Party season is upon us. Spring is almost here and then it’s summer and all the festivities begin. With more of us vaccinated, it will be possible for you to wine and dine with your friends once again, in the comfort of your own home. One room we don’t always spend a lot of time on decorating is our dining room. That is mainly because it is the room we use least. Many families enjoy their meals in the kitchen, in front of the TV or even in their rooms or studies.
Round, Curvy and Oval Tables
Don’t be a square. Choosing round or oval tables look great and add a touch of class to your dining room. Curved tables can also be designed per request giving your dining room a sensual appeal. Round or oval tables have made a comeback and can easily seat 6- 12 people comfortably – depending on the size.
Nothing beats a cool diner feel in your dining area. Designing your space with a banquette, or booth seats as some may refer to them, offers a lot of range for creativity to play with materials and textures. This will be a custom design and you will have to approach an interior designer to get it designed and made unless your DIY skills are excellent! From cosy nooks to banquettes that extend from kitchens into dining spaces, they are stylish and a sure way to keep your guests comfortable.
Totally cool. While some interior decorators and designers have played with the idea of non-matching chairs in the dining area, some are also calling for big, bold host chairs. Keeping two seats with an extra added flair is a stylish way to give your dining space the cool factor it deserves.
Linear and elongated chandeliers are chic and easily provide light for the full length of a rectangle table. Dimmers are a must around the dinner table for you to light a few candles and get the dinner party ambience just right.
Your silver cutlery and porcelain plates need to go somewhere. Sideboards are usually sold with dining sets and are a storage place for all your dining decorations and utensils. From decorating to designing your sideboard, you need to think about how functional it will be in the space provided.
