Dress up your dining room table this spring with some of these amazing ideas!
We may still be in the middle of the winter, but Ground Hog’s Day, Imbolc, and Candlemas falling in the first week of February gets us excited for the return of the sun, warmer temps, hiking, and other outdoor activities. As spring fever sets in over the next few weeks, use some of that inspiration and anticipation to redo your dining room for spring.
There are a lot of great themes you can choose from for a dining room, particularly one for spring. A landscape print depicting a green field with a smattering of flowers is a great addition to your spring dining room.
In addition to prints on canvas or poster prints, you can also get large tapestries depicting spring in nature. These are large enough to seem as though they are a mural, but they can be easily interchanged as the seasons’ progress throughout the year.
Here are some other great ideas for updating your dining room for the upcoming year.
Replace your larger dining table with a more versatile one
If you have children leaving the coup for college in a few months’ time, you should consider replacing your larger table with a smaller one that is still versatile enough to accommodate several additional diners. A much better idea is to get a smaller dining table that can be pulled apart in the middle to make room for extension leaves. You can have more space when needed, but if your household size is decreased the dining room won’t look quite so empty without those vacant seats.
Choose a neutral but durable dining table set
A dining set constructed of polished hardwood can likely last more than a lifetime with appropriate care and use. If you can find dining room table sets with free delivery, you can apply those additional savings to get a better dining set.
These dining tables can seem like the best option, especially in light of the fact that you can match it to almost any dining room décor. On the other hand, if you don’t want to do a lot of formal entertaining, you can opt for a modern or contemporary dining table set. If you do, make sure that you choose a neutral color like beige, tan, brown, or black so that you can easily adapt the surrounding decor and still make the room appear cohesive.
The best spring décor items
In addition to the wall art mentioned above, there are a lot of spring décor items you can bring into your home for the season. Bringing fresh flowers into your home can be very helpful in dispelling winter blues and bringing forth the spirit of spring, and you can usually find them from indoor nurseries at this time of year.
Of course, you also want to have more spring décor that is easy to make use of and easy to store when not in use. Throws, pillows, and other textiles can be easily changed out by season. If you need a place to store this excess seasonal décor, adding storage ottomans or a storage bench is a great place to stow them when not in use.
