6 Dining Room Updates for Less Than P1000
Find out how to improve the dining area even on a tight budget
The dining area is one of the busiest spaces in every Filipino home. This is the place where we gather to share meals, exchange stories, and simply enjoy each other's company. It is also the spot that serves as a second living area and a common work area for the children and the adults alike.
Although the dining room is used three times a day or more, it is usually not given the attention and the care that it deserves. Unfortunately, it is often left messy, cluttered, and disorganized.
If you would like to improve your dining area without spending a lot of money, here are practical tips that you should consider today.
Many dining tables are buckling under the weight of far too many things! For a better table, remove the sauce bottles, ketchup packets, restaurant flyers, and everything else on the surface. You should also make it a habit to clear the table after every meal.
If you are a fan of the Real Living magazine and website, you may have noticed that most of our dining tables have no tablecloths. For a clean and modern look, you may want to consider not using one as well.
However, if you feel like your dining table is not beautiful enough, maybe you can simply replace the tablecloth. Recycle your old and ratty piece and purchase a nice new cloth for your dining table.
Many homeowners only use their good dinnerware on special occasions. However, you may want to consider bringing out the matched sets for everyday use. These special pieces can instantly make your dining area look a lot better.
You can also try moving your dining set around. You may be surprised to see how a new layout can update the feel of your space.
We also love the idea of pairing the dining table with different kinds of seats. These can create a more relaxed and laidback appeal in the dining area. It can also be more comfortable for your family and friends.
Never forget to decorate your dining area. Start by mounting framed art pieces and mirrors on your walls for a more visually appealing room.
