Creating a Beautiful Dining Room Oasis

Every mom needs at least one grown-up place in the home where they can find peace and tranquility. They also need an area where they can entertain family and friends without feeling like they are in the middle of a child’s day care. The dining room can easily be transformed into just such a space.

 Clear the Clutter

The dining room tends to be a catch all for toys, half-finished projects, and all sorts of clutter. The first thing you need to do is clear it out. Put toys back into the children’s bedroom, store projects in the garage in plastic totes, and throw away useless items.

Dress Up the Walls

It is nice to follow the latest trends, but use what makes you happy when decorating the walls. A fresh coat of paint is an affordable way to brighten any room while wallpaper can create a certain theme. Use borders and coordinating colors to further embellish this space.

Window Treatments

Window treatments offer you a terrific way to add a pop of color, coordinate the room’s decor, and provide privacy. Sheers, window blinds, and drapes all keep others from seeing in while a pretty valance at the top adds interest without blocking the view of the great outdoors.

Functional Furniture

You may already have a dining set that works perfectly or could be painted to fit in with the new look you are trying to achieve. Otherwise you can purchase new pieces. If this doesn’t fit into your budget, check local thrift stores and online auctions for excellent deals.

Shed Some Light on It

The lighting is the last, and most important, feature in your newly decorated dining room. Task lighting includes a chandelier over the table and lamps on the buffet. Accent lighting includes small, decorative lamps as well as traditional candle holders from online stores like Lamps and More. You will find that tranquility and peace you need and deserve by creating a beautiful dining room that you, your friends, and family can enjoy. When you are not entertaining, use this room to relax in. It can be the perfect space for reading, crafting, or simply enjoying a little quiet time.
