Your dining room can be used in a multitude of ways and the space remains a great addition to a house – however big or small your dining room may be. Design your dining room well and it will become the hub of your home, and not just a dumping ground for ‘stuffocation’ sufferers or a messy desk area for life admin and homework.
What makes the perfect dining room? - Before getting down to the finer details such as furniture style and wall colour, it’s essential to plan your dining room for its purpose before you personalise it. For ease of access for both you and your guests, your dining room should be easily reached from both your living room and kitchen.
Dining room décor: what to think about - This is where you can really showcase your style and taste. Rich reds and dark wood is a great combination if you want a traditional English dining room. For those lucky enough to have a large dining room, a traditional theme of bold colours and rich patterns is a great way to add a sense of grandeur to your walls. However, it can be easy to get carried away and while a dramatic dining room can look great, you don’t want to overwhelm your guests. For this reason, it can be best to stick to a few standout elements, such as wallpaper, curtains, tablecloths and chair covers to add your personal style to your dining room.
Another good starting point is to think about the number of people you are likely to entertain at any one time. You might not be able to change the room size, but there are ways of adapting the space to cater for the number of guests, such as using extendable tables and fold up chairs. If you like to serve food inside the dining room, then buffet tables and sideboards with the addition of a hot plate are a great idea.
If you’re striving to achieve a calm and modern dining environment, intricate patterns in neutral shades won’t go a miss. Replace traditional dark walls with patterned wallpaper or uplifting colours in neutral shades. Contemporary bookcases and floor to ceiling shelving can look great when stacked with books and quirky objects.
