Consider Your Space
From outfitting a small kitchen dining nook to furnishing a formal room or casual open-space dining area with a complete set of contemporary dining room furniture, there can be a lot of options when it comes to styling a dining space. A helpful place to start is by considering the scale of the area. Your dining room chairs and table should leave at least 3’ of clearance on each side so you can comfortably pull out the chairs and move behind people seated at the table. If you have a sideboard, cabinet, or other pieces to accent your dinner furniture, make sure to factor this in when laying out the space. Take a note from pro designers and try mocking the layout of your dining room furniture with blue painter’s tape when planning.
Style by Size
Try a round table design like our Victoria Round Dining Table in a small space or breakfast nook. Its turned iron base and marble top offer a polished charm to set off a transitional decor while comfortably seating 2 to 4 people. Round tables are an excellent choice for contemporary dining room furniture. They encourage a casual style while making movement easy in a high-traffic area like a kitchen. Styling a sculptural centerpiece like a bowl or vase can reflect the curved edges of the table for an elevating touch in a laid-back dining space.
For a traditional dining room, you may opt for a rectangular or oval table. If it is a larger space, make sure to scale your dining room furniture to the area. This Sun at Six Crest Dining Table comes in two finishes and in multiple lengths to offer the versatile styling appeal of oak dining room furniture while comfortably seating up to 12 people. Bringing in elements like sideboards and cabinets will also help you balance a larger space while offering a functional touch of storage.
If you choose dinner furniture for an open-plan dining area, extendable tables can provide dynamic appeal. Their compact footprint seats 6 to 8 for everyday convenience and can expand for special occasions or dinner parties, instantly transforming your space into a large dining hall with plenty of space at the table. A streamlined bench design like our Inez Dining Bench can be used for flexible seating and styled against a wall as a spot for houseplants or books when not in use.
A well-balanced dining space should have dining room furniture that reflects a single aesthetic yet provides textural and tonal contrast. Modern and traditional kitchen furnitures offer different styles but can be blended for transitional decor. When styling dining chairs, you can opt for a polished aesthetic with a tailored set or mix and match chairs for a fresh, eclectic feel. They should all have some unifying element, such as a similar finish or texture, to keep the space from feeling busy and undefined.
To ground your dining room furniture, consider styling a low pile or flatweave rug centered under the table to accentuate it as the focal point and to set off your art, serveware, and linens with a visual anchor. Make sure the rug extends about 2’ from the table so guests can pull back chairs without tripping over the edge.
However you decide to style it, remember that the collective looks of your dining room and kitchen furnitures allow you the flexibility to put your unique aesthetic on display. A curated set of modern dining room furniture lets you bring an individualized style to gathered occasions and everyday dining. It allows you a chance to show guests and loved ones your taste with little touches of nuanced design that create an inviting dining space.
