Vamp Up Your Dining Room

Decorating Tips from Sacksteder’s Interiors…

With summer just around the corner it’s time to brighten up your home dining area. Create energy within your space, and make spending time inside your home just as enjoyable as basking outdoors in the bright sun.

To get this look in your own home start with a paint color in an energetic and warm hue such as yellow, fuchsia, or orange. Can’t commit to all over color? It’s ok- remain calm, may I suggest starting out by painting one wall to be the focal point of the room.

New window treatments can easily liven up any room. Consider a valence that will hide blinds or shades as well as hardware. Choose a fabric that picks up on the wall color, or that enhances accent colors within the room. Don’t be afraid to choose a fabric in a bold color or pattern. Its summer! Let loose! Color is your friend!

If you have old dining room chairs that look down-in-the-dumps, give them a little Botox by adding cushions, or new upholstery in a vibrant color or trendy pattern. Could your chairs still use a little more love? Give them a face lift with a fresh coat of paint or lacquer in a high gloss.

Lastly, pull the space together with accessories and lighting. Adding a great chandelier or hanging lamp 30” from the table top will provide your family or dinner guests with beautiful light during your meal and adds great style to your room. Bringing in flowers from the outdoors or adding a flower arrangement will fill the room with life and fill your space with the feeling of summer.
