Does your dining room seem dull and boring to you? If so, then perhaps it’s time to decorate it with more style. Besides buying new dining furniture there are so many other ways to liven up your dining room, infusing it with style and making it seem more put together. Here are some great style tips that can help you breathe new life into your dining room.

1. Add an area rug to pull together the colors of the room.
The area rug should be large enough to fit under the table and chairs when the chairs are pulled out. Be careful not to get too big of a rug, though. There should be some flooring showing between the area rug and the walls. The best way to measure for an area rug is to take the length and width of the table and then add on another four feet in all directions. If you’ve been wanting an entirely new style in your dining room, adding an area rug is a great opportunity to go with a new style and then redecorate the entire room off of that rug.

2. Add a centerpiece to your dining room table.
Does your dining room need to be livened up? Try a flower arrangement for instant color. Try decorative candles to bring some light into the room. A glass bowl or vase with fruit will add more of an earthy touch. Centerpieces provide a great venue for you to get really creative. You can change them often, depending on the season or the mood you’re in.

3.  Add some style to the room with a piece of artwork or a set of shelves.
Do you have anything on the walls in your dining room? Consider acquiring a bigger piece of artwork as a focal point for the room. Or find two or three pieces that can be hung on different walls that will tie the room together. Another great option is to hang one or two shelves on a wall. Then you can put pictures, candles, or other décor items there to add some decoration to the room.

4.  Set the dining room table for a finished look.
A nice set of china complete with placemats or an elegant tablecloth can really ad a finished look to your dining room. This will help the room to appear more welcoming, rather than cold and uninviting, to guests. By changing the place settings according to the different seasons and holidays, in addition to your main setting, you ensure that you’ll never grow tired of what your dining room looks like.

5. Incorporate some style with a new light fixture.
Lighting always makes a difference in a room. Chandeliers look great above a wood dining table, and you can also add more lighting by placing tall standing lamps in the corners. Find a chandelier that fits the style of the room. Chandeliers can be adjusted to the perfect height that will give the room the right amount of light.

There are so many more ways to add more style to your dining room. If you allow yourself to be creative and envision what your ideal dining room might look like, you’ll be able to make it happen.
