Dining Room Decoration Ideas 

 

  1. Take a drum shade which is totally plain and dress it up with the help of ribbon. You can use a gray-blue colored ribbon it would complement the color of the wall. If you wish to create contrast then you should opt for some pop color.
  2. You can add character, interest and a beautiful pattern to the walls simply with striped wall paint, strips would make sure that your dining room no more looks boring.
  3. Lighting plays an important role, if you are changing the lighting then opt for industrial lighting and you can easily balance the look with natural and simple furnishing (for instance industrial lighting plus wicker chairs and wood tables, the distressed ones).
  4. If you haven’t already added slipcovers then hurry up and add them to the room they would change the look in split seconds it would give a more of a sophisticated look and you can even add your own monogram to the covers.
  5. Some people prefer collecting things, some collect stamps some collect plates if you are into collecting something then bring your collection to use and display it in your dining room, your collection would add a nice character to your dining room, you can even paint your hallway which straightforwardly leads to your dining room so that it compliments your collection.
  6. People often forget about the 5th wall which is obviously the ceiling, you can always add detailing to the ceiling, you can paint some pattern or add some chandelier to it, you can add rustic beams too, it all depends on you. Go for some pattern and some detailing, let your ceiling have all the limelight. 
  7. Have a huge dining room? if yes then what is stopping you from doing some experiments? add a nook to your dining room with some more seating arrangements, mix-match a little you can even add a wingback chair. 
  8. You can make an amazing statement by just add some bold color like neon green, some lamps (buffet) and draperies pattern. Go bright and bold to make an outstanding statement.
  9. If you are not into paints then you can opt for wallpapers, the market has a wide variety of wallpapers, you just need not get confused and get a wallpaper which defines you and your dining room, the market has a wide range of graphics wallpapers as well, I personally prefer cool graphics over floral wallpapers. 
  10. Go over the board when it comes to patterns, get a pattern for the ceiling, the chair covers, the wallpaper. Yes, a pattern for everything, it would help you make a statement and a worth a while look, make sure the chairs have a different pattern than the ceiling and the wallpaper. 
  11. You can add a nice rug to your dining room it not only would add elegance but would also add warmth and coziness to your dining room. If you wish to have a luxurious look adda Chinese cabinet. 

Note- focus on the detailing and the lighting

Fifteen-Minute Cleanup

Before we start with the fifteen-minute cleanup, we want you to know that you can’t keep your house in a tip-top condition by the fifteen-minute cleanup as it just involves brief cleaning. You can definitely make your place look a little cleaner when you are in a hurry with the fifteen-minute cleanup later when you get free you can opt for intense cleaning. 

  • Lets first divide the house into six cleaning areas, number one is the living area, number two is the kitchen, number three the bathroom, number four is the kid’s room, number five is the bedroom and number six is the dorm. 
  • Now let’s divide the work into categories. There are things that belong in the living room and not in your kid’s room and there is trash, the work gets divided into the trash, things that belong to that particular room and things that do not belong. 
  • Start with the living room, collect the trash and then throw it. one area at a time, once done with the trash start looking out for things that do not belong to your living room and then simply take them out of the living room, now pick up the cushions from the floor and put them at their right spot. once done with the living room move to the next area. 
  • Start with collecting the trash and then throwing it, simply repeat the steps, work according to the categories and you will be free within fifteen minutes. 
  • In between of intense cleaning if you are going to use the fifteen-minute cleanup your place would look up to the mark, that too all the time. 

Tips 

  • You should make a to-do chart for cleaning, mark the days and what you wish to do, to-do charts actually motivate us to do things, make a schedule and if you are thinking that you will be able to adjust to it within a day then let me inform you beforehand that you won’t, it usually takes a while to adjust to the schedule, place the chart somewhere where you can easily look at it. You would have heard about out of sight equals out of mind similar is the concept with the ‘to-do’ list, so it would be better if you place it somewhere on your refrigerator. 
  • You can always divide the work, if you have a roommate assign some areas of cleaning to him or her and some to yourself, it would not only reduce the time but would also help you clean in a better way. Imagine the efforts that you were going to put in Two areas now you can put in one and similar would be the case with the person to whom you assigned the remaining areas of cleaning. Working in a team while cleaning the house is always better than working alone, it is time and energy saving, requires fewer efforts and results in amazingly cleaned house.
