Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

For most of us, the bedroom is something of a sanctuary, a personal retreat where we can rest and recuperate after a busy day. New bedroom interior decorating trends are pushing this even further, adding ultra-luxurious appeal to our already comfortable spaces. Have a look at these bedroom decor ideas for inspiration:

Create Your Own Personal Retreat

When it comes to bedroom decor trends, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s no shame in splurging on yourself to create the most lush environment to pamper yourself in. Feel free to add extra plush pillows, larger bed frames, and super-soft throw rugs. Speaking of soft, you’ll also want to opt for softer colors and lighter hues that are easy on the eyes, rather than jarring colors.

Be sure to pay attention to overlooked aspects like wallpaper and flower decor, as these can really add those finishing touches to your room.

Hotel-Like Amenities

Along with the idea of creating a personal retreat, some home decorators are taking things a step further and adding perks that you’d normally find in a hotel suite. These include amenities like coffee makers, tea stations, candles, and even boutique soaps and high-end towels. These can really make you feel well taken care of and can add a fancy, extravagant look and feel to your bedroom (not to mention actual functional convenience, as well!).

Custom Beddings

Another up-and-coming trend is to pick out custom beddings for your room. We’re not talking about tacky pillows with your initials on them, or blankets with cheesy graphics. Rather, we’re referring to selections of custom fabrics that have been converted into beddings. These include silks, cottons, and other natural fibers that provide you with a look and feel that you can’t get with store-bought items. While this may seem costly at first, you’d be surprised at the deals you can score by linking up with a professional fabric dealer in your area.

Regional Themes

A good way to provide coherency for your bedroom decor is to work with a theme. Popular themes this year will include decor that is light, breezy, and open. These styles use lighter colors like cream and off-white, and focus on lighter bedsheets rather than heavy comforters. Examples include Mediterranean decor, oasis themes, and coastal/beach themes. These are perfect for San Diego homes!

Multi-Purpose Decor and Design

The master bedroom has become more than just a place to sleep — it’s now become an all-in-one space where you can do multiple tasks without going anywhere. It’s perfectly acceptable now to have various uses for the bedroom.

For instance, you can dedicate a corner of the room for a crafting/hobby station; or, you can have a designated spot for reading. As referenced above, you can have a small area where you can drink the coffee you brewed up in your room.  Along with these activities, you can also integrate decor to highlight the space, such as framed artwork or other hanging items. It’s your room — you can do as you please with it!

The entire function and purpose of the master bedroom has greatly expanded. Along with that, the opportunities for new decor ideas has also grown. Are you looking for new and exciting options when it comes to bedroom decor and furniture? Contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental. We have the perfect bedroom furniture items and packages for rental to help you create your own personal suite!

 

The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Besides color choices, interior lighting is one of those subtle aspects of design that aren’t directly noticeable, but can have a huge effect on the room’s overall appearance. After all, what good are your interior decor choices if you can’t see them? By following some simple lighting decor tips, you can bring out the best in any room of your home.

Top Lighting Decor Tip: Lamp Placement

In most cases, the main source of your indoor lighting is going to be some sort of lamp. The placement of the lamp is crucial for lighting. Consider these main placement areas:

  • Ceiling Lamps/Chandeliers: These are great for overall lighting and visibility in the room.
  • Floor Lamps: These can also provide about as much lighting as a ceiling lamp; they also have the added benefit of mobility.
  • Table Lamps: These lamps are excellent for providing concentrated lighting for tasks like reading, crafting, and hobbying.
  • Wall Lamps: These are great for providing dim lighting in areas where a small amount of light is needed, such as the hallway or the bathroom.

Don’t forget to consider the watt intensity and color spectrum of the bulbs in your home. Some bulbs provide more natural light, while others provide more “sterile” types of lighting. Also, some lamps provide multi-functional uses, and can be used for different purposes.

