In many ways, the dining room is the focal point of the home. It needs to be at once inviting, comfortable and practical. It is where many of your friends and loved ones will spend time and make memories. Ultimately, your dining room should reflect your unique style and personality. Here’s a list of five creative dining room ideas, borrowed from some of the most original interior designers Malibu has produced.
Country, quaint, farm-chic–whatever you call it, rustic dining rooms are in. Large wooden plank tables accented with simple dining room chairs bring out the country charm, offering plenty of room for large family-style gatherings.
Bold and brilliant, add splashes of bright colors throughout your dining room. This could include floral drapes, accent walls and coordinated flatware. Tie the room together with decorative accent features and dark wood table to bring out the contrast.
- Natural and Homey
Not all dining sets need to match. In fact, a mis-match of reclaimed furniture and heirlooms can add a homey touch to your dining area. Create a casual, lived-in look for the space. Place a rustic centerpiece arrangement to bring the design together.
For a more traditional, elegant approach, formal dining rooms never go out of style. Consider upholstered seating or Rattan chairs. Colors should be neutral with an emphasis on bright whites. Offset the white table tops and chairs with wood or lacquer accent features and colored table settings.
When space is limited, you can still have an elegant dining area, though a few adjustments need to be made. First, size down your table. A small bistro-style table that seats two to three is a great way to add style without sacrificing precious floor space.
