Dining room delights Posted On 29 July 2020

It’s not the worst problem to have, but having a redundant dining room can feel like a wasted space in any home. With the potential saving from your Stamp Duty Holiday, let’s have a look at some great design options.

 

Top Tips

  1. Allow comfortable seating for your guests and family. Choose chairs that are comfy enough to sit on for a good few hours whilst you wine and dine.
  2. Create an intimate atmosphere. This doesn’t mean it has to be dark and gloomy: fill the room with light and position furniture so that everyone can interact and see one another.
  3. Bring the outside in by placing flowers or plants on the window sill. Not only will this create a lovely smell but it also brings colour and life to the room.
  4. Finish off with quirky features and add a unique element to your finishing touches. Try different china plates in similar colours to give a contemporary twist, or add a unique candle holder for a modern focal point.

Traditional Framed Mirror

If you have a small space for your dining room then employ mirrors to create a magical effect. Not only does this visually extend the feel of a dining room, but it can also amplify natural light to turn a dark room into a bright, soft space. This classic framed mirror would be perfectly placed above a side table to create ample light. The wooden frame can be finished in either gold, silver or white and comes in different sizes.
