Your dining room is often a hub of the house, offering space for eating, working, entertaining, and more. Bring yours into the 21st century and beyond with a refined combination of sleek, high-gloss units and chrome elements to update your dining experience and show off your on-trend aesthetic.
Swap your natural or painted woods for high-gloss finishes in clean white or sophisticated black. With your dining table being the focal point of your room, a simple, no-fuss design of straight edges and slender legs will create the perfect base for your theme. More flashy designs with single stem structures will bring a fashionable edge to your look while clear glass table tops allow attention to be drawn to the other furnishings in your room.
Harmonise the clean-cut edges and sharp corners of your dining table with smooth-flowing curves and cylindrical chrome legs. Faux leather upholstery perfectly complements the smooth surfaces of your table and brings a touch of texture to the room. To add a glamorous or exotic flare to your style, studded velvet chairs with high backs, button detailing, and rich colours are ideal.
The next element to add to your room is storage. Sleek sideboards hide your table cloths, settings, and other dining room items, while providing surface space for accent décor and table lamps. Display cabinets with glass fronts are perfect for showcasing your modern crockery and glassware while keeping them at hand for meal times. Modern units will stick to your black and white colour scheme, with some featuring bright LEDs for a functional, futuristic vibe.
The main lighting in your room, the ceiling lights, should be flush fittings or classic cyclindrical shades in crisp white. The benefit of flush fittings is that they offer an opportunity to add extra decoration and elegance to your room. From silver leaves that branch out across your ceiling to chrome swirls and crystal adornments, flush fittings can be both contemporary and eye-catching.
For an alternative to your main lights, place a table lamp on your sideboard and switch to this for a cosier ambience. Unique and abstract designs of flowing metal loops and ultra-modern LED strips with touch control will ensure this low light solution is still on trend.
Finish off your new stylings with some contemporary décor. A metal fruit bowl for the centre of your fine new table, a bold ornament to sit alongside your lamp, and chic set of placemats and coasters for when dinner comes around. Hang abstract works of art on the walls alongside a lustrous mirror to reflect your sensational new style.
