Dining Rooms: Create A Space You Can’t Wait to Dine In

The dining room is a communal space in the home – a room filled with family conversations, good times and great meals shared together with your loved ones. Here we share some design inspiration to elevate your dining room and create the perfect space for dining in style.

The Table

Start with a statement dining table. Solid wood is a classic and a great way to create an inviting family dining room. Glass, metal and painted wood are also great options for the dining table. Whether round, square or rectangle, choose a table shape and size to suit your room and the size of your family. Add matching chairs for a more traditional look or go eclectic with a mix of chairs to add some spunk to your dining space.


A simple way to jazz up your dining room is with a splash of paint on the walls. White is minimalist and beautiful but perhaps you want to create a beautiful feature wall in a shade of your choice. Keep the frame neutral and add hints of colourful accents which you can change with the seasons. Think drapes, table linens, artwork and even rugs in bold colours and prints.


The right light can totally transform your dining room. Whether a vintage chandelier or a modern pendant, your choice of lighting should complement your layout and work as a focal point above the dining room table. We love gorgeous metal lighting installations or customised glass globes for that wow factor in the dining room!

Freshness and Greenery

Add florals and blooms to your dining room for a touch of fresh appeal in this space. Think vased flowers, potted plants and more. You can even use floral prints and patterns in soft furnishings to bring in this ‘edeneque’ trend in the dining room. Greenery evokes a sense of calm and nature-inspired freshness to any space.


A great way to personalise and spruce up your dining area is with artwork. Think beautiful prints and abstract canvases that you can showcase on the walls in your dining room. This is a wonderful way to add personality to your space and infuse your dining room with bold colours and prints that you love.
