There are a variety of different ways that your dining room can be revamped and renovated to create a dining area that you love and can be proud of. Here are some quick and easy ideas for redesigning your dining room.
Redesigning Your Dining Room For Portability:
Creating a dining room that is easily accessible and ready for guests to enjoy is a great way to get the room ready for a big event. You can quickly and easily get your dining room in tip top shape for additional guests by moving the table to the center of the room, adding additional chairs to the mix and making sure that chairs have plenty of room around the edges if they are pushed out from the table. If there is not room to push the chairs out from the table then make sure that you can make walking room around the chairs otherwise.
Creating an Inviting Buffet:
A buffet is a great way to get everyone to eat what they want without having to get everyone at the table at the same time. This is a great method of redesigning the dining room for families that are not so close. Get them all to eat the same food without actually having to sit and eat together.
Creating a Dining Room that is More Inviting:
The family is often a hard group of people to please and they are not the easiest to get along with either. Creating a dining room that is more inviting by making the entire room more open, making the food more appealing, and making the guests form a line to enter into the dining room will help to alleviate some of the stress of dining room mayhem that often comes with family affairs.
Redesigning the Dining Room for Clean Up:
A dining room that is easy to clean up is a more comfortable dining room all together. If you have to spend an hour in the kitchen after the meal just to clean things up then there is little enjoyment after the average meal. Try using paper plates and plastic utensils or even plastic ware all the way. The quicker and easier the dining room is to clean the more time you will have with the family.
For green kitchens, try creating a meal that is 100% able to be cleaned without the use of immediate action. Such as the use of paper plates and a combination of finger foods that do not involve plates or bowls. If you can create an entire meal that does not involve the use of plates, utensils or any type of plastic ware then you have created the ability to feed each other without the use of additional items that cause waste!
Redesigning the Dining Room for Elegance:
A romantic style dining room can be created with some simple use of lighting and color. Try covering the dining room chairs with slipcovers that flow to the floor and tie around the back the way elegant wedding reception covers do. Black velvet slip covers for the dining room chairs can be purchased online for about $10 per chair. You can also paint the walls with a rich red hue that creates a romantic flare in the dining room. Add some candle lighting to the table and some elegant sconce lighting along the walls. A few sconces along the back wall of the dining room will give off just enough light to create a romantic mood in the room without overdoing it. A chandelier on a dimmer switch is another great option for redesigning the dining room. There are even chandeliers now that look like they are made from candles and the lights flicker just like a candle!
Dining room design can perform a variety of different functions from portability, functionality, romance, or ease of use. No matter how you redesign the dining room–make sure that this space is a warm and happy space that you and your family can share deep conversation in. The use of various types of lighting in the dining room will assure that various tasks can be performed in the room. From eating to talking and everything in between, the dining room is one room in the home where family should relax and have a good time!
