Winter is here, and with it comes cozy evenings and comfort food. Your weekend plans are more likely to include movies on the couch than a picnic in the park. This is the time of year when everyone takes a closer look at their home and looks for ways to add warmth to the spaces. 

If your meal plans include mac and cheese or hearty soups, these 5 tips can transform your dining room quickly – adding the ambiance these meals require. 

  1. Add a Library – Add intellectual charm by lining a wall with bookshelves. Consider exchanging some chairs for a backed bench and create a multi-use room for dining and relaxing. 
  2. Wood Side Table – Adding wood accents to any room is a great way to add warmth to the look. Adding or replacing your side table with a warm wood cabinet incorporates natural beauty to your dining room while adding extra storage space. 
  3. Woven Back Chairs – Over the past few years, natural elements have made a comeback. Replacing tired upholstered chairs with wood or woven chairs adds interest and charm. 
  4. Chandelier – Adding a large-scale chandelier brings the eye up and into the warm glow of the light. A chandelier centers the space, creating intimacy and ambiance. 
  5. Candles – Simple taper candles on a cold evening change the mood of the room. The soft light of the candles invites family and guests to slow down and relax with some great food.

These are simple changes that will dramatically change the look and feel of any dining room. Warm up your dining rooms during these cold dark months with a few simple changes.
