Dining rooms have seen some of the most extreme changes in trends over the years. It has always been one of the most traditional rooms in a house and in the past decade or so has seen an explosion in modernity.

Dining room trends are constantly changing. From a traditional, dark space, dining rooms are now one of the most customizable and flexible rooms in the house for design. We've written about modern dining room trends and furniture before at sohoConcept. These are always changing and provide a great opportunity in your home for experimenting with new design.

If you're looking for some ideas for updating your dining room, get some inspiration with sohoConcept's 6 new ideas for modern dining room.

Modernize Your Dining Room

Large Lighting Fixtures
Everyone remembers the large chandelier in their grandparents' dining room – ornate, beautiful, and extremely old fashioned. While crystal chandeliers are definitely luxurious and can be modern, most dining room trends are shifting to two or three large lighting fixtures over the table.

Low hanging lamps, circular lights, and industrial light bulb arrangements are examples of popular lighting fixtures for modern dining rooms. Using unique fixtures, not just chandeliers, can help create a focal point for your table arrangement and settings.

Mismatched Chairs
Mismatched dining chairs is a furniture trend that we love at sohoConcept. While having a uniform dining set is appropriate in many homes or restaurants, mixing up chairs and having some unique pieces can tell a fantastic story about your home and your design.

Using differently shaped chairs with different upholstery creates an ad hoc design, but when done properly, has a feeling of planning and care. You can even mix metal and wooden frames if you're feeling bold – but this may take some arranging to get right!

Many kitchens and dining rooms with large tables are using benches instead of dining chairs as seating. A long wooden bench, or upholstered bench, creates a feeling of togetherness and takes away some of the formalities of a traditional dining room.

If you have a large family or host dinners regularly, a bench can make for easy seating and can even be repurposed as an entryway bench or seating in a living room when you're not using it in the dining room.

Natural Light
Traditional dining rooms often have dim lighting and dark furniture to keep them feeling formal. A modern dining room should avoid this and instead use natural light to its full potential.

Big windows that let natural light in are ideal for a modern dining room, but your dining room may not have these and you aren't in the market for a renovation. Using bright lightbulbs in lighting fixtures that mimic natural light can help make your dining room appear brighter and more natural. Using mirrors can also help to take advantage of any natural light that does come in.

Large Art
A recent dining room trend is to have a feature wall with a large art piece on it. Instead of painting a wall in an accent colour, find a piece of art you love that takes up a lot of space.

This can also help you choose colours and decor as you can pick out a variety of shades from the art and use them in your dining room. This helps make a cohesive design and if it includes lots of bright colours, will be very modern!

That brings us to our next point about colour. Traditional dining rooms were full of mahogany, dark wood, dark carpets, and deep shades on the walls. Using white and colourful upholstery, furniture, and decor is a clear mark of a modern dining room.

This trend is one of our favourites at sohoConcept because we love bright dining room chairs and materials! Using some mismatched, multicoloured dining chairs will definitely create a modern look for your room and impress your guests.
