#HowTo Style Your Formal Dining Room


Do you have a formal dining room or specified area that you have absolutely no idea what to do with? Never fear! If you want to stray from the typical formal dining set and chandelier, check out a few of our favorite styling ideas to make your dining room as beautiful as possible!

1 – Different seating choices around one dining table can really add visual interest to a space. Instead of purchasing all items from the same set, select complimentary ones from different collections. Or better yet, hit up your local antique market or consignment store for the most unique finds!

2 – Add catchy words or sayings to your walls for a fun, diner vibe. You can also hang an interesting globe chandelier like this one to make a traditionally formal room in the house more casual and inviting.

3 – If you are going for a more chic, natural look, you can model your room after this one. Hang exposed light bulb pennant directly above the table to add a deconstructed aspect to the space.

4 – This fun modern dining idea is perfect for a renovated historic home. By pairing a whitewash exposed brick (or shiplap!) wall with clean lines of this style furniture, there is a really great balance of old and new.

5 – If you really are looking to add an eclectic colorful room to your home, this is the one. The star-like chandeliers paired with a solid wood table and beautifully colored chairs is so perfect for a modern home with rustic features. Add pop art or funky pieces to your heart’s desire!
