Your dining room is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s where you eat family meals, host dinner parties and bring your family and friends together to play board games. As a high traffic area in your home, you want your dining room to look its best.
These five tips will help you redecorate your dining room no matter what’s in your budget.
1. Re-finish your table and chairs. Since your table is the centerpiece of the room, it needs to look great. If your set is all wood, you will save a lot of money by sanding it down and either painting or staining it rather than purchasing a whole new set. You can also reupholster the chairs.
2. Add lighting. A standing lamp in the corner of the dining room won’t do the trick. If you can’t afford a fancy chandelier, there are plenty of how-to guides online for making your own. You can also opt for less expensive hanging lights or shop your local thrift store for a vintage chandelier.
3. Dress up your windows. Replacing your old window treatments or adding new ones to bare windows is always a great option to redecorate your room at minimal expense. Elegant window curtains will instantly elevate your home décor.
