Entertaining and hosting dinner parties means having a delicious spread as well as an inviting dining room. Especially during the holidays and special celebrations, you want to have an inspiring dining room that emphasizes the occasion. Is your dining room looking a little dusty? Here are three easy dining room ideas to revive your space.
Update the dining room lighting
Updating the dining room lighting is quick and impactful. Hunter’s lighting collections make the decision simple too. Our designers curated timeless styles in the variations you need for your space’s style as well as lighting needs. The stunning seeded glass of the Hartland chandelier pops in farmhouse dining rooms. The Hepburn chandelier complements modern dining rooms. Create a unique dining room lighting plan by placing two Astwood pendant lights on either side of the Astwood small chandelier.
Make it “smart”
Keep the dinner conversation going even if you need to adjust the room’s temperature and lighting: Hunter SIMPLEconnect® ceiling fans are Wi-Fi® enabled, so you easily make adjustments to your room environment with a simple voice command or by tapping an app on your smartphone. Hunter smart fans integrate easily with the Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa, so you can always be the attentive, ideal host for memorable meals without interruptions.
Dress up the walls
Give life to your dining room by adding conversation pieces along the wall. Add floor-to-ceiling curtains in a deep, rich color along a window. Bare walls feel dull, so add wall art to bring in color. If you have shelving or an open cabinet in your dining room, add colorful or glamorous cocktail glasses.
Remember your outdoor dining room spaces. Transform your porch, patio or sunroom into a “second dining room,” perfect for relaxed al fresco dining without sacrificing comfort. Hunter’s selection of wet- and damp-rated ceiling fans are engineered for maximum performance rain or shine in virtually any outdoor covered or partially covered space suitable for dining.
