Keep reading for a few design ideas to perfect your dining space, whether it’s a large grand room, a shared lounge dining space, or just an intimate dining nook in the corner of your kitchen…
Start from the ground up
If you really want to transform a space, segment a particular area, or set a new and more comfortable tone, then you really ought to start with a luxurious, eye-catching rug! Shifting what’s going on underneath your dining set creates an entirely different aesthetic and feel for the room or area, so it’s well worth investing in a rug that you really love.
You can also easily switch a rug out for different seasons so it’s a fun one to play around with if you have the luxury to do so. Look for something that’s not going to wear and tear too obviously – plain white beneath children at a dining table is a pretty risky choice, after all.
Stick to patterns and intricate details in rich colors or choose a darker block rug for those who prefer a more minimal look.
Create a color scheme
Next, color contemplations. All professionally designed homes will look the way that they do because there is a general theme of cohesion running through, a thoughtfulness that ties everything in the house together even if it’s not necessarily obvious when you’re in there.
A great way of creating this effect for yourself is by curating a refined and applicable color scheme. If you’re only vamping up your dining area, you’re going to want to pull at least one or two tones from other rooms or themes running throughout your home.
You can then add a pop tone or unexpected color to define the space. Maybe you’re starting from scratch? Lucky you, you can pick everything fresh! Just be sure to use base neutrals and only one or two eye-catching colors to avoid the space looking gauche.
Keep your centerpieces neutral
Speaking of neutrals! Be sure to invest in gorgeous yet neutral centerpiece furniture to ensure that you’re securing timeless pieces that will stay with you for the long haul.
Look for reclaimed timber furniture, a wood dining set is an ideal backdrop for all of your styling ideas!
Layering lighting helps to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere that makes the home feel like home. Choose whether you’d like to create a warm or fresh lighting scene. Warm tones create an intimate cozy atmosphere whilst the fresher, cooler tones will brighten darker spaces and bring some energy to even the smallest of dining areas.
Layer lamps, candles, and small lighting accents for a beautiful and timelessly elegant dining space.
Add artistic elements
Add artistic accents to your walls to transform your dining space and make it even more of a focal point for your home. Choose pieces that you and your family love for a personal and creative addition to your dining area.
