Ways to Modernize Your Dining Room

1.    Replace dining room chairs with a bench

Gone are the days where padded dining room chairs with gaudy, towering backs filled dining rooms across North America. Today, interior designers are moving towards a more casual aesthetic with unique features such as dining room benches in place of chairs. Experiment with contemporary options like the Columbia Dining Room Table Set at our Calgary shop.

2.    Brighten the room with a pendant light

Furniture stores in Calgary offer a range of interesting, bright lighting options that will make your dining room feel more open and inviting. This is very much in line with modern interior design which follows a theme of open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows. Stylish fixtures such as the Jodene Pendant Light add brightness and flair.

3.    Incorporate a concealed storage space

Traditionally, homeowners everywhere would display their fine china in a large cabinet with plenty of open shelves and glass enclosures. This can create a busy feel, especially if you do not have much space to work with. Try storing your dining room essentials in something more streamlined such as the Premridge Bar Cabinet.

4.    Add height with bar stools

As previously mentioned, interior designers and furniture stores in Calgary are going for a more casual look as opposed to the grandeur of 20th-century dining rooms. One of the ways in which homeowners can take on this relaxed, modern feel is by incorporating bar stools like our Camino Pub Height set.

5.    Add some drama

If you choose to transform your dining room into a minimalist space, it is important to add at least one striking element that catches the eye. Pieces like our Anakin Pendant Lamp create a more upscale, notable atmosphere.
