People often neglect their dining room when it comes to changing the decorating style. Sometimes it’s because they have all the furniture for the room in one style and fear nothing else will improve the room. Sometimes it’s because the room is seldom used, so tiring of the appearance isn’t a problem. However, with the new metallic material, carpeting, wallpaper and accents on-trend this year you can easily bring the old dining room look to life without purchasing new furniture. You’ll find adding a bit of sparkle to the room can change the frequency of use and make it one of the more popular rooms in the house.
Gold can create elegance to a room and fits in well with many different types of décor from Italian Renaissance to Traditional. One key to creating a beautiful dining room is to make certain you have plenty of natural lighting to show off the metallic gold curtains you just bought online, metallic coloured pillows or large rugs with touches of gold within the pattern. You’ll be amazed at how adding metallic accent pieces or even gold metallic wallpaper can enhance a room and change its appearance entirely.
Of course, using gold metallic isn’t the only way to create some eye-popping appeal to your dining room. Almost any of the metallic colours can brighten the room and create a sense of elegance. You can create a dramatic look if the entry to the dining room has an open arch or simply a cut out rather than a door. Paper the interior of the opening with silver metallic wallpaper and use the balance of the paper on one wall of the room. Accent the room with silver on the other walls or use silver curtains. You can mix an abundance of colours with silver, particularly neutral colour on the other walls.
Bronze and copper also add romance, charm or elegance to a room, depending on the decorating style. In many cases, you can use the bronze or copper metallic as the neutral for the room and decorate with other colours that blend well. Both bronze and copper will enhance a Mediterranean décor and look stunning with almost any colour. Consider copper metallic voile panels or curtains to create a stunning accent for the room or voile as a different style and textured wall treatment to bring the room to life.
