A sideboard is a superb spot to store plates, cutlery and glasses, in particular when they look as cool and unique as this one does. The attractive painting, quirky lighting fixtures and an ornate candelabrum contrast with the white sideboard in this modern dining room.
If your dining area consists of nothing more than a table and four chairs, work them hard to make a decorative design of their own. Give old real wood furniture a new rent of life by painting in hues of your choice. This green and yellow combination brings a country feel to a stand and chairs. Look for offcuts of cloth and hem up so you always have a pretty collection of tablecloths to hand this floral changes the desk into a very special place indeed when teamed with a screen of fresh blossoms.
A dark, little space with a minimal ceiling might seem an improbable contender for a successful dining room system, but just understand this wonderful design. An all-over whitewash of surfaces, roof and floor has a modernising result, making a dark space light and creating the feel of the gallery or exhibition space. The white backdrop throws everything in the area into sharp pain relief: artwork, bench, antique chair and farmhouse stand, but it is the pops of red (artwork, lampshade, stand) that will be the final ingredient of the successful scheme one that manages to be more than the sum of its parts.
Apart from family dishes and fabulous dinner parties, think about how exactly else to make the almost all of your dining room. Do you will need a small table area tucked in the corner, or simply a comfy chair for curling up with a good reserve? Kitchen rooms can be truly multi-functional spaces for the whole family to take pleasure from, so think about what your home needs really are before embarking on your decorating task.
Use a windows to include interest. The view of any well stocked garden, open countryside or cityscape can be all that's needed to include interest and beauty to small dining room. If you're lucky enough to have a picture window, reserve an area right next to it for your table it will work miracles. Here, the clean-lined modern-day furniture and pared-back artwork don't fight with the view, making for a pleasant, peaceful space.