The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Use Mirrors and Windows Strategically

Other sources of light in the home besides lamps are windows and mirrors. Windows let natural light in from the outside, while mirrors can have the effect of reflecting and magnifying any light sources in the house. Pay attention to these two important aspects of the room, and use them to your advantage to control the amount of light you’re working with.

For instance, if you don’t want too much lighting in a room, you may wish to minimize the light coming in through a window using drapes or shutters. Conversely, opening up some blinds can brighten up a room instantly. This might seem like common sense, but many people don’t adjust their window lighting at all. You’d be surprised at the effects!

The Best Lighting Decor Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

Make Use of Lighting Accessories

Lastly, the field of lighting decor has a whole bucket of accessories for you to work with. Once you’ve got your basic lighting theme setup, you can customize your look even further with accessories like:

  • Custom lampshades
  • Colored light bulbs
  • String lights
  • Timed or programmable lights
  • Candles and fireplace lighting

Observe how these accessories and adjustments interact with your furniture and with the other colors in the room. Once you get into this area of decor, chances are you’ll love it and never want to stop! Your guests will be amazed at the dynamic effects that a few small lighting changes can make.

Lighting decor planning is one of the most fun and easiest aspects of interior design. If you need more comprehensive decor and furniture changes in your home, contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental. We have a whole host of furniture rental items and packages, as well as lighting items, to help you create the dream look you’ve always wanted.

 

5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Just because it doesn’t snow here in San Diego doesn’t mean that you can’t get into the winter spirit! When it comes to winter decor trends, simpler is often better. Here are some easy-to-do winter home decor ideas that can really transform your home into a winter wonderland:    

Bring the Outdoors Inside

If you notice, a lot of winter decor has to do with the outdoors: trees, wreaths, mistletoes, snow, etc. Take things a step further and bring some actual outdoor items inside and rework them into lovely decor. Pine cones and twigs work especially well here, as do logs and small tree trunks. These can be painted, stained, varnished, or just left natural to add a bit of freshness to your indoor setup.

5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Cabin/Ski Lodge Look

This theme is perfect for dens or living rooms! Transform your lounging space into a rustic getaway with some hanging antlers or a fur rug. Emphasize the fireplace and hearth with some hanging garlands to draw attention to the warm spot in the room. You may also want to consider adding more wood furniture, especially with your table and chair setup.

Finish it all off with a plaid throw blanket on the couch for functional, practical decor. Plaid scarves can also be used for some out-of-the-box touches.

Bring on the Brass

While the winter season is often associated with gold touches, brass works equally as well. The rich, deeper color of brass can really complement the evergreen candle holders, tea pots, brass reindeer and other figurines/sculptures, bells, and other items. It adds a touch of metal that is down-to-earth and not too gaudy.

Tip: Brass instruments can work well here too — put your old trumpet or flugelhorn on display!

Winter Treat Displays

It’s been a long-standing principle that food can be decorative as well as delicious. In particular, winter snacks can add a very charming and subtle touch to your living room or dining room. Set out some hot cocoa, S’mores, egg nog, or chocolate truffles to suggest a feeling of warmth and cozy toastiness in the space.

Tip: Throw some candy canes in your hot cocoa for added winter effect. The best part? You can eat the decor and come up with new ones everyday!

5 Simple and Easy Winter Home Decor Ideas for 2016-2017

Small Figurines

Ceramic figurines are making a big comeback this year. Well, they never really went anywhere, but they appear to be a hot item this season. We suspect that with all the technology and phones, people love to return to simple items that you can touch (but don’t break!) and observe without having to find in an app.

Popular figurine choices of course include reindeer, snowmen, and trees. A surprisingly effective figurine choice is a small ceramic log cabin (works especially well with the cabin theme mentioned above).  

