Why the dining room is making a comeback

The dining room – a relic of yesteryear in many homes – is making a comeback in the post-COVID era.

Gone is the fusty formality of dining rooms made popular during the 1950s. Today’s dining room is a more light-filled, contemporary space that flows into an open-plan setting.

Dining rooms were obviously very in, but from the perspective of a busy lifestyle, people didn’t really sit down and have that dedicated eating zone.

High-end dining settings are reinventing the look and feel of a dining room. Furniture designers are producing innovative tables and chairs that can really add a creative aesthetic.

Pendant lighting

Well-placed pendant lighting can be the hero of your dining room. It need not be too dramatic; something simple can be equally as effective. Before selecting your lighting, be sure to get an idea of the room’s scale by taking the dining table’s width and length into account.

Indoor plants

The indoor plant trend is far from over. Adding a tabletop plant or larger stand-alone potted plant is a cheap and easy way to create a fresh look and feel. Plants also supply that much-needed pop of bold colour.
