5 Top Tips for Decorating Your Dining Room

The dining room is a key part of any home. It’s the space where families come together, eat, and reconnect at the end of each day, so knowing how to style your dining room can ensure that this space is perfectly suited for the needs of every family member.

And yet, brainstorming dining room ideas can be equal parts exciting and overwhelming. Having to consider everything from table décor to wall décor, means creating your dining room design can be a challenge. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be!

At Bubuland Home, we have put together some ideas to get your dining room styling project off the ground. So, without further ado, here are our 5 top tips for styling your dining room this season.

1. Ideas to Illuminate Your Dining Room Design

Finding the right lighting is essential for creating the perfect dining room décor. Not only will this work to highlight your beautiful furniture and accessories, but it will also allow you to better use the space. To find the perfect balance of light when styling your dining room, you will need to consider the size of the space. A larger dining room can pull off extravagant, bold light fixtures, whereas smaller spaces will be better suited to more subtle lighting.

Lighting can also be part of both the table and wall décor, so you will need to decide which option best meets your family’s needs.

2. Designing & Styling Your Dining Table Décor

Imagine your dining room without the dining room table – what do you see? Just a room, right? The dining room table is the main feature that will set off your entire dining room décor, so treat it as such. Work the room and choose a table suiting both your space and needs. It should be able to fit comfortably and accommodate practical items like dinnerware, as well as eye-catching centrepieces and accessories complementing your dining room design. Your choice of dining table décor will help to tie the whole space together, so choose wisely!

3. Know How to Mix and Match Dining Room Ideas

Once you have your perfect dining table, it’s time to accentuate it with more elements of your dining room décor. Experiment with colours, textures, and materials by mixing and matching table décors like tablecloths, runners, placemats, and napkins. Choose those that pair well with one another, no matter the combination. This way you can rest easy knowing any messes or spills won’t affect your overall dining room design and table décor.

4. Experiment with Colour When Styling Your Dining Room

Knowing how to style a dining room involves understanding the power of colour. Your chosen colour palette will set the tone for your dining room, as well as influence a variety of other dining room décor decisions. If you are striving for a traditional look, neutral options like beige, brown, white, or grey can help to shape your dining room décor. Or if you are looking for some fresh ideas, introducing splashes of colour with accessories and linens can transform everything from table to wall décor.

If you’re still trying to find your perfect palette, don’t be afraid to play with bold colours and shades. By mixing and experimenting, you may stumble on the perfect contrast that sets off your dining room décor. You can intentionally create contrast by matching unexpected colour combinations. Who knows, you may even be inspired to reconsider all your dining room ideas!

5. Do Not Underestimate Dining Room Wall Décor

The focus of a dining room may be the table, but wall décor can have a massive impact on your overall décor. Using the blank canvas that is your dining room walls provides you with endless opportunities to personalise the space. Do you have a favourite piece of wall art? Have you been longing to create a mural using the perfect colours to tie the room together? If so, then don’t wait a minute longer!

Knowing how to style your dining room means taking every aspect of the space into account, including wall décor. So, break out everything from the photo albums to the paintbrushes and add a personal touch to your dining room design.
