Statement pieces High-end dining settings are reinventing the look and feel of a dining room. Furniture designers are producing innovative tables and chairs that can really add a creative aesthetic. If a new dining table is out of your price range, consider an artwork to grace your walls for wow factor. Pendant lighting Well-placed pendant lighting can be the hero of your dining room. It need not be too dramatic; something simple can be equally effective. Before selecting your lighting, be sure to get an idea of the room’s scale by taking the dining table’s width and length into account. Indoor plants Create a fresh look by adding indoor plants. The indoor plant trend is far from over. Adding a tabletop plant, or larger, standalone potted plant, is a cheap and easy way to create a fresh look and feel. Plants also supply that much-needed pop of bold colour.
