An informal dining room allows you and your guests to eat comfortably. An informal dining room is a dining area that is intentionally kept casual by the homeowners. Often the formality of a dining room will prevent the room from being used for casual daily activities. Some homeowners don’t want to feel like the dining room can only be used for special occasions. To soften up the space and make it more useful, change the style of the room by adding more relaxed furniture and accessories. For instance, you can use a variety of funky colors, intriguing patterns, and relaxed elements. The walls are a great place to relax the décor of this space. There you can use interesting wall paper, or use stencils to create murals, and add a personal touch to the space. The walls are also a great place to hang portraits, or paintings, which will help round out the tone of the entire room.
