The dining room is designed to bring everyone together. So your dining furniture should work harmoniously to do just that!
We know that designing your own dining space can seem overwhelming. But, there are a few key ways that you can ensure that your scheme is well thought out. From the dining furniture to the lighting, artwork and more, below we detail how to make the most of your dining area.
It wouldn't be a dining room without a tremendous table! The hero pieces of the space, your dining furniture is what will complete the room. As such, you'll need to consider shape and size to see what will work in the room. Before investing in your dining table, think about how many people you'll want to seat, the size of your space and what shape would work best in it. A round table can be great for smaller spaces or open-plan rooms. Whereas, a large rectangular table is perfect for a dedicated dining space, leaving more room for setting the table with your favourite tableware.
Dining chairs are the statement pieces of dining furniture that will complete your scheme. Moreover, whether you like to mix and match your dining chairs or you prefer to purchase all one style, there is so much choice out there. So, once you have your dining table, make sure to measure to see which shapes and designs will fit best height and width wise. Additionally, let's not forget about comfort! A voluptuous velvet is great for soft seating. Alternatively, if you've opted for metal or wood, why not pair this with some quirky cushions, sheepskins or seat pads?! As such, this is also perfect for softening your scheme and creating a wonderfully welcoming space.
Not strictly dining furniture, lighting plays a big part in the look of your room. You could have a beautifully designed space but if the lighting isn't quite right, it can look lifeless or cold. For this reason, consider lighting your dining area using wall lights, side lamps and floor lamps. Aside from your main pendant light, these lighting options are key for setting the mood. As such, choosing a dazzling ceiling light will really transform the space. Perfect for lighting your dining table, hang a showstopping pendant low over your table to elevate the drama of the room!

We can't forget about the finishing touches, they are imperative to a welcoming dining area. So, if you have spare wall space, this is the perfect opportunity to inject personality into it! Use your empty walls to fill with amazing artwork that evokes feeling and is meaningful to your scheme. Moreover, if you have a windowsill, mantelpiece or sideboard, why not fill them with glorious adornments for added interest. Finally, don't forget your tableware such as quirky candlestick holders, statement vases and even a pretty pampas display! You will not regret it.
