Dining area with view towards kitchen

Neutral dining area with wooden dining furniture

Create a traditional feel with wooden dining furniture. Good-quality wooden furniture will last a lifetime and the inevitable knocks it gets over the years just seem to add to its character. This dining room benefits from an open-plan feel and connects directly to the kitchen. It’s round the corner, though, so it also has a feeling of being its own room.

Relaxed dining area with glamorous accents

Shades of pink and grey combined with country-style wooden furniture create a calm and tranquil atmosphere in this family dining area. The pale pink Chesterfield sofa in front of a subtly patterned wallpaper is the focal point of the room, while a large mirror maximises the light and increases the sense of space. To dress up the scheme for a special occasion, a shimmering table runner and metallic vase add a note of glamour.

Christmas dressed dining area

Festive-decorated Christmas dinner table and dining area

Get your inspiration from nature this Christmas, using a real tree branch hung above the dining table. Decorate it with hanging decorations, garlands, holly and berries for an alternative centrepiece. Then keep the table itself simple with a touch of holly or ivy, dried nuts and maybe a candle or two.

Traditional Christmas dining table in country home

Traditional festive dining table laid for Christmas dinner

If you’re lucky enough to have a big family dining table, it’s the best fun to deck out at Christmas. Tall candle holders like these are ideal as they leave plenty of room for all the food. Add a personal touch with home-made place cards for each member of the family.

Biblical wall hangings in festive red and white dining room

Rich wall hangings can give a warm depth to rooms, particularly at Christmas. Here the red wall hanging taken from a 17th-century tapestry provides a grand backdrop to the antique-white dessert buffet table. Red candles and silver trees complete the festive feel, along with red baubles and glittering LED lights.

Traditional English Cottage dining room with French designs

Traditional English Cottage dining room with French designs

Go for a classy French theme to your Christmas decorations, with gold and white as the key colours. This works particularly well if you have a traditional style to your decor, such as here. This is a new room, but the classic French-style cabinets, and white, distressed mirror frame, paired with the stripped back wood of the table give it a sense of history.

Country dining room with foliage chandelier

Country dining room with foliage chandelier

Red candles, bubble glassware and pretty berries welcome in the magic of Christmas. A country tartan tablecloth mixed with folksy florals adds a relaxed and informal feel. Classic plates on rattan chargers with fabric crackers and chalkboard name tags make the look rustic and personal, but the wow factor in this dining room has to be the impressive chandelier of fir and ivy foliage, hung from black highland ribbons.

Pretty country dining room scheme in copper and pink

Pretty country dining room scheme in copper and pink

Choose coppery and rusty finishes for light fittings and decorations in your dining room. Warm copper tones add light on dark days and reflect flickering candlelight beautifully. Pick up similar shades in glimmering velvet for cushions and smart satin stripes at the window. Contrast heavy linen weaves used as a tablecloth with the magical glow of copper decorations, creating a backdrop that feels reassuringly familiar while adding rustic texture.

Mismatched furniture – such as this distressed wooden dining table with its selection of chairs – gives an open-plan dining area character, as well as a relaxed atmosphere. While it’s not a traditional dining set, the neutral furniture creates a specific zone for eating while also blending with the colourful and eclectic surroundings in this country home.

Urban country style dining room

Urban country style dining room

Chunky wooden furniture immediately brings a country kitchen feel to an urban dining room. The raw texture of the exposed brick wall gives a modern contrast to more traditional details like floral crockery. Add a table runner in a patterned fabric to inject colour while still exposing the texture of the wood to keep the rural look. Finish the look with bunting, that you can customise, to add charm and personality.
