Hide CaptionShow CaptionNew lighting, a retro rug and colorful chairs help transform this space into a fun and energetic dining room.
The dining area continues the new design. A contemporary rug becomes wall art when hung on the wall with a carpet tack strip. Light-colored wallpaper is hung in the back of the corner cabinets to brighten them up. Roman shades tie in with the clean, contemporary look while shielding the dining area from too much sunlight.

The existing table is updated with off-white paint and the chairs are revamped with red seat covers. A globe hanging light over the dining table is a fresh addition to the dining room's lighting scheme.
