While lots of decorations and clutter can make the dining room seem like a busy and lively room of the house, sometimes less is more, and designing a dining room with minimalist decoration, although it might be difficult to get rid of all the decor items, can help people to focus on the most important thing – the people who are actually using the room.
USE AN INTERESTING LIGHTING FIXTURE
This Minimal Dining Room was designed with little decor and opted for a big pendant lamp that immediately captures the attention of guests. This way the room is still within the minimalist trend but it doesn’t look completely bare.
Dark browns and earthy shades are combined with grey accent pieces to create an elegant Minimalist Dining Room. Here, the rug takes the centre role as the main decorative item along with an also grey art piece, which is placed not on the centre, but to the side, as if to distract the people from it.
Natural materials in light colors are a good choice for Minimal Dining Rooms, as they provide a calming ambience to the area and look good by themselves, not requiring any decorative items to make the furniture shine. However, in this dining room, it’s the natural lighting that accentuates the room and makes it look brighter and larger.
Plants are a great accent in a Minimalist Dining Room, as they always make the room feel fresher and more natural. The best way to get the most out of plants in a dining room is to use furniture made with natural materials, such as wood or stone, which will perfectly complement the plants.
DINING ROOM WITH BANQUETTES
Banquettes are perfect for a Minimalist Dining Room, as they are great space-savers and can help to create a more informal and casual ambience while still looking elegant.