 

As you can see, this year’s overall trend is to move towards a more traditional, old-time decor feel for the winter months. Try your hand at these ideas and see what variations you can come up with! If you need additional ideas for home decor and furniture, feel free to contact us at Signature Furniture Rental. We have lovely packages and individual furniture items available for rent, so you can achieve that look you’ve always wanted.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

In this age of digital media and ebooks, one would think that printed books would be going out of style. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. People still love holding books in their hands and curling up for a nice read. In addition, people still love collecting books and displaying them proudly in their bookshelves. Lately, bookshelf ideas are abound as home decorators come up with more and more ways to beautify their homes.

Bookshelves and book displays are a quick and easy way to add a touch of intellect to your space. Read on to learn more about some awesome bookshelf ideas!

Full Wall Setup

For those with lots and lots of books, a full wall bookshelf is ideal. This allows you to proudly display a large portion of your collection, and gives you immediate access to your favorite reads. While it may seem like a full wall shelf would take up a lot of space, the eye tends to interpret the shelf as basically a wall rather than an additional object taking up space.

Even better are wall bookshelves that are recessed into the wall — these really don’t take up any space!

Minimal Space Hanging Wall Shelves

Hanging bookshelves are excellent for smaller spaces. Rather than occupying floor space, these shelves hang on the wall, allowing you to use the extra room for other furniture like chairs, sofas, or even a desk.

Hanging wall shelves aren’t just limited to small spaces, though — you can use them in larger areas, like the living room or in the den, to make a spacious area appear even grander.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

Interesting Shapes and Designs

Speaking of hanging wall book shelves, an interesting trend lately is to arrange the hanging shelves in visually fascinating patterns. For instance, rather than just having a straight shelf, you can design a shelf in the pattern of a tree, with each branch forming a shelf level. Circular shapes and shelves in the shapes of letters and words are also creative options.

Glass Door Bookshelves

Books can be very fragile, and require care and protection. If you leave them as they are, over time they will experience damage, such as yellowing pages. One thing you can do to protect your books is to install a glass case bookshelf. This will keep your precious items free from dust, moisture, and other damaging elements.

Many bookshelves come with glass doors at the front; if you already have a bookcase that you love and want to add glass for protection, it’s a pretty easy do-it-yourself project.

Bookshelf Ideas to Smarten Up Your Home

A Few Additional Tips:

  • Get creative with the way you organize your books. Take a more visual approach and organize books by height, color, width, or other aspects.
  • Bookshelves can be used to store and display other items, such as picture frames, model airplanes, awards, and even odd items like plants or wine selections.
  • Facilitate reading by placing your reading corner or area near the bookshelf. Upgrade your reading spot with your favorite cozy chair or sofa, ample reading light, an end table, and maybe a small speaker or two for some ambient reading music.

Don’t let your old books go to waste! They can make really excellent additions to your decor lineup, and can spark up topics for discussion for your guests.

4 Rental Furniture Design Trends for Your San Diego Home

It’s always fun to stay informed when it comes to furniture arrangement and design trends. Implementing a fashionable idea is a great way to express your creativity while staying within bounds that people can recognize. People love seeing “your take” on an existing theme, and it creates communication between fellow designers and home decorators.

Here are 4 popular home staging and furniture design trends to keep your eye out for:

Most Popular Design Trend: A Return to Simplicity

At the moment there is a trend to move away from more gaudy, showy furniture design trends to more simplistic, streamlined arrangements. This means sharper lines, more modern colors (like whites, chromes, and silvers), and more open space. The end result is a furniture layout that mimics the minimalistic designs now found in our technology (such as our phones and computers). This also allows the room to “breathe” and creates a sense of ease and relaxation.

4 Rental Furniture Design Trends for Your San Diego Home

Softer Palettes

Along with the move to simpler arrangements, homeowners are opting for softer color palettes as well. These make it “easy on the eye” and help create a less intrusive, more inviting look. Softer palettes work extremely well for rooms where comfort is expected, such as the bedroom or the living room. It also creates a somewhat more neutral base if you’d like to highlight other aspects of the room, such as the windows or a specific piece of art.

