3. Introduce unconventional accessories
Tables and chairs are only the beginning when it comes to contemporary dining ideas. You can bring in a wide range of accessories – some you may not traditionally consider for a dining room, such as rugs, wallpaper, wall art, ornaments, and more.
When we think of a rug, we might consider their natural home to be the living room or bedroom. The right rug, however, can work well in a modern dining room setting, with something to suit every colour scheme. Go for a single colour, or try a design with an eye-catching pattern. An area rug can be used to ‘anchor’ a dining table within a space.
In some modern restaurants, you can often feel like you’re eating in an art gallery. Wall art helps to create a sense of atmosphere as you eat, so try one large piece, or several smaller pieces, to create a gallery wall. Text art can add a modern twist.
Consider other accessories, such as vases and lampshades. Also make a feature of some extravagant ceiling lights.
