Dining Room Furniture Ideas According To Decor Style

Posted on: 17 August 2019

No matter what type of decor style your home has, you can find a dining room table set that will blend beautifully with your other pieces. Once you've established your decor theme, you can then find dining room furniture to complement it by either visiting a local furnishing store or by shopping online.

Whether you've just built or purchased a new house, or simply want to update the home that you already live in, buying new furniture will give your dining room a personalized look. If you're on a tight home decorating budget, you may even be able to find a high-quality used dining room set at a second-hand retailer. 

The first step in choosing the perfect set is deciding on a home decor theme. You can either go with the same look throughout your entire home or decorate each room with a different look. For instance, you may pick a nautical theme for your living room, but a quaint country French-inspired design for your kitchen and dining room.

If you don't want to buy all new dining room furniture, you can opt to purchase just updated chairs, which will give the set new life, or simply paint or stain the table that you already own. If you're not crafty, you can hire a painting professional to do the job for you.

Here are some additional dining room furniture ideas to consider.


If you want a dining room that rivals the most elegant of restaurants, real wood furniture pieces are the way to go. As one idea, give the space a warm, rich look with a solid mahogany or oak table and chair set. The eye-catching furniture will become the focal point of the room, and you can enhance the look with a fresh flower-filled crystal vase centerpiece.

You can also add both comfort and opulence with high-backed, cloth-covered dining chairs featuring plush cushions. Chairs featuring light-colored fabric, such as white or cream, will look the most luxurious.

Shabby Chic

Another popular dining room style is a shabby chic look, which combines both casual and high-end elements for a relaxed feel. As one idea, choose a table and chairside constructed of reclaimed whitewashed barn wood, which is also an eco-friendly choice. 

Top the chairs with soft cushions featuring pink and white cabbage rose designs, or refined, French-inspired fleur-de-lis designs. Table centerpiece ideas include a vintage wire birdcage filled with candles or an antique milk glass vase. 


A Grownup Chair

When I was a little girl, my grandparents surprised me with a small wooden rocking chair. This adorable petite chair was painted pristine white. At night, I would sit in my rocking chair and read picture filled books while the adults in the family sat in their own comfortable chairs. Having a piece of furniture that perfectly accommodated my small short body made me feel like an adult. If your child struggles to climb onto the adult furniture in your home, consider purchasing him or her a child size chair. You might be amazed at how much your little one would cherish his or her own piece of furniture. On this blog, you will learn how to shop for the perfect chair for your child.
