Accessorizing a room is like putting the cherry on top of a sundae. It makes all the difference. No need to go crazy. since the goal is still to update your dining room on a budget. but adding a few finishing touches goes a long way.Try to use your space wisely. No one wants clutter. especially in an area that's meant to hold lots of people at once. A large buffet is beautiful. but only works if the space allows.
For example: something as simple as a few throw rugs really ground each area. Adding a few accessories—especially appropriate textiles and décor elements—creates a sense that the area has been fully finished.Use visual height to make the space look larger.Create visual heightWhen dealing with limited square footage. visual height is one of your best tools for making your space feel as large as possible.
Try a ceiling treatmentLook up! Most builder-grade homes don't do much with the ceilings. Usually. they're simply painted white. leaving more budget for other areas and details of the home. However. adding character to your ceilings can give your home a more lived-in. custom look. Try installing decking to give your ceiling more texture. or add a ceiling medallion to bring attention to a unique light fixture.
That said. there are a few things you can do to help ensure that your design remains cohesive. Remember: above all. the space should remain functional. Make a plan for your design before you begin. and do your best to keep function at the forefront. Don't be afraid to edit as you go. If there are ever so many design elements present that it gets difficult to identify the functionality at first glance.
