Our top Dining Room Ideas to make your room the best it can be…
The dining room can be known as the heart of the house. It’s the place for meals with the family, dinner parties with friends and romantic meals with your other half. What was once seen as a stuffy room purely for entertaining guests in a more formal setting is now seen as a warm, friendly and comfortable space to dine. Here are our top tips and top dining room inspiration to give your room a revamp…
Add interesting lighting
While a main feature of dining rooms used to be a glittering chandelier, modern updates have seen them replaced with unique lighting fixtures. Not only can this be chosen to match your decor style but can be a great starting point for dinner party conversations! We love the chic design of this dining room from www.houseology.com As far as dining room inspiration goes, this is one of our favourite tips!
Make it feel part of the home
Make your dining room an extension of your living area for a laid-back vibe. Imbue the area with family photos and a cosy grey and wood colour scheme. A dining room doesn’t need to be a totally separate space, you can add it into your lounge for a warm space to relax with the family. We love this table from Vox at Cuckooland.com – not only does it have a unique opening in the middle for popping flowers or bottles of wine it also has metal covers for hot pots and pans and drawers to store your cutlery and mats perfect for stowing away your dinner items during the day.
Keep it minimalist
Sometimes simple really is best. Keep the clutter away and instead make a statement with a vase or interesting ornament. This dining table from Michael Murphy is a sleek and stylish addition, the glass top further adding to the non-cluttered and spacious feel. This look is perfect for smaller spaces or those with a vibrant decor.
Add a glam touch
For those who want to add a touch of glamour to their dining room without it seeming gaudy, tacky or a room only allowed to be used on very special occasions, try accenting it with a few glamorous accents. These Louis silver dining chairs from Housing Units are made with chrome legs and a crushed silver velvet fabric with a door knocker on the back of each chair. You could also invest in other silver accessories for the room to keep a streamlined look.
Keep a streamlined colour scheme
For a dining room that is sleek and stylish, keep to a minimalist colour scheme that operates throughout. If you’re looking for something sophisticated and sleek, why not opt for a colour palette of greys, whites and blacks? This dining set from Furniture Village looks great with black accessories or can be jazzed up with something in a bright colour.
