1. Open Shelves with Wine Bottles

Even if you’re not a wine collector so to speak, you can still display your favorite wine bottles on a set of open shelves. This brings a touch of sophistication and a hint of your personal taste to the room. Even if it’s just the two buck chuck from Trader Joe’s!

2. Add Built-Ins

This may not be doable for everyone, but built-ins are a fantastic way to add both storage and style. Customize them to match your dining room’s aesthetic, and use them to display beautiful dishes, glassware, or even books. They can easily make your dining room feel more cohesive and polished.

3. Stained Glass Art

Stained glass art is an incredible way to infuse your dining room with color and light. I love that depending on the time of day or the lighting, the same piece of art can show different colors. It’s a unique and beautiful addition to any dining room.

4. Large Framed Map

I love traveling. Small staycations to large international trips – I love it all!

Choose a large map that holds personal significance, such as a vintage map of your hometown or a world map to inspire travel conversations during meals or talk about places you’ve been.

5. Oversized Clock

With an oversized clock, it’s always dinnertime, right? Opt for a clock that complements the room’s style— whether that’s rustic, modern, or industrial.

6. Vintage Mirror

Anthropologie broke the internet a few years back with their fabulous gold antique mirrors. Since then, many brands have come up with a similar “look for less” design – such as this mirror from Wayfair!

Not only does a large mirror help to create a sense of space, but it also reflects light, making the room feel brighter and more welcoming. Look for a mirror with a unique frame to add character.

7. Wall Tapestry

8. Painted Accent Wall

The magic of paint! If you’re on a budget, this can be a great option for giving a focal point without spending a ton of money.

Choose a bold color that contrasts with the other walls, or opt for a subtle shade that complements the room’s decor. An accent wall can add depth and personality to your dining space.

9. Mounted Vintage Plates

By incorporating these creative decor ideas, you can create a dining space that’s not only functional but also reflects your unique style and taste.
