The tropical dining room is generally filled with color and effervescence and is a far cry from the more traditional and formal dining rooms that seem all too serious. There is a certain understated ‘playfulness‘ here that you simply cannot miss. Of course, the bright and bold patterns and splattering of green add to the richness of the setting as well. So, why not move away from the mundane and give the tropical dining room a shot?

Decor with Personality Reclaimed barn wood need not always be relegated to the walls alone, and you can give it a more practical and prominent role in the dining room by using it to craft a custom dining table or chairs. These additions obviously seem more at home in rustic and farmhouse-style dining spaces, but they can also add an interesting twist to your modern dining room. If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
