The idea of adding retro punch to your existing dining room is more about just changing a few elements within the space than a complete switch of styles. This means you can combine almost any other design style, including farmhouse, rustic, industrial or modern, with retro decor elements to get the best of both worlds. This allows you to retain a certain sense of control over the dining room where you can switch back to the original style as soon as your fascination for all things retro fades away. This is also a budget-friendly way to redecorate that lets your dining room blend in with the adjacent modern kitchen or living space far more seamlessly.
A contrasting approach is to add a smart navy blue or bright red hutch to a dining room that is draped in neutral hues. Since most dining room hutches can also be easily used in the kitchen or even in a shabby chic living room, you can always move it out when you want to alter the ambiance of the room. Distressed decor is making a huge comeback in 2016, with styles such as Bohemian and shabby chic allowing homeowners to embrace upcycled and rejuvenated furniture pieces. A lovely hutch with a distressed finish is a classic that never fails, and if you are willing to go down the route of a whitewashed hutch, then you can integrate it into even a contemporary and minimal dining room as well. If you cannot find a truly distressed china hutch, then give the modern piece that you own a custom distressed finish.
A bold backdrop is definitely a must for any room that wants to call itself `retro`, and with audacious wallpaper being one of the hot design trends of 2016, your super-cool and funky retro dining room will seem perfectly fashionable. Wallpaper not only brings color to the dining space, it also adds plenty of pattern to the room, and if you ever feel that it is all too much, then tuning out the retro vibe will be quite easy. When it comes to fabulous wallpapers for the dining room, there is absolutely no dearth of options, and this is also a fun way of demarcating space in the open plan living area.
