Non-Traditional Dining Rooms

din header1 greencouch com

Break away from the traditional dining room! A traditional design is lovely in a suburban ranch house, but completely out-of-place in urban city apartments and townhomes.

When purchasing dining room furnishings, stay away from sets. Matching sets lack individual personality and are synonymous with traditional design. Instead search out a unique dining table and chairs that don’t necessarily match to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Enjoy these dining room decorating tips to inspire your dining room transformation:
