Celebrate a Brand-New Dining Room Set

As we near the start of the holiday season, we’re all probably thinking the same thing: we wish we had upgraded our dining room decor this year. But in the world of discount furniture, any time is a good time to purchase a new dining room set for your home or apartment!

Today we’ll explore just some of the ways you can reinvent and rearrange your dining room decor for yourself, your guests and family.

Your Dining Room Centerpiece: A Table for Any Size Gathering

Here’s one way to think about your dining room: your sense of style starts at your dining room table. Ask yourself what style reflects you, then how many guests you expect to see this year, and plan your decor around that. By the time you’ve chosen your rustic centerpiece, you’ll be amazed at how easy and intuitive the rest of the decorating becomes. The trick of the game, as always, is to get the ball rolling; and in the case of your dining room, that means knowing the aesthetic and the mood that you want.

Go one step further and invest in an extension dining room table that’ll seat and serve 5 guests for an intimate evening, then extend up to 7 or 8 on those most festive of occasions.

A Dining Room Buffet: Perfect Storage for Your Plates and Utensils

If you’ve ever wondered what you could do to revolutionize the look and feel of your dining room, your surest bet may be a dining room buffet or server. An ideal place to store extra plates, wines and utensils, the buffet frames the space itself, exuding a natural beauty of its own as well. We particularly enjoy rich antique woods and smoky finishes to contrast or complement the dining room table in the room. Buffets can range from sliding to displays, and drawers, in any color and style you could want for the space.

An Underestimated Piece of Upholstery: Your Dining Room Bench

How do you ooze cool in your dining room without overburdening the shelves and walls of your room? An upholstered leather bench would be the answer, of course. Perfectly squeezed between a pair of two dining room side chairs, your fabric or faux-leather bench can invite the eye, and cushion your guests as you spend the evening surrounded by delicious food and delightful company.
Whether it’s plush and tufted or entirely wooden, you may find that your dining room bench becomes a favorite among your friends and family, sooner than you realize it.

Design Tips: The Bedroom

Your bedroom is probably your home’s most sacred space, the place to let your guard down and be yourself. It’s where you start and end your day, pass out with a pizza on Friday night (we’re not judging), pick out the clothes you’re going to venture out into the world in, and curl up into a ball under a pile of blankets when you’re feeling down. So choosing furniture and other decor for this room is very important. Here is some design advice to simplify this task.

Consider the Temperature

No, we’re not talking about opening a bedroom window or turning your thermostat up. Rather, what’s your bedroom’s emotional temperature, the dominant mood you want to set there? Are you extremely warm and welcoming? Then so should be your bedroom. Paint the walls with a warm hue. Accent your bed with colorful pillows. Accent the room overall with bright curtains.

Or what if you need to chill? Then cool colors, such as blues, greens, and violet, are in order to calm you down for the night.

You know who you are, so make your bedroom’s temperature into a reflection of yourself, and you’ll always feel comfortable in your most intimate, personal and private space.

Form and Function Are Your Friends

The two most important things to consider about your bedroom are that:

It suits your style and looks great. It looks like you. It’s a reflection of you.
It’s functional. It’s comfortable. It’s sensible. It’s logical.

In other words, you shouldn’t choose a beautiful-looking bedroom space that makes no functional sense, or vice versa. In the spirit of feng shui, a Chinese theory of interior design, think about what type of balance makes sense for you.

How big is your bedroom? Be realistic, because cluttering it won’t make sense. Less is usually more. Think about how it should flow to suit your routine.

Once the logistics are squared away, think about how you can achieve your needs in a manner that is most suitable to your style. Of course we have a wide array of items in our bedroom furniture inventory that will suit any taste.


So, now that we’ve gone over two important bedroom tips, we have a little homework assignment for you. Ask yourself these questions:

What temperature is your overall mood, and how can you make your bedroom reflect that?
What can be changed about your bedroom to make it more functional, and cohesive with your routine?
How can your personal stylistic preferences be applied to the newfound functionality of your bedroom?
