3 keys to modernizing your dining room

May 17, 2021

Gone are the days of traditional dining rooms in every house. Homes are trending away from the specific room dubbed as a dining room. Modern homes often have fewer walls dividing each area allowing one room to have versatile uses. An open space concept can be used for dining, entertaining, or lounging. This doesn’t mean you don’t need modern dining room furniture in Calgary. You might not have the money or time to break down a wall to open up your traditional dining room or maybe the structure of your home doesn’t allow for this. Not to worry, you can still update your dining area to give it a modern look. Here are some tips on how to get your home into the 21st century.

1. Add brightness

One way to open up space is to make it bright. Older homes are often darker and more closed in due to the number of dividing walls. You can add brightness to your dining room by adding fun miniature lights that follow the shape of the room’s ceiling. Modern furniture stores in Calgary carry tons of lighting options such as colourful pendant lights, star-shaped lamps and hanging fixtures to add some modern pizzazz to your space. Having more light makes your space appear larger.


2. Accent features

Do you love colour? Using a vibrant colour really brightens a space up, even if you are just adding a feature wall. Balance out the monotone colours of the rest of your space with a bright purple wall or any vivid colour that speaks to you. The wall will not only stand out and express your modern tastes but boost your mood. Different colours evoke different emotions so why not do an internet search for the emotion you want your coloured wall to emit. When shopping for modern dining room furniture in Calgary, choose some bold coloured chairs. Give your room a burst of energy by having bright red chairs in your dining space to really add that modern look you are going for. The bright red chairs will go great with your freshly painted purple accent wall. Add a new modern dining table constructed of glass, metal or acrylic that can also double as your computer desk for those work from home hours.


3. Get crazy with pattern

Nothing says fun and modern quite like crazy patterns, like a geometric printed rug. Adding this type of pattern to your dining room gives it a modern twist. It also becomes one of the focal points in your dining area. Now that you know some simple ways to make your dining room modern, you are ready to begin the hunt for modern dining room furniture in Calgary. Remember to keep most of your space simple but add in some fun features like the ones mentioned above for that truly modern look.
