Updating your dining room is one way to to offer your home an added dimension. As the room that's only used for family get-to-gethers or dinner parties amongst friends, the dining room tends to get a bad wrap. Through improvements to make the space less stuffy, you may find you and your loved ones embracing time spent here, rather than hiding from it.

HGTV highlights simple DIY projects than can easily transform your dining room from fancy to fun and fabulous. One way to bring your look up-to-date is by reupholstering your old chair cushions. Choose a pattern that will work well over the years, yet still has enough style to draw attention. If you're going for a dramatic look, work with your window treatments as a way to capitalize on the design. Go for shades or blinds in a luxurious and rich fabric to emphasis the overall look.

Change the color of the walls and consider purchasing a signature piece - an antique server or a refurbished china cabinet as a way to set your room apart. Through these easy steps, your friends will be begging you to host more dinner parties!
