Some of the best memories are made around the table. It’s a gather place, a place for conversation, a place to dine, and a place to bond. What better time to talk about trends in dining spaces than in the most dining-room conscience time of the year: Thanksgiving.
Five Dining Room Trends in New Home Construction
A popular trend in bathrooms and living rooms, reclaimed wood finishes are now finding their way into the dining room. Reclaimed wood is an easy way to turn a cold space into a cozy, and intimate dining experience. And because reclaimed wood varies from piece to piece, no two spaces ever turn out the same!
Luxurious gold, cool silver, and glowing bronze are the latest high fashion colors for dining rooms. Adding a metallic twist to your dining room can feel ultra-modern or give it a classic, antique feel. The overall lighting conditions, room design, room size, and trim finishes should all be taken into consideration when plunging into this new wave dining room trend.
Whether you choose to spice up your dining space with a metallic, reclaimed wood, or even solid stone wall, the key is committing the entire space to the accent wall, without competing with it. Be sure when you are choosing the accent wall, you select the focal wall of the room, otherwise the room can feel to heavy on one side and off-balance.
Reemergence of the Formal Dining Space.
The open floor plans of the past few decades are taking a back seat when it comes to dining room design. Many homebuilders and homebuyers are opting for a design that offers a distinct and dedicated space for the dining room, often consisting of a three-walled room that is more traditional, intimate and cozy.
White and Wood.
What better way to pull together modern and rustic than with white and wood? The bold, solid-body color of white mixed with rich wood textures is a modern twist on rustic. The combination is so bold, it requires little other color or décor to pull it off.
The season of matchy-matchy finishes is over. Homebuilders today are mixing dark woods, with light woods, with brick, and with tile. The key to pulling off this look is making sure nothing is too similar, while keeping the tones pleasant and coordinating with accessories. This is the perfect option for large, open spaces.
Just think: spaces like these could be yours to call home by next Thanksgiving!
