Long gone are the days where the dining room was used only on Sundays and special holidays. More and more dining rooms are being utilised more frequently and incorporated into everyday life.
Due to this, there’s now more need than ever to create a luxurious dining room suitable for a feast – and sure to impress!
Here’s our top picks for the best things to include to create a dining room that will definitely wow.
Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but plush and cushioned chairs look more elegant and regal if this is the look you want for your dining room too.
If you’re the type of person who can never settle, many plush and cushioned dining room chairs come with removable covers, so you can change the colour or fabric on yours at your will – this is great for wowing guests who don’t come over for dinner too often – they’ll feel like they’re in a completely new room every time they come and visit! It’s also helpful for dealing with spills, and damage.
A chair like this has a perfect padded back and seat, providing the ultimate comfort and support for you and your guests.
Having a dresser top that acts as a display cabinet is a great way to showcase some of your best art, photos or trinkets.
A glass dresser top like this has plenty of viewing space to show off your best crockery, or impress people with some of your best photo memories of you and your family.
Not only does this provide some excellent storage that saves floor space, it also gives you the option to display some of your more precious belongings and installing extras like specialist lighting can take this to another level and really stun your guests!
Whilst we’re on the topic of lighting, installing some impressive light features in your dining room will not only create a fantastic atmosphere, but make your food look even more delicious.
Depending on the atmosphere you’re going for, different lighting could really enhance your dining space:
- Chandeliers – perfect for larger rooms with high ceilings, chandeliers can look incredibly elegant and envelop a room with light. Perfect for evoking a more traditional feel.
- Floor/stand lamps – in a more modern setting, floor lamps can really help make the most of your space. Often designed in more funky colours and shapes, they can provide lighting at many different heights and slot into the corners of rooms, saving you vital space.
- Ceiling lights – if you’re blessed with low ceilings, ceiling lights installed directly into the top of your room can really help. You won’t be fighting for space with low hanging lamps all the time and spacing these out on the ceiling can bring a lot of light into the whole room, making the overall space look bigger.
Extendable tables like this one can not only help you make the most of your space, but it’s always impressive to watch a room transform!
The greatest element of these tables is that you’re able to cater for such a wide variety of occasions as you can adjust the size of your table, and this in itself is incredibly impressive!
This might sound odd, but having plainer coloured walls allows you to really go the extra mile with your décor.
Intriguing pieces of art and trinkets throughout your dining room are sure to prompt more questions and pique the interest of more guests than a coloured wall.
