Preparing your home for the holidays can be a lot of fun. There are so many fun and exotic accessories you can find to create the perfect glam dining room. It’s fun to go all out and create the perfect dining environment for your family and guests. To help you along with way, we have suggestions that can transform a normal dining area into a glamorous one of a kind room that will leave your friends and neighbors talking about it for years to come. Here are 10 essentials you need to complete your glam dining room.
1. Glamorous lighting fixtures
One of the essentials for creating a glam dining room is to install unique and glam lighting. The precise kind depends on the theme that you have going on in the room. If the space is large enough, consider installing a grand chandelier with multiple arms that are dripping with sparkly crystals that reflect the light. Crystal is an excellent choice for the glam aesthetic. Check out Wayfair’s collection to find the perfect style.
2. Dining Furniture
When you’re going for the glam look for your dining area choose furniture that has a high gloss finish. Depending on the theme of your room, we found a lovely example of formal dining in white at Overstock. Another excellent choice for modern glam is the Serenia Contemporary 7-piece satin metal dining set. Dark woods with a high gloss are also perfect choices for formal glam furnishings. The LIttus dining table features dark walnut wood with accents of sparkling gold.
3. Styling for the table
Glam dining tables need to be dressed up before any gala or casual dining event. Make sure that you select table accessories that are compatible with the overall theme of the room. Choose from candelabras of different heights. If you’re decorating on a budget, we recommend Wayfair (https://www.wayfair.com/decor-pillows/sb1/glam-candle-holders-c527310-a72058~285333.html), because of their huge selection of choices. Contrast the colors and shades using metallics or combinations of black and gold. Fresh flower vases, elegant table settings, and crystal glasses are also chic and glam.
4. Glam wall decor
The wall decor can enhance the appearance of any room and change it from one style to another. You can use wall decor to add an extra element of bling to the personality of the room. An example of this is the Devlan Wall Art 5 piece set featuring white marble pillars lavished with stylish gold trim. This is just to give you an idea of how you can easily add an extra glamorous touch through wall decor.
5. Use the stylish floor to ceiling curtains
Beautiful Homes (https://www.beautifulhomes.com/living/dining-room/top-10-essentials-for-a-glamorous-dining-room.html) recommends using formal curtains in your dining room that cover from floor to ceilings. Let the curtains make a fashion statement. It makes any room look higher by adding this treatment. Don’t be afraid to use expensive drapes in rich fabrics and tones.
6. Fashionable coffee table books
The experts at Beautiful Homes also recommend stacking some of your favorite books on the coffee table. This not only gives your guests something to read if the party is slow, it gives them a bit of insight into your favorite authors. It’s a classy and glam thing to do. Arrange them stylishly though.
7. Incorporate winged chairs
Winged chairs are elegant. If there is room in your dining area, throw in a set of well-matching winged chairs to add an extra ambiance of elegance and style. Choose colors that complement your glam theme when choosing among the various upholstery options.
8. . Accent Candles
Although we already covered candelabras, there are some amazing new candle fashions out there. They’re made specifically to complement glam dining rooms. You can find glam pillar candles with tons of different ornate designs molded into the wax. Look for candles that are sophisticated and stylish, and offer a bit of bling such as gold or silver designs.
9. Accent Rugs
We recommend using accent rugs on the floor. Even if you have beautiful high-polished wood floors, a few artistically crafted accent rugs or runners can add an extra touch of glam to any dining room. You can choose from a variety of modern or vintage styled accent rugs that add touches of black, gold, or any other sophisticated and glamourous tones to your dining area.
10. Gilding and mirrors
There is nothing more glamorous than a gilded mirror to complete the glam aesthetic in a dining area. It can transform a once dingy or lackluster space on the wall into a beautiful conversation piece. Choose at least one ornate and highly stylized gilded mirror to take the center stage in your dining area. The mirror will reflect the light and brighten up the room. It will also catch the diffused light from any crystal or gold sparkles and magnify their intensity. You don’t have to stop at just one gilded mirror either. You can use a larger one with complementary accent mirrors to create a spectacular effect. While you’re at it, why not choose tableware that is gilded with gold. There are some remarkable china sets, utensils, and crystal/drink glasses that feature gold gilding. We showed you one example of a gilded table already. Feel free to take creative license with gilded wall and table accessories. You can even add gilded draperies and curtain rods if the mood strikes you. This is just one more essential when planning your redecorating project to transform your dining room into a glamorous eating area that your guests will rave about for years to come.