For softer colors, check out Signature Furniture Rental’s Camden Chair in Stone or the lovely Travertine Coffee Table. We have a whole array of furniture colors for all your needs.   

Formal Dining Rooms

Formal dining rooms are back! For a while, people forgot about the dining room and just sort of started eating anywhere — at the kitchen counter, outside, etc. There’s nothing wrong with that; however, quality family time can be sacrificed if everyone is split up during mealtime.

Recently, there’s been a conscious movement to have an actual sit-down dinner with the entire family. We suspect that smartphones may actually have something to do with it. People have been hearing “no phones at the table” for a while now; in the process, it’s possible that people started realizing, “Hey wait a minute! We actually don’t even eat at the table!”

As a result, formal dining table setups are back, along with more quality meal-times. At Signature Furniture, we have loads of dining room furniture options for you to choose from to help foster that old-time family environment.

4 Rental Furniture Design Trends for Your San Diego Home

Using Furniture for Multiple Purposes

More and more people are renting items that can be used for multiple purposes. Part of this has to do with the trend of living in smaller spaces; people want to maximize the space that they have, and sometimes this means using furniture in fun, non-traditional ways.

For instance, “sofa tables” don’t need to be used strictly behind a couch. Their unique size makes them perfect in hallways up against a wall, or even in a bathroom. Likewise, end tables can be used for displaying art, propping up a lamp, or storing newspapers.

Basically, the possibilities are endless and the choices are up to you! Creative use of furniture can help you get the most bang for your buck. Are you looking for the perfect solution to your furniture and home decor needs? Give furniture rental a shot — you’ll have plenty of options to choose from at mind-blowing rates.

The Most Exciting Football Decoration Ideas to Try Out

Fall season is in full swing, and now is the perfect time for football decoration themes. These are ideal for parties, kids’ rooms, man caves, and just overall fun home design themes. Football season runs all through the rest of 2016 and culminates with Super Bowl 51 on Feb. 5, 2017.

Thus, you can make good use of these football decoration ideas for several months! Read on to learn some of the hottest trends for football decor and party themes.

DIY Football Field Table Cover

You can make any table look like a gridiron (football field) with a few simple items. For instance, you can use an old green rug or green felt to simulate an astroturf surface; or, to keep things simple, any green table-top cover will do. Next, you can paint or color in white lines on the table for the yard lines.

If you really want to get fancy, you can paint in team logos and designs in the end zones and in the middle of the field. You can get as detailed and elaborate as you like!

Concession Stand Corner

You can set aside a corner of your serving area for a mini-concession stand. What you can do is create small vendor-type boxes (the kind that the stadium vendors carry around) using cardboard or pallet wood. Then, you can place ready-to-serve brown bags inside, which will be filled with football snack favorites, including:

  • Popcorn
  • Peanuts/mixed nuts
  • Pretzels
  • Gummy bears and other candy

You can also use the vendor boxes to hold small cardboard trays of more substantial appetizers, such as nachos, buffalo wings (always a football party hit), or loaded potato skins.  The Most Exciting Football Decoration Ideas to Try Out

Football Game Day Mason Jars

You can never really go wrong decorating mason jars to fit your needs. For football decor, simply paint them to look like football-related objects. One of our favorites is the referee one. Simply paint a few stripes and add a whistle for effect — voila! Instant referee jar. Other jars include classic football jar, and jars painted with team logos. These are perfect for holding utensils, snacks, lollipops, or give-away treats.

Here’s a cool tip to remember: College footballs have the white stripes on both ends; NFL (pro) game balls don’t have the stripes.

Cheerleader Themes

Cheerleader themes compliment football themes very well, especially for Little League, high school, and college football. To create cheerleader decor, two items usually stand out as immediately recognizable: Pom-poms and megaphones. You can easily make mini pom-poms using twisted twine, shiny ribbons, or other materials. Megaphones can easily be cut out from cardboard or cardstock; if you have actual hand megaphones, you can use them as instant decor as well!

