Glam Dining Room Design Ideas

Want to dine like a Hollywood star? Try dining in a glam style dining room! With chandeliers that dazzle, luxurious rugs, upholstered dining chairs, and so much more, you’re sure to create a showstopping dining room! A glam dining room design is ideal for those who want to create a very polished and upscale look in their dining room. They’re great spaces for entertaining, with their highly styled and considered approach. And, while glam dining rooms can be casual in layout, they tend to look more formal. This certainly isn’t the most kid-friendly style, however. The materials, color palette, and specific furniture you choose will help set the tone for what style of glam dining room you want to create. Going for Old Hollywood glam? Opt for a black and white color palette with pops of jewel tones. Want something more feminine and chic? Mix bright whites and pastels. Love the drama? It’s all about the jewel tones and animal prints.  But, whatever vibe you end up going for, there are a couple of glam dining room ideas that can guide you. In a glam dining room, you’ll most often see upholstered chairs, especially in velvet or leather. This helps establish that opulent, old-world glamour feel. But if you want something a bit more modern (or more kid-friendly) you could go for clear, acrylic chairs. Any of these chair styles would pair beautifully with a white, lacquer or marble tabletop. But you could also go a little more bold with a glass-top table with a geometric base, or go a little more classic with a light wood  table. In both dining chairs and tables, brass legs are always a welcomed glamorous addition.  Two other pieces of furniture that are perfect for a glam dining room layout? A cabinet—ideally in a high-gloss or textured white, or a light wood or metal finish—and a sophisticated bar cart. Opt for bar carts with brass frames or gold finishes, with glass or mirrored shelves. This adds a perfect touch of vintage glam to your space, and is the perfect surface for crystal decanters and glassware. A cabinet also provides the perfect surface for decor that helps really drive home the glam style, like metal and glass trays, glamorous table lamps for layered lighting, pops of florals or greenery, and other decorative sculptures and objects. Basically, anything that adds extra decadence to the space! Aside from furniture and tabletop decor, a glam dining room design demands a blingy or shiny chandelier and a luxurious rug. A chandelier is the perfect place to add a big dose of drama and style to your glam dining room, and a rug with rich colors or a bold pattern will give an extra pop of opulence to your space. And don’t forget about some statement art or oversized mirrors with stunning frames! Ready to get your glam dining room design started? Or just want some layout or furniture ideas?
