Revive your Dining Room with Modern Style!


Mod Furniture and Decor invites you to update and revive your tired old dining space with modern and contemporary elements for an updated and trendy look.  By updating just a few key elements in the dining room, you can easily create a chic space for a special family gathering or just to enjoy a delicious meal together.   We think you’ll agree that small updates with modern elements will make a huge impact in the dining room or any room of the house. 


Proper lighting is key.

Proper lighting is a key ingredient of a perfect dining room, whether it's one simple fixture or layers of light.  Glass pendant lights provide ambient lighting and put the spotlight on the dining room's beautiful table. But you can also enhance your dining room's design style with the right wall sconces.  And don’t forget that a pair of quirky table lamps placed on a sideboard wash the walls with light for subtle ambient illumination and a unique decorative touch.

Color Palettes for the Dining Room

Be inspired to spice up the room with unique and interesting color palettes.  How about a vibrant yellow and blue color scheme to give a small dining room a sunny and almost tropical look.  Use a neutral gray wall and add vibrant pops of red, orange and blue to make the room shine or create a bright backdrop with a creamy tone-on-tone paint treatment that helps create a warm and inviting place to linger over coffee.

Use of Decorative Elements

Here is where you can really show your creativity.  Are the upholstered chairs looking a little ragged?  Add slipcovers!  Slipcovers are an ideal solution for quickly changing the look of any upholstered chair. For added sophistication, have slipcovers made with your monogram.  If you have a collection of pottery or dishes, consider displaying them on shelving or within a cabinet or curio.    Don't forget the fifth wall – the ceiling. Add architectural details, paint a unique design or do both for additional decorative elements that will be unforgettable.