The Most Exciting Football Decoration Ideas to Try Out

Football Equipment Decor

Here’s a list of football equipment that also makes excellent decor backdrop. If you have any of these laying around (or any miniature versions), they make great additions for your setup. Or, you can usually cut these out using stencils and cardboard:

  • Helmets
  • Referee whistles
  • Field goal posts
  • Kicking tees
  • Footballs (of course)
  • Stadiums
  • Cleats
  • Shoulder pads

The rounder items, like helmets and the football, make excellent shapes for baked treats such as cookies, cake pops, and cakes.

There are tons of football decor ideas and projects — these are just a few to get you started. If you need complete interior decoration and furniture ideas, you may want to give furniture rental a try. At Signature Furniture Rental, we offer exciting rental packages, individual items, and accessories to help give your home or office the revamp it needs!

Top Halloween Trends 2016: Popular Decor Themes to Try

Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. You get to dress up, decorate the house, and overall have a blast with lots of candy. Most Halloween decor schemes can be somewhat the same from year to year. To avoid getting stale, check out the different Halloween themes 2016 has to offer. There are plenty of sources of inspiration to draw from that will keep you current and up to date. Try some of these out!

Inflatable Black Cat Lawn Decoration

Inflatable lawn decorations are really popular during Christmas and the winter holidays. You might recall seeing inflatable reindeer, Santas, etc. But they’ve become so popular that they’ve also made their way onto Halloween lawns. In particular, a really popular and trendy piece is the inflatable black cat. These are giant-sized cats that look like they’re ready to pounce on trick-or-treaters.

Some of them are fancy with lights and mechanized movement. While they’re more fun and cartoonish than sinister, be sure you don’t scare off the neighbor’s dogs!

Zombie Mania: ‘Zombify’ Any Costume or Decoration

A continuing trend from the past few years is the zombie costume trend. Zombies have been popular since the 1950s, but they owe a lot of their recent spotlight treatment to the TV show “The Walking Dead.”

One of the best things about the zombie theme is that you can “zombify” any costume or decoration. For instance, you can have a zombie Incredible Hulk or a zombie Captain America theme. Zombie themes work well for yard decor and can replace traditional skeleton decorations. Rather than skeletons, have a zombie hiding behind a bush, emerging from the ground, or sitting on a rocking chair on the porch.

Bonus: We’re pretty sure an election theme will be huge this Halloween as well. Zombie presidential candidates? You betcha!

Top Halloween Trends 2016: Popular Decor Themes to Try

Super Intricate Pumpkin Carving Art

Jack O’ Lanterns will always and forever be the most iconic Halloween decoration. But this year, the trend appears to be super intricate, delicate, highly detailed pumpkin carving art. These can be traditional themes like faces (more like portraits actually), but they can also involve entire mosaics and abstract designs as well.

Part of this trend appears to stem from more specific tools and carving implements, but really the source of pumpkin art is talent and skill. If you’ve got what it takes, try your hand at some carving art. Your neighbors will love it, and you can snag a picture of it for posterity.

Cosplay/Comic-Related Themes

As always, Comic-Con and all things comic and cosplay-related are a year-round thing here in San Diego. As mentioned in a previous post, Comic-Con themes are good not just for costumes, but also for home decor. Kick your interior and exterior Halloween decor up a notch by incorporating your favorite comic theme. Popular themes this year will be Deadpool, Suicide Squad, Avengers, X-Men, Batman, and Superman.

By incorporating some of these concepts, your Halloween setup at your house is sure to keep things interesting (and scary!).

Fall Themes for Decor That Will Wow Your Visitors

Fall is officially here! It’s that time of year again that so many of us love. Football games, Halloween candy, and Thanksgiving pie — what more could you ask for? As the weather cools off and the leaves change colors, we should also adjust our home decor to reflect on one of the more quiet, contemplative seasons of the year. As you’ll see, all themes are easy to integrate into your decoration or home staging scenes.

