Modern Dining Room Design Ideas For 2017!

This post is provided by Jesse Hughes.

In modern homes, family meals are often eaten in the kitchen, with the dining room reserved for special occasions. 

The dining room should be a unique room, one that says something about you. A space that dinner guests can admire. What can you do to make your dining room stand out? How can you put a personal or family stamp on it?

Let us take a look at some fresh design tips for 2017 to help create a stand out dining room. The good news is that these ideas are all affordable. You would not need a huge budget at your disposal.

Make a feature of your dining table.

A well-chosen dining table can be an excellent talking point in your home. 

Here are a few points to remember when you are choosing the right table for your dining room;

-Large, distressed wooden dining tables work well in a rustically styled home.

-If your dining room is traditional, you may want to search for an antique carved table that adds individuality.

-A modern dining room benefits from a table made of materials such as glass and metal. Concentrate on simple designs and clean lines.

You can often get a great deal on previously owned tables. Especially the case if you are looking for a table that has a little wear and tear, to give it an authentically distressed look, see some fine examples here.

Think about dressing the walls.

The use of wallpaper can transform a bland dining space into something special. Ornately designed wallpaper can give warmth and a feeling of grandeur or add a touch of vintage style to your dining room. Try bright blues or yellows to give a natural and airy feel to a more modern style.

Mix and match your dining chairs.

Traditionally, dining chairs matched. That is no longer the case. Having a set of six different chairs is a fun and quirky way of stamping your own style onto your dining room décor. 

Use mirrors to their full effect.

Mirrors are a welcome addition if you have a dining room that is of limited size. Mirrors create a feeling of space. Stick to using a mirror as a feature, on one wall of the room. Locating it opposite a window can create the effect of extra light.

Bring plants into the equation.

Plants do not just add a natural feel to the decoration in your dining room; they are also good for the atmosphere and the people in the room. 

Plants process carbon dioxide to create oxygen which is released into around them. This is just one of the health benefits you can get from having plants in your home. A unique indoor plant can also serve as a great talking point around the dinner table. 

All of these dining room ideas can bring a whole new lease of life to your home. Why not put one or more of them to use, in making your dining room a special place to eat.
