Creating the perfect dining space

HomesInteriors|13 October 2020
From a quiet morning coffee or having breakfast with the kids to dinner parties with friends, putting the world to rights, your dining area is often your social space. It’s an area made for creating memories with your loved ones and so that’s why we think it’s a space worth investing in. Here are our top tips for creating a welcoming dining area for everyone to enjoy. 
Creating the perfect dining space

Perfect positioning 

It’s important to think about the positioning of your dining furniture. With a growing family and friends and relatives possibly using this space it’s important to make sure there’s plenty of space to move around the room, you don’t want it to be cramped. Bench seating is always a great way of creating space as it can took under the table to allow extra floor space. 

For best 

It’s easy to take your dining area for granted when you use it every day but it’s always nice to make an effort for special occasions. Whether that’s hosting a dinner party for friends or just enjoying a nice meal as a family. Set out your favourite crockery and glassware, give your table a different look to make it feel like more of a special occasion. 

Place setting 

Creating a place setting can turn up the notch from an everyday meal to a special treat. A pretty placemat, textured napkin and a sprig of greenery is a winning combo and perfect for pushing the boat out on special occasions. 


An island or breakfast bar is perfect in open plan, multifunctional spaces as it instantly makes the space feel more sociable. It’s where you can enjoy pre-dinner drinks and make sure that the person cooking can always be included! It’s also great for those busy breakfast times with the kids, making it more convenient. 

Round up 

Lastly, if space is a little tight then a round table is perfect for you. It doesn’t take up too much room and is great for a social setting as it always makes sure everyone is involved in the conversation. Round tables are also great for open plan spaces as again, they take up less room and allow for more floorspace.
