Key Trends

Key Trend

Informal Dining

An informal dining set-up is characterised by a more relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Some ways to create an informal dining setting include:Incorporating a mix of seating options, such as benches, chairs and stools.

Using a variety of textures and materials, such as wicker, linen, and reclaimed wood.Incorporating natural elements, such as plants and flowers.

Using lighting fixtures that create a warm and inviting ambience, like pendant lights or table lamps.

Making sure that the dining space is open and connected to other areas of the home.

Overall, the main focus is to create a comfortable and inviting space that encourages people to gather, relax and enjoy a meal together.

Key Trend

Vibrant Colours

Fun and colourful dining rooms are back this years with an emphasis on bold hues and maximalism. To create this in your home, try the following tips:

Here are several ways to create a colourful dining room:

Use bold paint colours on the walls to create a statement. Bright hues like yellow, orange and blue can add a lot of personality to a space.

Add colourful accents through accessories and decor. This could include artwork, patterned curtains or rugs, or brightly-coloured dining chairs.

Incorporate patterns and prints in the dining room, such as a patterned tablecloth, tableware or patterned seat cushions.

Use lighting fixtures to add a pop of colour. This could be a pendant light or a chandelier with colourful glass or crystal elements.

Incorporate natural elements like plants and flowers to add natural colour and texture to the space.

Mix and match different textures and patterns to create an eclectic and interesting space.

It's important to keep in mind that when creating a colourful dining room, you should strive for a balance between different hues and patterns. Too much colour can be overwhelming, so consider using a neutral background and adding pops of colour through accessories and decor.

Key Trend

Darker Wood Tones

A dining room using darker wood can create a warm, inviting, and elegant atmosphere. 

Use a dark wood dining table as the focal point of the room. This can be a traditional or modern design, and it can be paired with a variety of chair styles and finishes.

Incorporate dark wood cabinetry or storage pieces, such as a sideboard or china cabinet, to add warmth and character to the room.

Use dark wood flooring or dark wood-look flooring to create a cohesive look throughout the space.

Add dark wood accents through decorative pieces such as vases or wall art frames.

Incorporate natural elements like plants or flowers to add contrast and balance to the space.

Add light-coloured textiles like linens or curtains to add a touch of warmth and soften the look of the room.

It's important to keep in mind that darker woods can create a cosy and sophisticated atmosphere, but they can also make the room look smaller, so it's important to use them in moderation and combine them with light elements.
