Add Some End Chairs
End chairs, also known as captain’s chairs or host and hostess seats, are chairs that sit at either end of a table and are different from the chairs along the side of the table. Typically, they are upholstered or have armrests, and add some interest to the dining area by mixing up the seating options. A popular choice for this type of chair is a parson chair in a complimentary upholstery that features a bright color or even a fun pattern. This is an easy way to up the elegance of your dining area that only requires adding two chairs!
Add a Bench
Adding a bench to your dining area is an easy way to open up the space and add variety to the room. Benches are a nice way to save space, as they are usually backless and push up closer to the table. Great for kids and extra guests, benches add a welcoming and cozy feel. A bench that matches the rest of your set is always a nice choice, however don’t be afraid to play designer and pick something a little different but complementary to your set for some added pizzazz.
Update your light fixture
Updating or adding a light fixture above your dining area is an easy and often inexpensive way to change the whole look of the area. Light fixtures should be centered over the table and not necessarily in the center of the room and should hang about 3 feet from the top of the table to the bottom of the fixture. Don’t be afraid to go trendy or bold with your light fixture as it is something that is easy to change.
Add an Area Rug
Choosing a nice rug for your dining room can add comfort and warmth to the space as well as adding a design element. Rugs under a dining table should extend about two feet out from the edge of the table to provide ample room for seating. The color and pattern of the rug should be complementary to the colors in the space but should also provide contrast between the floor and your dining set. This is also a great way to protect flooring from the constant movement of chairs.
