How to decorate a dining table

A dining table is a place to sit and enjoy delicious food and good company. So what better way to make the most of your time at home than by setting – and decorating – your dining table?

Pick plates, glasses, cutlery, and napkins to match the style of your room; this is where you can let your personality show through. While there’s no such thing as ‘perfection’ in decorating, we’ll give you some tips on how to get it as close to that as possible.

Many coffee tables or end tables double as dining tables, usually for six people maximum, though small ones might only fit four! If yours does not, and you want a separate place for guests to dine, you should opt for smaller, round, or square options that will not be as much of an eye-sore.

If you’re going rustic and want a dining table with character, we recommend buying one made from solid wood. They come in different kinds (maple, oak, pine), so it’s up to you which one fits your style best. You can also decide how sturdy you want it to be; 90cm high is the standard height for most homes but if yours is higher or lower than usual, make sure to buy accordingly!

Always keep storage space in mind when picking a place to sit and eat. For example, if you don’t have enough room on your ground floor or balcony, it might be worth investing in a small stand or some chairs that fit under your table.

When it comes to the style, there’s no need to stick with a classic solid color. It might be difficult at first, but you can always start small and work up from there. For example, if hot pink doesn’t feel like a good fit, try going for a pattern instead – just make sure that your pattern isn’t too loud or hard to match!

Remember that decorating is all about having fun, so don’t be afraid of trying new things out. A living area should never be dull, so if you want something different from time to time, go ahead and switch it up! Whether it’s flowers or fairy lights, have an open mind and enjoy being creative.
