5 Easy Ways To Update Your Country Style Dining Room

Did you know you can completely overhaul the aesthetic of your home without breaking the bank? By making just a few simple changes, you can update any room in your house and it doesn’t need to cost thousands of pounds. Let’s start in your dining room with some small tweaks to revitalise the space.


With centrepieces you can be as bold or as simplistic as you like. For an easy centrepiece with a rustic vibe, take three mason jars, fill them with flowers and place them in the middle of your table. Done. It’s as simple as that.

To make your table look fancier, add a table runner in a soft lace or hessian fabric for a subtle country style vibe. If you are feeling adventurous, go for a bolder pattern in brighter colours to make a statement on your table.

Finish the look with a wicker fruit basket in the centre of the table. If you don’t want to keep your fruit there, fill it with balls of moss or dried flowers for a decorative alternative.

Flowers and Plants

Whether you want statement flowers in the middle of your table or colourful bunches dotted all around, flowers can really help in lifting the vibe of your dining room. Plants also work well in the same way and you can cover plant pots with hessian if you want to keep things natural, or invest in a colourful planter to add more colour into the space.

Place Settings

Add charger plates to the table setting to instantly elevate the mood of your table. Whether you are simply eating lunch or throwing a dinner party, with chic charger plates you will want to be sitting at your dining table.

Decorative charger plates can make bold statements or you can keep things simple depending on what you want. Mismatched charger plates can be a playful take on the look or match them to your crockery to create a sleeker vibe.


Look past your table, to your dining room walls and add a statement piece of art for a glamorous touch. Alternatively, a photo gallery wall will create a more family friendly ambience. For a really bold look, try some large ornaments such as an Oriental Fan or a set of wall baskets.

You could also look to change your light fixtures for a striking update. If they are currently dated or even damaged it is time to replace them. Space permitting, why not consider a grand chandelier to add a sparkle to your dining room, as modern or traditional as you please?

Serving Dishes

If you would love to go all out with a farmhouse aesthetic, add wicker serving baskets to your dining table to complete the rustic look. You could even use your serving dishes as your centrepiece. Paired with a chic charger plate, your table will exude elegance without appearing too cluttered.
