Looking to remodel your mobile home dining room this fall? There’s a few things you should think about before you put time and money into a remodel, like space, lighting, creating a plan, and deciding how big of a remodel you’re willing to do. Hopefully, we’ll be able to address a few of these for you today to help with your own remodel. If you’re just here out of curiosity, there’s still plenty you can learn!
How far do you want to go with your remodel?
First of all, think about how far you want to go with your dining room remodel. Are you just going for a new color scheme, or are you looking to replace just the furniture and leave the color scheme the same? Or are you doing a complete revamp of the room? Obviously, depending on how far you want to take your remodel, you’ll need to invest different levels of time and money into your new design.
Take the size of the room into account
The size of your dining room is another important factor. If you’re planning to replace your current dining table, don’t purchase a new table until you’ve measured both the room and the table you have in mind. Additionally, you should think about how much space you’d like to have left in the dining room after bringing in a new table. After you’ve placed chairs around your new table, you still want to have enough space to walk around.
Take the shape of the room into account
The shape of your dining room matters as well. Not every room has the perfect shape for a round dining table. Likewise, not every room can accommodate a rectangular table. Think about what type of furniture will work best with the shape of your dining room as well as its size.
Look at the lighting
Chances are, you want to keep or create good lighting in your dining room. So, before beginning a remodel, it’s a good idea to keep your lighting situation in mind. Try to make sure you aren’t blocking any light sources with large furniture or decor items. If you need more lighting, think about adding a lamp to an out-of-the-way corner of your dining room. One way or another, the idea is to improve the lighting situation in this important room rather than making it worse.
Plan out a style and bring it together
Industrial, rustic farmhouse, minimalist, contemporary – there are so many different trends out there, and it’s completely up to you which one to choose for your home. Having so many choices can be stressful, so it’s a good idea to pick out the one you like best and then plan it out. Think about an appropriate color scheme for the style you’ve chosen. Then plan out the types of furniture you want in your dining room according to how much space you have. Finally, choose decor that highlights your color scheme and design!
Choose a color scheme that’s fun and refreshing
Choosing a color scheme that’s both fun and refreshing is a great way to give your dining room a new look, even if you aren’t planning to replace anything else. Your family members and friends are sure to appreciate the fresh, new feeling of a new color theme while you share meals and conversations around the dining table!
Think about how many people you’ll typically host
Obviously, it’s a good idea to think about how many people you’ll typically host in your dining room. For example, if you have a big family, you’ll probably need to invest in a large dining table and plenty of chairs. If it’s just you and a significant other, a small table with two to four chairs should work. However, if you have friends over often, or if you’re the family member who hosts Thanksgiving dinner every year, you might need to think about a larger dining table, or at least an expandable one. Additionally, think about purchasing some chairs that can surround your table when needed and easily go into storage when you’re done using them for a while.
Start your remodel whenever you like!
With all that said, there’s no reason to let anything hold you back from starting your remodel! Yes, it’s a good idea to plan out different parts of your remodel, but don’t get stuck in this planning stage. If you’re worried about starting because you think you haven’t planned enough, don’t be. After all, just getting started on something is half the battle – so don’t get stuck in a cycle of uncertainty. Just keep chipping away at the big plans you have for your dining room!
