There are some rooms in the house that benefit greatly from a quick and easy rearranging. Other rooms, such as the dining room, aren’t as flexible and require a little more creativity when it comes to sprucing up.

Whether you’re prepping for a dinner party or simply want to bring a little life to a stagnant space, these are a few tips for rejuvenating your dining room for spring.

Patterned rug

No matter the style, a dining room isn’t complete without a rug under the table. This is a chance for you to incorporate extra colors and patterns into a room that is generally visually flat.

If you’re choosing a new rug, one of the most important things is to make sure that your rug is proportionate to the room and to the table. Next, pick a color that stands out, but which also complements the room’s color palette. The perfect rug will add dimension to your dining room whether you’re laying it over carpet or a hardwood floor.

Colorful centerpiece

Place a beautiful centerpiece on your table or buffet for some seasonal color. Experiment with arrangements of different shapes and sizes to find the look that best complements the room. Flowers are a classic choice, but a large bowl filled with fruit is inviting, too! For spring and summer, my favorite centerpieces include a vase of peonies and a bowl of fragrant citrus fruit.

Set the table

Even if you aren’t expecting guests, liven up your dining room by preparing the table with dining accessories. Some items you might consider laying out include place mats, napkins with napkin rings, silverware and your porcelain collection. Every time you walk by, the added color and texture will be sure to lift your mood!

Mix and match

For a fun, casual look that’s perfect for summer, try mixing and matching your chairs. If you have a number of dining chairs and side chairs to choose from, mix them all together around the table. To play with color and texture, get slipcovers made for your chairs in a few different colors or a playful, summer-perfect print. The result is a unique, eclectic look that will have everyone gathering around the table for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Just make a few tweaks, and you’ll be amazed at what a big difference small changes can make. Now all that’s left to do is plan a dinner party!
