Dazzle Your Guests: Dining Room Edition

This time of year is all about spending time with your loved ones, family and friends alike. Thus, having guests in your home is an inevitability, and obviously, impressing your guests is a must. Let’s be honest – who doesn’t get a rush of pride when their guests enviously point out their new furniture or decor? Well, that’s exactly what we’re here to help you achieve. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be delivering you our top interior design tips to dazzle your guests with your dining room, living room, and guest bedroom spaces. We’re kicking this series off today with our expert tips on putting together a Michelin-worthy dining room, so you can create the perfect environment for your fabulous dinner parties.

Invest in a quality dining set

We’ll start off by stating the obvious: a high quality dining set is an inarguable must for any luxury dining room. We’re sure that no mental gymnastics are needed to figure that one out. Your dining set should, of course, be the focal point of the room. After all, it’s where all of your guests will be gathering to enjoy good food, good drinks, and even better company.

When choosing a dining set, it’s important to not only consider its aesthetic appeal (we’ve got you covered on that!) but also its practicality. Assess the space you’re putting it in – is your dining room compact or spacious? Is it square shaped or rectangular? These are huge factors in avoiding an awkward spatial flow in the room. As a general rule, square or circular tables tend to be better suited to smaller or square shaped dining rooms. Meanwhile, rectangular or oval dining tables are better fitted to longer, more spacious dining rooms. 

Luckily for you, we’ve got a plethora of high-end dining sets in a range of sizes, shapes, and styles. Here are our top picks for luxury dining sets to bring all your guests together:

Highlight your focal point

So, you’ve got a beautiful dining set that’s guaranteed to make your guests feel right at home. Now, it’s time to shine a spotlight on it – literally! Lighting up the focal space of your dining set is always a great idea. First and foremost, lighting plays a huge role in setting the mood and atmosphere of a space. With your guests gathered around the table, you’re going to want convivial lighting that bestows a warm, inviting glow on each and every person’s face. 

Not to mention, luxury lighting tends to be a great talking point for guests – and it’ll probably be what you get the most compliments on. Installing a dazzling chandelier or a chic pendant light above the central point of your dining table will ensure that your gorgeous lighting can be seen and admired by everyone at the table. Here’s to maximising your guests’ enjoyment and the compliments you’ll get. Cheers!

Impress with decor

With that beautiful light shining down on the centre of your dining table, you’re going to want to add a little pizzazz to the area with an eye-catching centrepiece. Flowers and dinner candles are traditional dining table decor. However, keep in mind that you’re going to want to avoid anything too tall. Taller decorations can obstruct yours and your guests’ line of sight, making it harder to communicate easily. If your heart is set on flowers or candles, we recommend opting for shorter flower vases and tea lights as opposed to anything too tall. 

Alternatively, if you’ve found yourself growing tired of those more traditional touches, you can go for chic ornaments, serving dishes, and trays to spruce up your table decor.

Top tip: it’s always a great idea to create a co-ordinating colour scheme. For example, if your dining set or lighting incorporates warm or gold tones, golden centrepiece decor will elevate your dining room’s look.

Of course, your table decor isn’t all that matters. It’s important to liven up the perimeters of the room, too. Think barware, serving carts, wall art and eye-catching mirrors to add some dimension to the entire space and give your guests the most luxurious experience possible.
