Therefore, it makes sense to devote a lot of attention to designing your dining room, which includes several important choices ranging from the table to the homeware. If you are stuck in a limbo with no ideas, here are a few you can steal from us.

Take it to the country

Country dining rooms are irresistibly warm and inviting, and there is no one who wouldn’t enjoy this old-school setting while having dinner, so let’s help you with some suggestions.

Table: In this case, you should go with a deeper shade of wood and more massive pieces of furniture. You can also use reclaimed wood.

Chairs: Create a contrast with white chairs or combine different styles including carved wood and simple designs. You can also use upholstered pieces with rustic design. Everything is allowed.

Lighting: One fixture above the table is enough no matter whether it’s an old lantern or a candle-style chandelier.

Homeware: Bring in that authentic farmhouse style by introducing checkered or polka dots homeware.

Go Scandi

Scandinavian décor is one of the top movements in interior design today. It is popular because of its impeccable stylishness and minimalistic approach. It is also a perfect style to borrow a few ideas from when it comes to designing a dining room.

Table: Pale wood is the signature mark of Scandinavian design, but you can also get by with matte black or white table.

Chairs: Simple wood chairs are enough, but you can get a more modern look with classic Eames white chairs.

Lighting: Three symmetrically placed pendant lamps are what you’re looking for. Depending on your preference, they can be white, matte black, pastel, metallic or mixed up.

Homeware: Unique and classy Glenn Tebble Homewares will perfectly reflect the simplicity and nature-loving approach of this Nordic design.

Thirst for Mediterranean

Mediterranean people love entertainment, and they love to host big dinners for their families, relatives, friends and neighbors, so it’s no wonder we turn to them for inspiration.

Table: Massive solid wood table in dark shades will do fine, but if you want to go all the way, hand-carved wood should be your choice.

Chairs: Mediterranean people love to enjoy themselves, so comfort is the first thing you should think about when choosing the chairs. Wooden chairs with rich patterns on the upholstery will break the monotony of dark wood, and they are perfectly cozy as well.

Lighting: It’s time to go big. Choose large, conspicuous, crystal chandeliers that emit warm light.

Homeware: Here, you can’t go wrong with mixed colors and rich patterns.

Luxury is timeless

Perhaps you don’t like modern designs in the dining room. Perhaps you are not so fond of mixed colors and patterns. Perhaps you just want to sit and enjoy your elegant and timeless dining room. And that’s ok. Here’s how to do it.

Table: Go for a classic dining room table with clean lines and shiny finish. Deep wood shades always work better if you want to create a timeless feel.

Chairs: Plush dining chairs will give you the elegance you need with extra comfort. Choose a neutral color or some easy-on-the-eyes shade, such as dark blue.

Lighting: A crystal chandelier or a candle-style fixture will never go out of style, so you can use either and your dining room will be resistant to any changes in trends.

Homeware: Jewel tones and metallic (bras, gold, copper…) items are the details you need in order to complete this formal dining space.
