Dining room ideas should be at the forefront of your home ideas, especially if you are a keen entertainer. Our elegant dining room decorating solutions and expert advice are here to inspire you, whether you’re designing a formal entertaining space or creating a distinct zone within an open-plan layout.
Formal dining room have gone by the wayside in many modern homes, deemed too stuffy and unsuitable for contemporary living. But having a dedicated room with a large table set up for the purpose of sharing a meal is a luxury. And if your home includes a dining room, it shouldn’t be treated an afterthought or decorated like a stage set that gets used for special occasions just a few times a year.
When decorating our dining rooms, many of us focus on the big-ticket items like tables and chairs. But, these aren’t the only must-haves worth considering. Dining room lighting are just as necessary and can make a significant difference in your space adding contrast, cohesion, or even a pop of show-stopping drama.
While the kitchen may be the heart of the home, a dining room, if you love to entertain, is a luxury. We often get requests from homeowners that have moved from a small house or apartment into one that has a dedicated dining area for entertaining friends and family. It’s a space that can feel unfamiliar, which makes it especially challenging to figure out where to start when decorating.
