An extendable round dining table is a space saver for quiet days but can accommodate several more hungry mouths when entertaining. Both Loaf and Laura Ashley have classical looking round tables that add enduring elegance to a dining room. Square tables with dropped leaves are suitable for smaller dining rooms and serve as good desks. If you have a larger space Loaf’s Homer dining table extends from 180cm to a roomy 240cm with its hidden extendable leaf.
Strong use of colour is not for the faint hearted, but a great way to create a dramatic dining experience. Be daring with colour on both the walls and floors, or for a more subtle approach, try a bright rug under the table to help define the dining zone, or create focal points with graphic paintings and prints. For an atmospheric dining experience, a range of tones in the same colour will unite the entire space, while a dark painted ceiling will give the room a cosy feel. If you have a dado rail, consider wallpaper above it and a deep colour below for a cocooning effect.
Lighting is a key element too, so make the most of natural light where you can, framing a window or French doors with floor length curtains, which can also add a warming feel in the colder months. A decorative chandelier or statement pendant lights directly above the table create a wonderful focal point, but add a selection of candles and lamps to create a relaxing ambience for evening entertaining.
