When designing their home, people sometimes leave their dining room as an afterthought. Here’s why you shouldn’t do that! Your dining room is essential for entertaining, as well as showing off your style choices. Let me show you what I mean.
This Oakland condo was purchased by a female doctor who wanted a little more glam in her dining experience, and to still feel welcoming to both men and women.
A heavy wood dining table is a bit of a masculine piece, so balance it out with some shine, like the copper triptych artwork. That way your space appeals to all genders.
You can come home from a long day at the office and still throw a glamorous late-night dinner party with very little effort in a dining room like this, adding a little texture and sparkle to your evening under a fabulous chandelier.
If you don’t like a lot of fuss, then a contemporary-style dining space might be for you.
This dining room is streamlined by clean designs with an industrial charm, as you can see in the modern glass table with twisted metal legs, surrounded by blue leather dining chairs. Leather and glass are a very modern style choice. The table also expands, so you can seat up to 8, and the knotty cedar wood wall construction, like a ski lodge, keeps it feeling cozy.
If you are drawn to natural elements with some history, a traditional dining room is a good style choice for you.
The beauty of the natural wood and the craftsmanship really come through in a traditional dining space like this one. Going without a rug is in keeping with the style, and makes it easy to clean up after your meal.
Splurge on something like a Schonbeck chandelier made from gorgeous rock crystals, to continue the natural elements and complement the woodwork. This dining room would be perfect for someone who appreciates the classics.
