Dining and Living Room Style Tips

Whether it's an independent area or a part of another room, designing the dining room and living room can be tricky. Eating and spending time with your family in a well-designed area that reflects your style can enhance your experiences and make for cherish-able memories.

You've arrived at the perfect place if you're looking for living and dining room ideas to make your area more welcoming, stylish, and cosy. Here are some tips to transform both areas:

Dining Room


The dining table is this rooms centre of attraction. Therefore, the dining table is usually situated in the centre of the dining room, with buffets, console tables and/or ottomans surrounding in compliment.


Table: To create a dining room, first, choose a proportionate table for the space. You must also consider the number of seated guests. If your room is limited, a round table will save you space.

For the material, we recommend wood or natural stone such as travertine or marble as they are sustainable and timeless. A high-quality resin dining table can add a modern aesthetic and in right design, can be timeless in itself.

Chair: Natural wood, vegan leather or fabrics such as boucle can enhance any dining table or be the attraction itself.

To avoid a congested look, leave three feet of space behind your chairs. This gives you and your guests room to move around the table.


Lighting is a vital part of your dining room. It may make or break the overall look. Pendant lights can quickly elevate and personalize your dining environment.

Install a dimmer switch to control the brightness. Also, hang chandeliers or pendant lighting 30 inches above the table to keep them out of your way.


Floral Arrangement: If you like flowers, now is to add some to your dining room. A well-designed flower centrepiece can boost your dining room's ambience and enhance its natural feel.

Living Room

Select a Coffee Table That Fits the Space

This is vital. A coffee table that’s big can overcrowd the space and make it difficult to move around. Too small and it will look lost. Smaller spaces, or spaces with curved sofas can benefit from a round coffee table to save space and compliment the sofas aesthetic. A rectangular or stacked coffee table will suite lager spaces and ensure table access from more angles of the room.

Use Console Tables to Define Spaces

Console tables are very adaptable. These can be pushed up against a wall or a sofa to provide quick barriers between portions of an open concept living area or sitting arrangement.

A console table provides open storage, perfect for candles and flowers, as well as divides the seating area from the surrounding open space.

Side Tables

Side tables bring everything together. Smaller open spaces can be gracefully filled by a side table to add both character and functionality. It’s always a good idea to use side tables that match the coffee table or dining table to really tie the room together.
