways to Update Your Dining Room


Whether you’re an entertaining wiz, always prepping for your next soiree, or value the nightly routine of congregating around the table with your roommates or significant other for a meal, the dining room is the other heart of your home. Why not show it a little love and give it a bit of a refresh? From small adjustments like adding in a table runner or a placing a bountiful bowl of fruit as a centerpiece to wallpapering the ceiling, your dining room will be dazzling before you know it. And if that doesn’t get your decor juices flowing, some of our favorite designers and decorators shared some of their best easy dining room–improvement tips.

Here, 7 expert tips to get your dining room in tip-top shape for your next dinner party.

1. Update your tablescape
Draw your attention to your table and create a beautiful moment. From fresh new table linens to a large vessel filled with fruit for a centerpiece, the options are endless and can be easily updated with objects already in your home.

2. Add a statement piece
Making a bold statement in your room is not limited to a large chandelier. Instead, try swapping out the chairs at the head of the table for ones with a bit more personality—the mix of styles and patterns make for texture and visual interest.


3. Use the ceiling as your fifth wall
Don’t forget to look up! The ceiling is a great place to explore a bold paint color or a bit of wallpaper, or for adding an element of architecture like ceiling medallions. In addition to dressing up the space, a darker color can create the sense of depth, making the room appear larger.

4. Make the most of your bar cart
While your bar cart is predominately to show off your favorite bottles, it is also a place to add some unique accent pieces. Style it with beautiful glasses, vintage stemware, and brass accessories for a bit of flair.
