Dining Room Inspiration
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or gathering around the table for a weeknight meal, the dining room is where people come together. From modern to traditional, it is the room in the house where you can let loose with colours and accessories to create that special, intimate atmosphere to be savoured by friends and family.
Designing Your Dining Room
Every dining room is different and the design will need to reflect the individual needs. Extendable tables for example are a great idea for smaller spaces, as they won’t take up lots of space when not in use.
In terms of style and materials, the world is your oyster. Glass top tables for example can help create an illusion of space and help showcase the construction of the table, making it a feature of the design.
Reclaimed wood furniture is a fabulous choice for giving your dining room an updated feel.
Reclaimed wood dining tables can be paired with benches for an modern feel, or match with an eclectic metal chairs for a more industrial feel.
Oak furniture is always a favourite for its amazing versatility, the beauty of the grain and its durability. Choose from traditional oak wood dining tables or go for a more modern style such as this solid oak table with brushed metal steel legs.
Chairs also help design an individual look and feel. Create a modern and industrial feel with contemporary metal dining chairs, reclaimed wood chairs, or keep a more traditional feel with leather and solid oak chairs.
To finish off your dining room, use wallpaper and curtains to add splashes of colour to the room.
Accessories for Your Dining Table
Furniture is not the only way to add style and atmosphere to your dining room. Clever accessories can help create the mood in the room whether it is on a daily basis or for a specific event.
Oversized candelabra’s or candleholders in general can become simple, sculptural centrepieces on the table. Or use a beautiful vase with a few simple flowers for a fresh and natural feel.
When serving dinner use fabulous bowls to showcase any sauces or sides for the meal. This fabulous bramble cheese board will make a great centrepiece to display bread or cheese for the meal.
Get into the spirit this holiday season and add some serious style to your entertaining.
