Dining room makeover in a weekend
Spend two days ridding your dining room of clutter and reinstate its proper function as a welcoming space for family meals, dinner guests or an intimate candlelit supper for two.

Colour scheme

Choose a simple, timeless colour scheme of tone-on-tone whites and pale greys, warmed up with classic wooden dining furniture.

Picture perfect

Put some fun into your makeover session by creating a family photo gallery. Paint frames in various shades of white then fill with your best black-and-white prints (or cheat and photocopy colour ones).

Window dressing

Hang translucent blinds that let the light flood in. Soft white blinds are ideal light diffusers.
