Cheap and Easy Ways to Freshen Up Your Dining Room

It’s not unusual to occasionally become bored with your home’s look. At the same time, most of us can’t afford to completely redecorate every few years. That means it’s important to find simple ways to update your rooms without having to spend a fortune.

Fortunately, your dining room is one area of your home that can get a refresh easily. Here are some tips to freshen up the look of your dining room.

  • Cover, or uncover your table. If you normally use a tablecloth, remove it and go bare or opt for a runner, instead. On the other hand, if you usually leave your table bare, opt for a beautiful table cloth or runner to offer a change in the table’s look.
  • Swap out the centerpiece. Make your room eye catching again by periodically swapping out what’s in the center of your table. Choosing a new centerpiece for each season is an easy way to keep the room looking updated. Centerpieces need not be complicated or expensive. A candelabra makes a perfect centerpiece, as do cut flowers from your garden.
  • Cover your chairs. Chair covers completely transform your dining chairs. You can find chair covers for sale in seasonal prints, or you can choose simple solid color covers that match the room or coordinate with a tablecloth. If you have trouble finding chair covers on sale, choose a fabric that you love and make these yourself or have a seamstress make these for you. Fabric chair covers also offer a great way to keep your chairs clean, as these can be removed and laundered.

With these three tips in mind, you can quickly and easily give your dining room a makeover without spending a lot of money. Once you’ve seen how great your dining room looks with some simple changes, you’ll be ready to tackle every room in the house.
