Dining Room Design Tips from Superstar Designer Bobby Berk

Bobby Berk, interior designer and co-star of Netflix’s Queer Eye, is the master of transforming a space. Who better to resort to for dining room inspiration? If you want to bring some of that transformation into your own dining room, check out these design tips from Bobby Berk.

1) Stick with neutrals

Bright colors and prints can really set the mood of a space, but getting back to basics is anything but boring. So when it comes to picking out your dining room furniture, opting for neutrals is the smart way to go.

One of the most tried design tips is to stick with neutral pieces that you can build your decor around. This enables you to keep the expensive pieces for a long time, and change up everything else when you want to refresh your dining room design.

2) Wake up your walls with art

Berk reminds us that one of the best ways to freshen up a dining room is to turn to our walls. He recommends using a notable piece of accent art or a textured accent wall. By simply propping up a piece in the right place it can bring the look of your modern dining room into another dimension. Design, in its truest form, is a physical expression of a person’s personality and wall art can enhance an aesthetic and add a personalized touch to a home like no other.

3) Statement lighting

Another way to elevate your dining room design is to use contemporary lighting to complement your modern dining table. A bold light fixture sets the mood for entertaining and has the potential of becoming the center piece of your modern dining room.
