  • Opening Intro -

    If you want to renovate your dining room, including adding new furniture, then don't despair!

    You can create a whole new fresh look for minimal cost with a little bit of imagination and forward thinking.


You need to consider the style of dining table and furniture, the space that you have, as well as accessories, lighting and flooring. Here are a few tips for you to consider when planning that perfect dining room and buying the furniture that you need.

Consider your space

The way in which you choose furniture will very much depend upon the space you have available. After all, you need to fit everything in, but also have room in which to freely walk about. You obviously need a dining table so choose this item first and then decide where it is going to go in the room.

If you have a large room, then the dining table and chairs can be placed in the center of the room. However if you have a small space then you need to be a little bit more creative. Ideally the table and chairs should be placed in a corner of the room or against a wall so that there is still space to walk around.

Dining table and furniture

These are the basics of your dining room. It is where everyone will sit and eat and come together.

As already mentioned, you need to consider the space that you have, then you need to think about style. Do you want rustic wood, or do you prefer stainless steel and glass? This all depends of course upon your budget and taste as there is no wrong choice here, but as your dining table is the focus of the room, any other furniture and accessories need to complement it.

So ideally if you buy a wooden dining table, then your accompanying furniture also needs to be made of wood.

Choice of furniture

Your dining chairs obviously have to match your table, but nowadays you can buy your chairs separately if you want a little more choice.

You also need to consider what other furniture you would like. Perhaps a side cabinet or nest of tables? Again they need to match or complement your dining table.

Styles of dining table

  1. Dining table with bench seating – Are fantastic for smaller spaces as they are compact with the benches being easily pushed under the table.
  2. Square/long rectangular tables – This type of table works well in any size room. In a large room they can take center stage, whereas in a smaller room they can be placed against a wall.
  3. Round tables – These are ideally best placed in small spaces. They can fit into smaller spaces and with no sharp corners are generally more safe, especially with young children. Another bonus is that you can seat more people around this shape of table. Also, to create a feeling of more space, a glass or transparent table top will help to do this.

Hopefully you now have a few ideas in order to help you plan your new dining room. Choose your dining table and furniture carefully and go from there. If you have enjoyed reading this article then do please share with your friends on social media.