You might be familiar with some basic fall themes and decor ideas. Rather than restricting you to specific projects, this week we’ll lay out basic principles and concepts for you to build upon. Have fun with these ideas!

Fall Themes Begin with the Colors

Whether it be a table centerpiece, hallway decor, or a window treatment, the foundation of any fall display is the choice of colors. As can be expected, fall decor themes will basically mimic the changing colors of the falling leaves. You’ll want to use plenty of orange, yellow, and dark red (like bordeaux wine) to signify the autumn seasons.

Other colors also work very well, such brown for a background, or deep purples for accents. Of course, as Halloween approaches, black and orange is a given combination.

Pro-tip: Throwback Padres gear is perfect for fall with the brown, orange, and yellow colors. Hang a banner or shirt for some seamless team spirit decor!

Fall Themes for Decor That Will Wow Your Visitors

Fall is the Time for Harvest and Abundance

The fall months are dominated by two holidays: Halloween and Thanksgiving. However, apart from these themes, the main overarching fall theme for most people is that of harvest and abundance. An easy way to decorate your home is to incorporate items that are typically associated with traditional harvesting activities. These can include:

  • Baskets
  • Wagons
  • Garden tools (like pitchforks or rakes — those related to gathering rather than planting)
  • Garden boots and other clothing items
  • Cornucopias
  • Hay and scarecrows

Use Vegetation to Highlight Your Fall Themes

Along with the theme of abundant harvest, the use of vegetation and plant life can help you to create spectacular fall decorative creations. Again, your choice of items should indicate harvest; also, there are plenty of plant and vegetable items that are associated with fall due to their colors. These can include the following:

  • Pumpkins, squashes, and gourds
  • Persimmons
  • Dried corn (especially with the husk still on)
  • Sunflowers
  • Cranberries and other berries
  • Dried grass, twigs, and branches
  • Apples

For maximum effect, you can combine several different fruits and vegetables to really emphasize the idea of plentifulness.

Fall Themes for Decor That Will Wow Your Visitors

Outdoor Decor is Very Important

Out of all the seasons, fall is one that is more associated with the outdoors than others. Thus, you’ll want to make sure the outside of your home is decorated appropriately. You can line the porch steps with pumpkins and other harvest items. Use outdoor lighting to set the mood on the lawn and in the backyard.

You can take this a step further and “bring the outdoors inside.” Use leaves and other outdoor pieces to decorate the inside home. In fact, if you look closely, that’s what we’ve been doing all along — bringing the harvest inside for the family!

Overall, fall is the time to slow down, reflect, and prepare ourselves for the upcoming winter months. This can be reflected in your decor and staging style if you opt for an easygoing, relaxed, and warm feel.

Are you looking for more expansive design and decor options? You may wish to explore furniture rental options. Contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental for top-of-the-line rental packages and items to help you acheive the fall look you’ve always dreamed of!

The Best Indoor Plants for San Diego's Unique Climate

San Diego’s climate is a unique mixture of humid coastal conditions to the west and drier Southwest climates the more east you go. As a San Diegan, you can take advantage of this in your home decor simply by your selection of indoor plants. For a more breezy, surfer-life feel, you’ll want to include more broad leaf plants and colored flowers and colors; for a more Southwestern feel, you can go for more succulents and hardy, drought-resistant plants.

Here are some of the best-looking indoor plants that will hold up to the San Diego heat while at the same time providing your home with beauty and life:

Aloe Vera

Aloe (pictured above) is a type of succulent that can range from smaller tabletop sizes to larger pot-bound sizes. They require little care and watering yet can add a surprising depth of color to your home. The leaves are waxy to the touch, but inside the plant holds a surprising treasure: the sap inside has been used for centuries to moisturize the skin and soothe burns (especially sunburns from the San Diego beach life!)

