This poetic statement by Jennie C. Jones, an artist, introduces the concept of minimalism in a beautiful way.
She says that minimalism is a perfectly balanced space between 0 and 1.
A dining room is a place where a family has its meals and spends some quality time together.
The place should be designed in such a manner that whoever enters it should feel extremely at ease.
Your entire home should reflect positivity, but the dining area should reflect warmth that fills your heart and tummy.
The warmth of the dining space comes from your personality, food, and aesthetics of the space.
Some people like their space to be over-the-top and extravagant, while others like their space to be very simple and effortless.
Minimalism is all about finding a center point of these two styles – not very extra, but not too simple either.
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you create a minimalist dining room.
1. Go for Lighter Tones.
The easiest way to maintain a minimalist space is to not experiment with darker shades. Instead, go for neutral tones for your walls.
The color palette of lighter shades makes an impact on the lighting of the room too. It makes the room look brighter and lighter.
Shades like beige and warm browns can give the space an earthy tone.
2. Opt for Space-saving Furniture.
Furniture is an extremely important part of your dining area.
When choosing a dining table, you should go for some space-saving yet extendable dining table.
If you are hosting any friends, it should be easily extendable and not make the place look clumsy.
You can go for rustic neutral tones in your furniture – be it a table, chairs, or storage cabinets.
Even cane furniture is a great option for minimalist designs.
3. Add Some Greens.
Plants are the best decor pieces that do not look very aesthetic. They add just the right amount of pop of color that every minimal space requires.
Another perk of having plants indoors is the freshness and positive energy that they bring in.
You can use macrame potters or wall hangings to keep your plant pots and vases.
But always remember that to maintain a minimal look, you cannot put overboard a lot of plants in your space. Also, keep the plants alive.
4. Set the Dining Table.
A beautiful flower arrangement or some candles with a crafty centerpiece can make the place look really beautiful. Or you can add a huge vase that can act as a focal point of the space.
Pampas is a great option to add to the vase to give a minimal vibe.
You can use a khadi table runner and napkins that are completely eco-friendly and give earthy vibes.
This will make the space and table look very sophisticated yet minimal.
5. Play With Textures.
Add some texture in the form of curtains, rugs, upholstery, and cushions.
The light-colored high ceiling curtains can make the space look classy yet subtle.
A rug with an earthy tone can be a perfect addition that also helps to demarcate the dining space.
Throw pillows and cushions with lighter tones are a great idea to make the space look comfortable and chic.
Setting up your dining space can be a really fun activity. It gives you a certain sense of achievement.
While setting up a space with a minimalist theme, you always need to keep in mind that the space should reflect elegance.
