Dining Room DilemmaDebra
Is your dining room a little dreary? Does it feel disconnected from your home? If so, you’re not alone. While many of us spend time nurturing the decor and design of spaces like our kitchen, living room, and bathroom(s), we often neglect the dining room. The designers at Home Interior Warehouse would like to change all that! It’s time to decorate your dining room & turn it from drab to fab! In this blog post we’ll go over some of our favorite ways to add a touch of style and maybe even a little pizzazz to your dining room this season. Dining room dilemma, no more!
One of the easiest ways you can spruce up your dining room is by adding color. We’ve mentioned before how adding pops of color doesn’t necessarily mean painting your walls. However, if you have a spare weekend and are willing to get your hands dirty, changing the entire feel of your dining room is as easy as prep, prime, and paint. Choosing a paint color for your wall has never been easier. Many stores will even let you take a miniature sample of paint colors home for a nominal fee. We suggest you browse either of our showrooms in Walled Lake and Plymouth for inspiration. Each of our displays has been lovingly designed by professional interior designers so you’re bound to be inspired!
If paint isn’t what you’re looking for you can always add color by adding wallpaper to your dining room. Yes, wallpaper! Wallpaper has come a long over the last 30 years. Today’s selection of wallpaper include unique textures, bold prints, and lively patterns. Plus, with adhesive backing wallpapering your room can be as simple or as intricate as you like.
Furniture & Decor
As we’ve said before, nothing shapes your dining room like your dining room furniture. Your dining room table will undoubtedly be the focal point of your room and point from which the rest of your space will flow.
It’s important that you choose a style that not only meets your needs now, but will also grow with you in the future. We love this dining room set from Hooker Furniture. Dining room chests are great for serving meals buffet style but double as storage spaces. You can store items like table cloths, napkins, and serving platters in your dining room chest, giving you more room in your linen closet and more space in your kitchen cabinets. The intricate, lacy carved front of the Matisette Chest truly catches the eye. Traditional in function, this stunning chest is anything but boring! While dining room sets were once created in
one solid color or stain, nowadays designers are playing with colored accent pieces, patterns, and upholstered chairs. Many of our vendors even offer custom dining room chair upholstery. The sky is the limit when it comes to your choice of furniture.

Use rich reds with a little silver sparkle to decorate for winter. Fill a jar with cranberries for instant pizzazz. When spring arrives swap out the cranberries for some baby’s breath or colorful pastel eggs. Lemons and limes are perfect for summer and you can’t beat fresh twigs for fall.

If the furniture is the focal point of your dining room, then the lighting is the highlight. From a design standpoint there are a variety of looks you can accomplish simply by changing your lighting. Lighting can truly make or break your design. It’s often the last thing we think about when decorating a space but adequate lighting is so important, we think it ought to be first. Use lighting to highlight your favorite works of art, family photos, and wall decor. Soft lighting is ideal for hosting gatherings. Combine floor lamps and table lamps to create a multi-functional space that’s perfect for the variety of ways you’ll be using your dining room. These pendant lights and chandeliers by Bassett are right on trend, combining elegant style with modern finishes.
Whether you’re hosting a holiday get-together, having a family lunch, or playing games with the kids, your dining room is so much more than a place to eat; it’s a place to live.