Orchids

Orchids look good in just about any setting, but they look absolutely gorgeous in San Diego homes. Their natural pastel colors and velvety petals add an almost tropical touch to  your home. A line of orchids can create a breezy, summery feeling all year long, and are perfect if your home has a beach/surf motif to it already. For subtle touches, opt for mini-orchid varieties for table settings and windowsills. Peace lilies are another good indoor flower option.

The Best Indoor Plants for San Diego's Unique Climate

Agave

This is another type of succulent like aloe, except that it boasts a very interesting, pinecone-like geometry and shape. Like all succulents, they are easy to care for and will last a super long time. They come in ranges of green shades, but you can also find some stunning specimens in deep purple and blue (hence the term “blue agave”).

Sansevieria

This plant was traditionally used for making ropes due to its strong, fibrous leaves. Sansevieria can reach two to four feet in height, and loves indoor temperatures from 70-90 degrees Fahrenheit. It has a striking appearance with yellow bands along the sides of the leaves, which grow straight up and down.

Caladium (Elephant Ear)

Caladium or Elephant Ear plants are instantly recognizable by their broad, large, heart-shaped leaves. They typically come in a very dark green hue that adds a nice jungle-like coolness to your home. The wide leaves can grow anywhere from half a foot to two feet across. While most of them are green, they can also be other colors, such as blotched red (like below) or white with green veins.

Caladium plants thrive in warm weather, which makes them perfect San Diego indoor plants. If you’re looking for another leafy green with smaller leaf print, California Ivy is an excellent alternative.

The Best Indoor Plants for San Diego's Unique Climate

These are only a few of the lovely plants that you can use to decorate your San Diego home with little hassle. For even less hassle, artificial plants can also be a viable option, especially for staging purposes or other specific needs. If you need more extensive interior design and decor options, furniture rental might be appropriate for you.

3 Simple Themes to Boost Your Dining Room Inspiration

The dining room is the heart of the home. This is where families gather for dinner, family reunions, homework help, and everyday chatting. Undeniably, there’s something special about the dining room — maybe it has to do with mealtimes, fond memories, and special moments.

No matter how you use your dining area, your room decor speaks volumes about you. In many cases, dining room inspiration overflows into other areas of the house, especially open communal areas like the living room and the hallways .

These themes can help foster specific ambiences in your dining room:

Vintage Feel for Classic Dining Room Inspiration

For more old-fashioned, down-to-earth types, a classic look is always in style. This dining room decor emphasizes that the room is a gathering area for mealtimes. Choose furniture and accessories that employ a balanced feel, and avoid major extremes. Create a timeless sense of contentment by using earth tones and lighter woods — this will instill a feeling of ease and comfort, and create a neutral base for elegant flourishes.

For a classic look, try out the Hyde Park collection, available through Signature Furniture Rental.

3 Simple Themes to Boost Your Dining Room Inspiration

Hyde Park Dining Table

Space-Saving Essentials

Sometimes a simpler, more streamlined look can really open up the dining area. Sleeker decor facilitates a more spacious, comfortable vibe that will encourage socializing, mingling, and chatting — all important aspects for quality bonding time!

To accomplish this look, opt for a less-bulky table, smaller place settings and centerpieces, and open space in the walkways to the kitchen. This allows for free flow of traffic and is great for when you have guests. For this look, try the Camden Picadilly Table or the Soho Pub Table, with matching seating options!

Formal Family-Style Design

For important gatherings and events like holidays, reunions, and other milestones, a sturdier dining table conveys an atmosphere of permanence and rootedness. It says, “This is where we always meet,” reminding diners of the long-lasting bonds of friends and family. Darker colored furniture and accessories channel a more formal vibe, just like a darker suit is often required for a formal dinner.

For special occasions and everyday presentability, the Soho Dining Table makes a lovely centerpiece for the dining room. It features a rich espresso-colored frame and an elegant carmel onyx top. The Knightsbridge chair series complements the Soho table beautifully, creating a sturdy look.
