Dining room ideas to make your house a home 

The dining room. It’s the home’s heartbeat, a hive of activity where memories are made.

But whether we’re sharing a meal, having a natter, or helping with the kids’ homework, the right dining set is crucial.

But we know; it can be tricky to find the ideal dining table and chairs to fit your needs!

So, using the dining table as our centrepiece, we’ve collated our best dining room ideas and expert advice to help make your house a home.  

Without further ado, here’s our one-stop-shop for dining room inspiration, décor, furniture, and accessories.   

Measure your dining room

Start by measuring the space you’re working with, as this clarifies your dining set options and prevents any costly mistakes with ill-fitting furniture.

If you have room for cookware or kitchen bits like crockery, cutlery and table décor, consider complementary furniture to keep everything cohesive.

What furniture should I put in the dining room?

Your lifestyle is crucial when choosing a dining set. Do you work from home? Will the dining room double up as a home office or study?

The kids (and pets) are a major factor, too – will they be using the dining room between mealtimes?

To clarify the dining set you need, make a list of who’s using the dining room and for what purpose.

Once you’ve settled on the amount of furniture and the space, the real fun begins – choosing your dining set!

Bar stools

If you like a morning latte or night-time tipple, why not settle down on a chic bar stool?

They’re effortlessly cool and ideal space-saving seats for smaller homes.

Dining room accessories

Home accessories are essential when putting your unique stamp on a space.

Here are a few guaranteed to level up your dining room:

Rugs

Rugs are dining room must-haves and serve practical purposes from protecting the floor to imbuing your space with warmth, texture, and a vibrant splash of colour.

Plus, they’re portable and considerably cheaper than carpets or laminate flooring, so you can overhaul the room’s entire look without redecorating!

Mirrors

Mirrors aren’t just for getting ready – pick the right one, and it’ll make a statement by itself and make the entire space appear bigger – win-win!

Sideboards and shelving

A sleek sideboard or chest of drawers are brilliant alternatives to kitchen cupboards for extras like your special cutlery, the kids’ craft stash, or even your laptop and work files.

On the walls, shelves provide a perfect platform for family photos, ornaments, or your coveted vinyl.

And if you love a tipple, consider a wine cabinet to showcase your vintage vino!

Lighting

Dining room lighting is essential, especially if it’s a multifunctional space.

It sets the mood (especially dimmer lights) and illuminates your dinner!

And if your dining room doubles up as an office or the kids do their homework at the table, grab a small table to light up your workspace.

Clocks

Clocks are often overlooked when decorating these days, as we all carry devices that tell the time!

But like mirrors, they make stunning statement pieces and knit together the surrounding décor.

Skeleton clocks with Roman numerals are perfect for traditional dining rooms, while you can’t go wrong with a minimalist wall clock in a contemporary setting.
