Elevate the Elegance. When you think of a modern style dining room, think of it in terms of a woman's favorite little black dress. A simple black dress can be elevated in elegance with the addition of some shimmering silver or sparkling diamonds. You can create an atmosphere of grandeur in a modern designed dining room with the addition of some shimmering lights and sparkling accessories. Pendant lights work well in a dining room. They can be placed throughout the room to highlight areas of interest. They can also provide the perfect amount of light above the dining room table. The reflection of the light on the glass table top makes the surface sparkle like diamonds. A large silver mirror placed on an accent wall will add a shimmering affect to the entire room.
Second-Hand. If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
Dining Room Decor. Light colored or White colored walls will make the room look bigger, while in the event that you have an especially substantial room, darker colors can make it seem closer. Attempt to decrease bright primary colors: it is fine to have one brightly colored wall if the others coordinate with a more quieted pastel shade, yet an excess of color is not for the most part suggested for a dining room.
