Create a gallery corner in the living room 

Fill up those lonesome corners with your favourite artworks. It’ll render a gallery-inspired look to serve as an artful extension to your main living or dining area. Definitely better than a cold and bare corner.

Update your dining zone with carefully mixed and matched chairs

You don’t need to throw out your entire dining set for a change of scene; just replacing a few chairs will do. By bringing new seats into the picture, you put together a fun and fresh dining set; somewhat like playing musical chairs during dinner.

Prop up some cushions 

New cushions are the easiest and a fool proof way to spike the interest level on your couch. Look at how these pretty cushions add a punchof colour to an otherwise dull neutral-coloured sofa.

Paint a wall to refresh your space 

A relatively quick and effortless way to transform your dining space is to change its wall colour. A vibrant colour can add depth to a space if the feature wall is further decorated with paintings or photographs. We especially love the use of bright hues, like the Nippon Paint Odour-less Premium all-in-one in Zing (8117).

Keep things organised while segregating commucal zones with a chic divider 

With its symmetrical forms, this see-through, open shelving establishes a stylish order of streamlined aesthetics. This chic storage divider allows light and air to pass through and this works well to define the living and dining zones in a space-starved area.
