Consider statement lighting.The simplest way to spruce up your dining room on a budget is to trade out your basic light fixture for a statement lighting feature. From large pendants to unique chandeliers. there's no wrong aesthetic. You'll want to choose a piece that feels authentic to your sense of style. That said. there are a few functional pieces of advice that you should follow to ensure your fixture works with the room.
Plus. since both paint and wallpaper are quite affordable. and application is easy to complete. this project is a simple way to create a focal point without undertaking any major renovations.Start by choosing which wall to accent. Typically. the accent wall will be the first wall you see upon entering the room: the wall that's furthest from the door.
Paint your moldingPlain white molding is to builder-grade homes as tile is to grout: you can't have one without the other. Some homeowners love the clean. bright look. but white molding can seem quite sterile. For a completely personalized look. consider painting your molding to add depth to your woodwork. Black molding creates a modern contrast. while a light brown makes for a more peaceful room.
Then. choose a middling shade (30%) for your secondary color and. finally. use pops of something bolder (10%) as your accent color.Choose dividers that let in light. Divide wiselyWhen designing your studio. you need to divide your space up somehow. That said. not all dividers are created equal. Using too many. or the wrong type. leaves your space feeling choppy. or unnecessarily cut off from the rest of the room.
