A part of invigorating the aura of your home is modernizing its overall look including your dining room NYC. However, this does not mean that you have to replace all of your furniture. You can simply add some pieces and subtract some. If you know how to mix and match furniture and fixture you can create a fresh look for your dining room NYC.

Dining Table and Chairs

While the dining table is usually bought with the chairs, you can actually purchase some new chairs only. Chairs usually wear more since people seat on them. If there are cushions, the upholstery start to fade and get torn. Cushions start to sag too. Joints and hinges start break as well. What you can do is search for modern chairs that go with your old table. Of course, this would only work if your dining table still look robust and relatively new. It should also have simple lines since modern furniture usually have cleaner lines.

If you are only getting some new chairs, you'd also have to consider the size of the table. To look well together the size of the chairs should be proportionate to the table. If you want more chairs to occupy the table, you may also purchase narrower chairs.

The colors should match as well. Dining tables and chairs usually have darker colors. If you want to go modern, you can purchase new sets as well. Some modern dining tables and chairs come in colors of steel and metal too. Glass has also been widely used in contemporary furniture.

If your dining table is primarily used for dining and drinking, having glass would be more ideal for you. Stains don't easily stick on it so it's easier to clean. It would also be easier to maintain its elegant look as well.

On the other hand, if you use the dining table for other purposes like doing homework and doing your own work you have to be sure not to scratch the surface of the glass too. If you like, using a wooden table with a glass on top would be a good idea too. If kids damage the glass, you can easily replace it without replacing the whole table.

Adding New Pieces to Your Dining Room NYC

While the focal point of your dining room is the dining table and the chairs, adding more furniture and fixture can also transform its look. For instance, you can add or replace your china hutch in the dining room too. With an elegant and a modern look, it will surely enhance the modern feel of the room. You can also add a rug under the table or some frames on the walls. You can be creative as you want. And if you are able to mix and match your dining room furniture and fixture, your dining room will surely look as modern as you'd like to be.
