How to create a stylish dining area: 10 designers share their secrets
1. Team cool outdoor chairs with an indoor table
Designer secret: Remember to consider your table width
“When choosing the size of your dining table, proportion is key in relation to your dining area and table length. Ample room for platters and decorations, and room for people to move creates easy conversation and a meal to remember.” – Jeremy Willoughby, Corso De’ Fiori.
2. Use a patterned rug to lift a simple scheme
Designer secret: It’s all about defining the space
“Rug size is so important; more than colour and design. the right size will define the space and make your furniture look better. it will pull everything together, making the space inviting – somewhere you’ll want to spend time.” – Annie Loveridge, The Ivy House.
3. Keep your kitchen island clutter free to create a social space
Designer secret: Create laidback spaces
“The benefit of island seating is the social interaction, encouraging conversation between the busy cook and the casual observer or family member awaiting their meal.” – Toni Roberts, Kitchen Architect.
