A dining room draped in luxury need not be all about timeless aesthetics, plenty of gold and a healthy dose of Victorian style. Even modern dining rooms with their gorgeous wood or stone dining tables, neutral colors that oscillate between black, white and gray and contemporary finishes can seem equally enchanting when done right. A large part of getting this elusive jigsaw right is lighting. Yup, it once again comes down to a sparkling chandelier, a cascading pendant fixture with crystal brilliance or even a custom chandelier that steals the spotlight with ease. Metallics play a pivotal part in giving the dining room a luxurious look. Even if you are not too keen on an overload of ‘gold’, do think about more restrained and modern metallic accents to usher in some much needed dazzle. A grand dining table in stone adds to this glitter with wall art, wallpaper and other coverings creating a captivating backdrop. Complete the space with beautiful vases, classic candleholders and some fresh flowers to accentuate the ‘luxury quotient’. Cabinets with glass doors or a fancy china display takes this already wonderful dining room to a whole new level.
Once you are sure about the shade of blue you love, then you can shop for carpets, lighting fixtures and dining table chairs that usher in the blue magic. Of course, those who adore the color can try out the monochromatic dining space in blue. But it is definitely not a look that all of us can pull off. When it comes to cool shades of grayish-blue, it is almost impossible to go wrong in the contemporary dining room. Maybe blue seems a touch too refined and far too close to all that gray you already have in your dining room. Not to worry, as red offers a fiery substitute that simply cannot be missed. Yes, many of us tend to shudder at the idea of using red while decorating our home. But its brightness and romantic charm offer uniqueness that no other color can bring to the table. Whether it is bright red banquette seating, bold chairs in magenta, walls clad in deep red with matte finish or an eclectic collection of colors accentuated by the presence of scarlet, you cannot ignore the majesty of red.
With changing design trends, decorating styles and constantly evolving interiors, the dining room has become a forgotten space of sorts. From being that exquisite and dedicated space for a fine dining experience to an afterthought that is increasingly playing second fiddle to the kitchen and the living space in an open plan living, modern dining rooms have becomes just ‘dining spaces’. Many homeowners feel that the additional room is better served as a second bedroom, home offices, playroom or even a guest room that doubles as study. But for those who still love the opulence, grandeur and sheer magnetism of a lavish dining room, the collection below is bound to be a visual feast.
The amenity of your dining corner is not to be underestimated. The place where you eat most of your meals should have high levels of comfort, there’s no doubt about that. It will contribute to the feeling of coziness while you are dining, not to mention keep your guest comfortable any time you are hosting a gathering. Banquettes are surely the easiest way to turn your dining space into a highly comfortable seating area, giving your comfy living room some serious competition. Small kitchens have a feeling of coziness already in them, but adding a banquette instead of a normal sitting arrangement will only heighten the feeling of “home sweet home”, as seen on Houzz. Place the banquette next to a big window and eat your meals in natural light. Your dining space can become the second sunroom, surely a decision that will have you reaping benefits for many years.
