Redesigning is one thing while replacing furniture is another thing. Redesigning can be a productive activity for some people. It can hone creativity and make the house looks better. But when it comes to replacing old furniture with new ones, things get extremely complicated.
You don’t want to replace the good old ones, but they need replacing to match the whole look. If you are restyling the dining room into a modern one, then you need a modern dining set. It is how you can get such furniture without throwing them all.
Traditional Meets Modern
Wooden furniture is irreplaceable. Everybody loves its neutral color that promotes nature and warmth. With clean lines and comfortable touches of the modern, such furniture seems hopeless.
To save the antique furniture, add one or two modern chairs with wooden elements. Soft materials for back and armrests are enough to introduce modernity. Place them face to face on every side of the table.
One of the notable modern elements is dark colors. Thus, every dining set style would suit the modern one as long as this one element is present. To make the use of your firm old, rustic dining table, paint it in black or other dark colors. Combine it with chairs of matching color. Then place a dark modern décor item like a vase on top.
Do you love your vintage dining chairs? You can save it for your modern dining room. Glass and bright elements are also things for modern style. Pair those chairs with a glass tabletop. Choose matching material for the table leg with that of chairs. So there are no too many styles in a single room. A white porcelain vase or candleholder on the table is a good combination as well.
When talking about a dining set, make sure it matches the room style. If it doesn’t, you must blend those styles. One way to do that is by incorporating the new into the existing one. That way, you don’t need to throw out the good old ones.
