One thing that immediately makes any space more welcoming, is comfort. So first and foremost, make your dining space more comfortable by adding new cushy chairs that have all the comforts of a couch, like the one's here in this living room, or just change the upholstery of existing chairs with a softer fabric. If your budget is very low, you can simply add a cushion to each chair to make your dining space more comfy.

The difference between style and fashion, is that style never fades. So give your dining space a stylish twist, by adding something that reflects your own personal style. Modern, minimal, rustic or classic, bring in a dash of your style with some sleek furniture, floral curtains or even a lack of too many things!


A dash of colour makes any space look brighter. So if you feel your dining area is overwhelmed with nudes and pastels, mix things up a bit and add a bold touch of colour to your dining room. You can opt for rad red chairs like the one's in this living room designed by MEULEN ARCHITECTS or opt for a smaller dollop of colour in the form of a few paintings or a tablerunner.

Table decor

Speaking of table-runner, table decor is another simple way to revamp the look and feel of your dining area. It is in fact, the cheapest and simplest way to make your dining room look more interesting. So place a glass vase with fresh flowers in the centre of your dining table, or opt for a funky table cloth, or simply light few colourful candles, and turn heads in your dining space!
