Once upon a time, the dining room was a place where important family meetings were held and decisions were made over a hearty meal. Today, however, families opt to eat in the living room or bedroom and only use their dining rooms for gatherings and special events.
At Prestige Decor, we don’t want your dining room to settle in the dust! Your dining room can still be elegantly maintained and beautifully upholstered at an affordable rate.
Dressing the dining room: What looks good and what doesn’t?
Depending on the size and location of your dining room, it may not get much light. This can make it appear dark and dingy. Using long and heavy upholstery can filter out the amount of light that enters your dining room.
The ideal type of window treatments for dining rooms allow more light to pass through, making your dining room airy and spacious. This includes curtains in sheer materials with lighter patterns, plain voile sheer fabrics and simple shutters with elaborate panels. In fact, any simple window treatment, with the right panelling, can add a luxurious and homely appeal to your dining room.
Worried about pricing? Don’t be! The best part about simple and elegant dining room window treatments is that they can be easily executed at any budget.
12 Tasteful Dining Room Upholstery Designs You Can Implement on a Budget
If your dining room has a monochrome look or sticks to one family of colours (in this case, earthy tones), this design is for you! A simple window treatment with draperies that match the colour of the rest of the room is sufficient. You can use a traverse rod for mounting sheer drapes and a stationary I-Beam rod for the panels. The velvet jacquard fabric on the draperies complements the creamy texture of the furniture. The tassel tiebacks also accentuate the sophistication of the curtains. Generally, you should match the fabric of the side panels to the material that is used for the primary draperies to avoid making the room seem old-fashioned.
This design is best suited for rooms with high ceilings. The Athena draperies look stunning and mimic the effervescent colours outside of the house. These flowing draperies are full-bodied, ideally suited for ceilings above 16-inches and are available in a myriad of colours and patterns! For best results, we suggest doubling the number of draperies to add more layers to your vibrant windows. You can upholster the sofa and design the tablecloth and floor rugs with our colourful Sunbrella fabric that complements the Athena draperies. We suggest using a decorative rod that matches the design of the furniture to bring the entire room together.
This design is ideal if your house has a conventional dining room with a 14-inch ceiling. The goal is to preserve the traditional appearance of your dining room. To do so, you must choose a window treatment that includes an upholstered box valance and a bending track. Opt for a heavy, but soft jacquard fabric with tassel tiebacks and pick a fabric colour that complements the walls. Draperies with gold embroidery heighten the opulence of the tapestry, making it look extravagant. To temper the riot of colours on the tapestry, the curtain tiebacks should be made from plain fabrics of the same colour.
This design is ideal for softening the mismatched appearance of dining rooms that have stone flooring and wooden furniture. To do so, we steered clear of decorative rods, and stuck to a simple, wooden valance. The brown beaded bending matches the furniture and makes the room stand out. It’s essential to match the colour of the draperies with the colour of the floor rug. You could even choose to upholster the dining room chairs to match the colour of the granite floor. This type of colour-coordination can tie the room together. Moreover, if the dining room overlooks another house or condo,
This design is best suited for large dining rooms featuring an outside view. If the dining room is monochrome and white or pastel shaded with extra fittings, it may appear cold and unwelcoming. A solution for this is to upholster the exterior-facing windows with embroidered curtains that are sheer, pleated or lacy. This way, the curtains frame the window exquisitely and add depth to the hollow-looking room, without taking the attention away from the view. We hung nature-themed paintings on the wall to infuse colour into the room.
This design works perfectly if you have a glass-topped dining table and wooden flooring in your dining room. Since the wooden floor is very prominent, window treatments in an earthy and natural tone look fantastic. If there is no room for decorative panelling in your space, we can install a bent KS track that will follow the shape of the wall and blend in with the crown moulding. This will create the illusion that the window frame is much larger. The earth tones on the thick, pleated curtains are made from linen fabrics. To make the room pop, choose dark brown and cream shades for the wallpaper.
This design is a perfect fit for white or ivory themed homes and minimalistic dining rooms. The small grommet panels are ideal window treatments because they are easy to install, and can be adjusted to let light in, or closed to filter out the sun. A great way to make this room pop is to have multi-coloured curtains. The purple base compliments yellow curtains with chairs to match.
This is a clean and modern design that is well-suited for homes where the living room doubles as a dining room. Here, the dining room upholstery should match or complement the upholstery in the living room area. Velvet curtains add a luxurious layering to the dining room window. The decorative rods that match the finish of the chandeliers and furniture add a beautiful touch to this bedroom. Simple tack topside panels that match the colour of the living room wall add a subtle elegance to the window. Using the contrast of the pastel colours, you can brighten the room by upholstering the seats in strong, toned animal prints.
This is an example of a traditional formal family dining room that is characterized by its use of open space and installation of large windows. The sheer size of the windows didn’t leave much room for embellishments or decorative rods. A wooden valance and crown moulding can add an artistic flair to the window and make it appear less conventional. If the room is big, it is best to use Voile sheer fabric curtains with tassel tiebacks to highlight the spaciousness of the dining room. Tassel tiebacks also work for smaller rooms because they create the illusion of a bigger room. The sheer curtains also allow more light to come through, making the room appear brighter and larger.
This design is the perfect solution for dining areas that are in living rooms cluttered with furniture. To protect the furniture from sun exposure, use I-Beam tracks with simple side panels to mount sheer draperies. These transparent draperies keep the light out, without making the room too dark. The side panels have to bend on one side, but the middle panels would bend on all sides. This is what gives the window treatments their beautiful shape and finish. For more of an elegant finish, you could add thick curtains that match the colours of your floors with tassel tiebacks.
This design is excellent if your dining room opens out into the kitchen and living room. Usually, extremely cramped open-style dining rooms appear to be quite harsh looking. Here, we used window treatments to add a softer, more elegant touch to the room. Whether you choose traditional Roman valances or a Russian balloon valance, ensure the valances have soft, and round edges as boxed valances may appear too harsh. To have a more formal and refined look, match the pleated curtains with the paint, tiles or wallpaper. Match the dining chair upholstery to the furniture of the room and add festoons or swags with jabots for the top of the windows to complete the look.
This elegant design caters perfectly to large and spacious open-style dining rooms. It is best to implement this design during the transition from winter to summer. Using white slipcovers on some chairs, while leaving some uncovered, can mimic how the world looks when the snow begins to melt. The uncovered chairs add a splash of colour to the monochrome room. Flat roman blinds and sheer white draperies created from polyester makes the room appear brighter and ethereal. Installing decorative side panels makes the room more sophisticated. This design is best if the room is painted white or in fresh pastels. To infuse a hint of summer, place a vase of fresh flowers.
