Here’s the next page in our contemporary remodel guide. Let’s talk about the dining room!
After the Kitchen
In our last guide, we discussed remodeling the kitchen. However, after the kitchen, we have to discuss the dining room. After all, once you’ve prepped all of your delicious food in your freshly remodeled kitchen, you need somewhere to bring it! That brings us to the importance of the dining room. This is one of the two primary hosting areas in the house. For many, having people over for meals is the only way they host. So, let’s get your dining room into shape.
Remember what we said in the first guide? Open concept is a must-have look for a contemporary home. If your dining room and your kitchen have a wall between them, it’s time to take them down. During a remodel, moving and adjusting walls can be easy work. Take advantage of that and make your home more open concept. If your dining room is in really close quarters with your kitchen, you can replace regular walls with something less restrictive, like glass dividers, shutters, or many other things.
If your dining room is being remodeled, you may as well let us dig our claws into the bones of the room. Whatever window you have facing your dining room, it’s almost certainly not as nice as it could be. A great look for a contemporary home is a large bay window facing the yard. Don’t settle on a small window that won’t let in any light. Give yourself the gift of great curb appeal and a well-lit dinner.
Hosting in Class
While you’re upgrading your dining room, there’s more to consider than just the bones of the room. There’s also the paint color on the walls, the light fixtures, and the molding, if you have molding at all. Contemporary homes do best with either a warm accent palette or a cold one. If you’re going with warm, a nice brown coffee color on your walls would be lovely. Brown paint adds a kind of rich, earthy feeling to any room. If you want a cooler palette, you can’t go wrong with a dull blue color. Don’t choose something so saturated that it will overwhelm one’s attention upon entering the room. The gentle touch of blue is meant to compliment the decor and furniture in the room.
