For most of us, our dining room is a place for us to catch up, laugh, eat and rejoice with friends and family. Whether it's a stand-alone room or part of an open-plan zone, dining areas come in all shapes and sizes. Let’s not forget that a dining area is a place that should be practical, functional, and beautiful. A place for family dinners, homework, and dapper dinner parties, your dining room has the potential to be one of the most-frequented rooms in your home if you get the design right. We have listed some smart tips and tricks with which any room can become the perfect hub for entertaining – while being functional and stylish at the same time.
1. Choose the right-sized dining table
1100mm is the ideal width for a table, which allows for perfect table settings: platters of food, table decorations, glassware, candles, wine bottles, and most importantly still encourages great conversation across the table. To get a dining table sized perfectly for your home, you can get it customized at FurnitureAdda.
2. Live edge dining tables
A live edge dining table isn’t just for rustic cottages. Live edge tables are big news right now and there are sizes to suit all sorts of dining room floor plans. Buy kitchen and dining room furniture online only at FurnitureAdda. This 6-seater dining table is crafted from teak wood and features a sculpted wave edge that creates an undulating natural pattern along the edge of the table – perfect for traditional as well as modern themed homes.
3. Marble for the win!
Introduce a sense of movement with a veined marble-top dining table for an uber-luxe look. Marble has been a symbol of luxury for centuries. This stunning natural stone is famous for its opulence that oozes grace and elegance. It is at the top of the expensive material charts, homeowners who love the classic beauty style or the modern minimalistic approach, opt for this stone when it comes to home décor.
4. Round table for flow
If it's an open room, but not huge and other rooms lead off it, a round table can work best – it lends itself to a space that also acts as a thoroughfare. No sharp corners and soft edges for the flow of traffic. Our Serenity Round Dining Table is available in two variants – 4-seater & 6-seater dining table.
5. Set up a luxurious bar
A home bar is the key to a luxurious home made for entertaining. You will want to have a designed space with lavish decor in order to mingle with guests at your home. Building a home bar into an interior design plan can be as complex or straightforward as you like. If you want it to melt into the rest of the room and not dominate, treat it as a piece of occasional furniture that will slot in easily, much like a console table would.
