Laurent. Dining room. September 15th , 2017.
Bearing in mind your dining room is going to be primarily used for entertaining, it should be one of the most inviting areas of the home. All it takes are a few little tweaks to get your dining room up to scratch, whether it’s freshening it up with new upholstery or injecting some personality with a feature wall of framed photographs or prints.
Lighting is a key element too, so make the most of natural light where you can, framing a window or French doors with floor length curtains, which can also add a warming feel in the colder months. A decorative chandelier or statement pendant lights directly above the table create a wonderful focal point, but add a selection of candles and lamps to create a relaxing ambience for evening entertaining.
Recessed walls can be used to maximum effect in the modern dining room. Here the dining room multitasks as storage for music and books. A plant divider keeps the living and dining room space separate but socially connected. Great use of a mirror maximizes the sense of space in this Mediterranean dining room white the bench and chair combination playfully mixes the formal and casual.
Use colour in isolation, paint a single cabinet a strong shade to stand out and create a cool, stylish atmosphere. Let an impressive and sturdy dresser dominate the dining space in stormy grey. Choose rustic furniture in natural tones as a counterpoint to the intense paint colour. Hang a vintage chandelier for an air of luxury and keep the cabinet crockery pretty and co-ordinated with an all-white display.
