Dining Room Design Ideas

Dining Rooms are a place to gather, to entertain, to connect over good food and conversation! We think that no matter what style and size your dining room is, it should be a place that welcomes you in, time and time again. Whether you have a small breakfast nook that is your main eating space, or a grand dining room reserved for special occasions, there is one commonality that we strive for when creating a dining room design; functionality. Regardless of the dining room design style one chooses to go with, it’s very important that the space not only speaks to them stylistically but that it works for their specific needs. The style options for a dining room design are endless, but understanding how you’ll use the room and your needs will help you roll out some dining room layout ideas! For instance, if you entertain or like to mix up cocktails, a bar cart can not only add a practical element but is a fun and stylish piece to add to a dining room! If you have a more traditional sense and need storage for dinnerware and or display space for a collection, a buffet or hutch is a great investment. After gathering dining room design inspiration and narrowing down on style and functionality, you can move on to the fun parts of the design; furniture selection! Arguably the most important feature of any dining room is the dining table! This is usually the largest item in the room, the biggest financial investment, and will guide the style of the dining room. Dining chairs are not to be overlooked either, as they add personality and can be a fun way to add color and texture to your dining room! When deciding on anything for your dining space however, a few key questions should be considered; how many people do you need to seat? Is the space used by young children? How much maintenance does it require? When you break it down, it isn’t so hard and can be quite fun to design a dining room! To start, enjoy all of our dining room design ideas and gather inspiration!
