Dining Room / May 18, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
Don’t let a small dining room restrict you. Increase the space in a narrow dining room with a slimline table and wall-hung accessories. If you have a large family or a continuous stream of guests visiting then a small, circular table may not be an option for you. Instead, invest in a slender table that will fit neatly into a narrow space, such as a kitchen-diner, conservatory or even a hallway. Free up floor space with wall-hung lighting on pivots that can be positioned over your table to provide efficient task lighting. Wire it up to a dimmer switch for an ambient glow – ideal for intimate meals. Finally, punctuate the scheme with artwork and table decorations to add character and personality.
Set the scene for a casual dinner with a fun patchwork tablecloth in a design of checks, plains and stripes; you can recycle tea towels instead of using fabric to get the same effect. This dining room scheme of blues and reds continues with a retro style wallpaper, painted chairs and a patchwork cushion.
Gather round for an informal meal at a canteen-style dining table, seated in comfort at a cushioned painted bench. Fabrics patterned with colourful garden seed packets brighten the scene. Create a country ambiance with flagstone flooring and brick walls, adding a hint of industrial edge with factory-style pendant lights. On the table, stick to a green theme with a shapely kettle, jug and water bottle.
When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
