A dining room is an area in the house where people gather, enjoy good food, and often celebrate very special and intimate occasions. Considering all of this, your dining room is an opportunity to create a space that’s a bit more formal or buttoned up than other rooms in your home. But don’t think I mean stuffy or uncomfortable — think tailored, elegant, and unique.
Starting with finishes, it’s always a good idea to consider finishing your walls in a wall covering of some kind, or in a decorative finish such as paint or plaster — plus, it makes for a great backdrop for layering mirrors and artwork. For instance, you could try a vertical striped pattern on the walls. This will immediately add a sense of height and interest to your space.
Secondly, find a dining table and lighting source that complement each other. Third, consider a statement dining chair that’s uniquely different from a regular chair style. Something quirky and cool — yet still comfortable — will add an impressive level of flair and thoughtfulness to your room. Once you have those things in place, it’s easy to build upon with accessories and other furniture, like a credenza.
Designing a dining room is a chance to create a space that’s unique in design yet still very functional. Here, we’ve curated a number of items that will help create your special version of a timeless dining setting.
