Hello and welcome to our new dining room! We have lived in our house for the past three years and I knew some changes were needed in our main living space. There is a large area between our great room and kitchen that sat empty up until a few months ago. I knew it was the perfect spot to use as a dining area, but I was in no hurry to make the switch. Now I wish I hadn’t waited so long!
It’s hard to believe we had all of this unused floor space for so long. I also love it because now the great room, dining room, and kitchen all feel more connected. The room also feels a lot cozier!
I moved our sideboard to the new space and kept most of the decor on it the same. I felt like it needed a pop of color, so I moved this tray from our deck. Now I just need to style it. One of my favorite things about the sideboard is how all of our serving dishes are displayed there.
In the center of our table is this tray that holds salt and pepper, napkins, and extra bowls. Every now and again you can even find fresh flowers on it. I love the convenience of this tray and having these often used items within reach. Y’all know I love functional home decor.
This new space makes me so happy! I am very pleased with how it turned out. Also, I did not buy any new furniture for this makeover and used everything that was in our current dining room. What do you think? I hope this makeover inspires you to make big changes in your own home. I would love to hear your thoughts on our new dining room.
