Eclectic blue dining room with teak table and mismatched chairs

Eclectic blue dining room with teak table and mismatched chairs

This scheme has a distinctive 196os look about it. This dining room features an eclectic combination of vintage pieces mixed in with some that are more modern or industrial. A unique and characterful feature wall has been created with a selection of art, prints and photos – it looks particularly effective against a deep blue backdrop. The teak dining table has been paired with mismatched chairs to complete the eclectic vibe.

Neutral dining room with eye-catching floral dining chairs

Introducing bold florals to your decorating scheme may feel a little daunting, but the key to showing them off to their best advantage is restraint. Here, a large floral print on the dining chairs makes a striking statement against a backdrop of carefully coordinated plains.

Neutral dining room with zigzag rug and palm print chair

Neutral dining room with zigzag rug and palm print chair

Go for a mostly monochrome scheme with neutral walls and black wood furniture. Next add in some black and white patterns, for interest. And if you’re feeling brave, throw in a little bit of the unexpected with a palm print chair or cushion. If you do, make sure to have some natural greenery to complement it.

Dining room extension with glass roof

Dining room extension with glass roof and garden view

If you’re planning a kitchen-diner extension, consider a glazed roof. During the day, it will make you feel like you’re sitting out in the garden – and at night, you’ll be able to dine under the stars. An exposed brick wall creates a stylish feature that doesn’t try to hide the original exterior.

Basement dining area with direct access to the garden

Basement dining area with direct access to the garden

This basement area is a winner all round. A stunning glass staircase that is a great feature in its own right leads to the kitchen above, while the dining area also offers direct access to the garden. The room is large, so a bird-print wallpaper creates a natural separation of the living space. All in all the scheme perfectly takes advantage of the space below the main house.

Neutral dining room with block-print tablecloth

Neutral dining room with block-print tablecloth

Add some artisan charm to your dining room scheme with a block-print tablecloth. Opting for a single print in a neutral scheme is a great way to focus attention and enliven a simple space. Pops of bright contrast colour on shapely tableware and accessories are a fitting accompaniment to the crisp design.

Large open-plan dining area with exposed-brick wine rack

Who doesn’t want a wine rack in their kitchen? Our sentiments exactly! Exposed brick is all the rage just now – it’s stylish, rustic and cool, adding fabulous detail to any space. The fact that this large kitchen-diner has a cleverly built-in wine rack added into the mix, plus a cutely curved wall, shows that some serious design genius has been at play here.

Easter-themed dining room with bunny wallpaper

Easter-themed dining room with bunny wallpaper

Okay, so we’re not suggesting that you hang a bunny wallpaper in time for Easter. That would be asking a teeny bit much. However, we thought you might enjoy this wonderful Easter space that’s just perfect for a celebratory egg and soldiers breakfast. Add pretty flowers and cute bunny sculptures to the table and you’re good to go.

Compact dining area in corner of living room

Compact dining area in corner of living room

No room for a dining area in your kitchen? Then make use of a small corner in the space just outside. Folding doors are a clever touch, as they allow the kitchen to be closed off, but also create a free-flowing feel when open. If you don’t want to knock through or can’t afford structural changes, this is a great option.
