Create a main gathering place to break bread and chat about the day’s adventures. Steal our favorite ideas for designing dining rooms that are made to share with family and friends.
1. Opt for a Balanced Style
Modernize your dining room with industrial-style lighting. Balance your sleek look by mixing natural furniture, such as pressed wooden tables and rattan chairs. A black-and-white photo hung in gallery style adds a personal touch to the room.
2. Enchanted Setting
For instant focus points, cover one wall on the wallpaper. Beautiful wallpapers of flora and fauna bring an epic sense of imagination and romance to this dining room. Chairs with elegant details, such as tassels and nail decorations, pull the hue from the wall to create a cohesive color palette.
3. Punctuated With Pattern
Try two different fabrics on the same chair for a completely unique touch. These fine chairs face directly to the countryside, which has a leather upholstered chair that is compressed and a back covered with soft cloth. Flower curtains soften the bay window and bring comfort to the room, which has an exotic dose of beaded turquoise lamps.
4. Two-in-One Design
Embrace the flexibility of slipcover. An adjustable white slipcover creates a casual beach feel in this dining room when paired with a farmhouse table and an industry-inspired trio of pendants. When a more sophisticated look is needed (or you’re just ready to change it), the linen sarong is removed to reveal a gray tufted chair that has a more formal formal feel.
5. Light and Warm
For a more intimate arrangement, choose a round table instead of oval or rectangular options. This round table centralizes the dining room and is large enough to accommodate eight people. A sleek white application, from walls to chairs and beaded chandeliers, keeps the use of rich stained wood so it doesn’t feel too dark.
6. Intimate Gathering
A dining place curled up to a fireplace on a cold night sounds like heaven to us. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with natural light during the day, then turn into a comfortable retreat for sharing food. Wicker chairs add a touch of appeal to the smooth wood and metal tables, flanked by comfortable linen armchairs.
7. A Case of the Blues
The dining room is the ideal space to lean on elegance. Curved walls, arches, and painted ceilings make the atmosphere of this magnificent room where a large crystal chandelier is a sparkling focal point.
8. Relaxed and Rustic
Divide your dining room with a rug area that completes the look. In this open dining room, muted bricks, warm wood tones, and matte black combine for a new yet fresh feel. Blue-white woven carpets add the right colors and patterns to inject space with activity and movement.
9. Room for More
A perfect bench to accommodate more people. Whether you have a bigger family or your children constantly have friends, choosing a bench over a chair means that everyone always has a chair. The only thing we cannot promise is whether they fight over who will sit in the leather captain’s chair in this tone-to-tone dining room.
10. A Note of Grandeur
This dining room proves that it’s okay to be a little moody. Navy grass cloth above the emblem adds depth to the texture offset by the soft gray palette found on zig-zag tables and chairs. Ready to fill the room with additional drama is an exaggerated candle-style chandelier.
