If you’re striving to achieve a calm and modern dining environment, intricate patterns in neutral shades won’t go a miss. Replace traditional dark walls with patterned wallpaper or uplifting colours in neutral shades. Contemporary bookcases and floor to ceiling shelving can look great when stacked with books and quirky objects.
Other than family meals and fabulous dinner parties, think about how else to make the most of your dining room. Do you need a small desk area tucked in the corner, or perhaps a comfy chair for curling up with a good book? Dining rooms can be truly multi-functional spaces for the whole family to enjoy, so think about what your household needs really are before embarking on your decorating project.
Another good starting point is to think about the number of people you are likely to entertain at any one time. You might not be able to change the room size, but there are ways of adapting the space to cater for the number of guests, such as using extendable tables and fold up chairs. If you like to serve food inside the dining room, then buffet tables and sideboards with the addition of a hot plate are a great idea.
Once the walls are sorted, other elements, such as curtains and chair upholstery, can be chosen to coordinate with whatever your décor choice. For bold walls in dark colours, it’s often safe to keep accessories, such as tableware, more neutral. But when you have a neutral colour scheme, you can be bolder with the details.
