The dining room is the ultimate area in your house that makes everyone come together – especially when it’s in a stylish setting. After all the barbecuing in the Costa del Sol’s stunning weather over the hot summer this year, dining inside is certainly a welcome change!
Whether you’re getting together for a homemade dinner, a quick drink, or a lazy afternoon lunch; doing it with friends and family just makes it better. At Mad About Furniture, we understand the importance of creating a beautiful and functioning dining space for your home, and in this blog, we’ll be looking at ways we can help you to do just that.
Preparing your Future Dining Room On The Costa del Sol
Designing and styling your dining room is an exciting prospect for those who love great design. But before you do this, it’s important to lay out a plan and measure the room and the furniture you want. First, you’ll want to plan a layout. Start by measuring up the pieces of furniture that you’re willing to keep and also consider the sizes of any new additions. Next, you’ll want to try and define your style. Is your home more contemporary than rustic? Are you looking for something that’s more of a statement piece, or are you wanting something more low-key? If you’re stuck for ideas, our showroom in Estepona is a great place to help you get some inspiration. We stock a wide range of dining room furniture and accessories, so you can visit and get a feel for the furniture you have in mind.
Colour Up your Home on the Costa del Sol
After figuring out the measurements and what style you’re looking to go for, it’s time to get to the fun parts! Your choice of colour will completely impact and influence the mood of the space, so it’s important to choose well. Neutral tones like whites, greys, and beige are all timeless colours that will leave any space feeling clean and fresh, as well as allowing you the freedom to accessorise with practically any colour. Meanwhile, bolder colours such as deep blues and greens, or rich reds are great for creating more intimate and romantic settings.
Lighting Up the Place
There are a few things you should consider before you decide on lighting options for your dining room. The key spot over your dining table isn’t just to light up the table, it’s also the perfect way to showcase your style. Do you want a singular pendant, or do you want to accessorise and add multiple pendants? A singular pendant may evoke a more contemporary feel, whilst multiple pendants create a more unique look.
You’ll also need to think about what other furniture you have in the room, as well as choosing lighting that reflects the size of the space. Will your statement lighting be enough to light up the room, or should you consider using wall lights to add an extra dimension to the room? Table lamps and floor lamps are also great if you want a more intimate and cosy setting.
Dining as an Experience
Of all the dining room furniture to choose from, it can seem a little overwhelming to pick out the right pieces for your needs. Our selection of dining chairs and tables may give you some inspiration, but if you’re looking for a complete package, we also have a range of dining sets to choose from here at Mad About Furniture. If nothing takes your fancy, or if you have a vision in mind, we can even create bespoke dining tables to a specific size, style and finish.
Wall to Wall
Depending on your style, or the look you’re trying to achieve, bare and empty can sometimes make a dining room feel incomplete. Look at personalising your space with artwork, mirrors, or even a gallery wall of family photos. Mirrors can help reflect light and make the room appear more spacious, while art and wall décor can tie the room’s design elements together. Displaying a piece of art in your home is not just displaying a creation; it’s showcasing someone’s passion. It’s a personal touch that instantly establishes the ambience in any room and even creates a talking piece when entertaining guests, too.
