Brightening up your dining area is easier than you might realise. Employ these 5 easy tips if you need to brighten up yours.

Add Patterns

A small splash of pattern can do a lot to brighten up the dining area. But where can you put that pattern? For me, the best place to add patterns in the dining area is to the window dressings. You could find some interesting patterned blinds and install them in the room. You’ll be surprised at how much difference it will make to how bright and light it makes the dining room feel.

Choose Interesting Chairs

The dining room chairs around the table is one of the things that people look at first when they walk into a dining room. Don’t pick dull and boring chairs though, choose something a little more interesting. It’s also a good idea not to overdo the wood too much. If you have a hardwood table, it could be a good idea to contrast it with some designer plastic or upholstered chairs to add something a little different.

Find a Good Tablecloth

Every good dining room needs a good tablecloth to make the room stand out. If you feel like your dining room table is a little bland and dull, adding a tablecloth will make a big difference. A simple plain tablecloth will add a touch of elegance to the room. On the other hand, a patterned tablecloth will add a more standout effect. You can easily find wholesale tablecloths online, so have a look at the different styles to see what suits your room and taste.

Position a Light Fixture Above the Table

Light is essential, so you need to think about how best to combine natural light with artificial lights. If you can position the dining room table near to the window, this will allow you to use the natural light in the best way possible. But it’s also a good idea to position the dining room light fixture directly above the table to make sure that the table has enough light thrown on it in the evenings.

Keep the Colours Simple & Light

Getting the colours of the walls right is one of the key things that you need to do when decorating a dining area. If you ask me, it’s always best to keep the colours simple and light for the best results. If you’re not sure what colour scheme to choose, pick a light, inoffensive colour and then match with a lot of white elements in the room. Colours that are too bold or loud never look good in a dining room.

Add Something to the Walls

If your dining room walls are looking a little dull and lifeless, you need to find something to add to them. This could be some framed photos or a piece of artwork. This will help to add something a little different and unexpected to the dining room. You could choose artworks that you love, or you could hunt for something new and appropriate that you’ve never seen before. It’ll give the life a new lease of life if you get it right.
