Are you looking to spice up your home decor without breaking the bank? We believe with a little imagination, and style tips from us of course, your perfect space is closer than you think! Our first tip: keep your current pieces, while adding some new colors and styles to change things up! Mixing and matching furniture sets can be daunting, but with this guide we hope that you will make all of your unique dining room dreams come true!  

Bend the Dining Rules

We think there’s a rhyme and reason for everything, even matching furniture sets! But we also believe there’s a time and place to bend the rules. Why not break out of your furniture rut by mixing and matching furniture sets? Pieces are sold separately, so you can do just that! Try grabbing a dining room table from one collection, chairs from another, and maybe even a cute bench from a third. Mix it all together (tastefully of course) and we’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the result!

Think Outside the Box

It’s important to break away from traditional thinking and styling when deciding on the perfect mix and match dining set! Think about the colors, textures and patterns in each room of your house. Do they match? Are they cohesive? Most of the time, the answer to this question is no, and that’s okay! A visually pleasing and interesting space is all about surprising the viewer, without overwhelming them!

Keep the Color Palette Going

Mixing and matching your dining set is a great way to pull in tones and textures from other rooms, to help tie your dining room into your home seamlessly! Let’s take this example, you have a blue-toned couch and want to make this an accent color throughout the rest of your home, but everything else is beige and white..hmm what can we do? Why not add these Mestler dining room chairs to bring a pop of color into your dining room while tying everything together? 

Why Stick to One Style?

Mixing and matching has a lot to do with colors, textures and patterns, but it also has a lot to do with style. And why should your space be confined to one style when yours is constantly evolving? No matter your style, we think your space should represent you and your ever-changing tastes and preferences! Mixing styles from farmhouse to boho to modern can be overwhelming, but check out the dining room in this photo! We are loving the rustic solid wood table, paired with these antique upholstered chairs, and you could even try some more modern chairs at each head of the table. And check out how that lighting fixture brings a touch of modern style into the space as well, bravo!

Dining Room Star

We feel that now more than ever, your dining room is so important. It can be where families come together to enjoy a meal, have game night, or catch up on the week! We want to help you make your dining room mix-and-match perfect, and the star of the show!
