How to decorate and furnish a dining room

If you’re looking to renovate or decorate your home, the dining room should be one of the first places to start. It plays such a pivotal role in your Yorkshire home and is one of the main rooms for the coming together of both friends and family.

A dining room should replicate everything you want your home to be about. Its furniture should create a warm and friendly atmosphere that is both inviting and practical for eating at the same time.  

Therefore, much consideration should go into choosing your dining room furniture.

Here are a few things to bear in mind:

Dining table

There are many shapes and sizes of dining tables and each will be better suited to different tastes, room sizes, family sizes and interior design. If you have a big family or you like to host dinner parties and family get-togethers then the bigger the better, for example. Providing you have space, your dining table should be able to accommodate lots of people who can spend lots of quality time with one another.

Dining chairs

Dining chairs need to be the perfect balance between comfort and practicality. They should be strong and sturdy enough to support your posture while you're eating, but at the same time, it should be soft enough to be comfortable to enjoy your meal. Cushion and padded chairs make for great dining chains for precisely this reason.


Sideboards often get overlooked in dining rooms, yet they are still such a huge part of the furniture of the room and play an important role too. The sideboards help bring the entire area together. If you are going for a traditional oak look then something like the Titchmarsh range is perfect. Likewise, if it's modern you’re after then a sideboard from Jensen would work brilliantly.

When you’re redecorating your dining room, be sure to plan ahead. Have a picture of what you want your finished product to look like. Make sure your furniture doesn’t clash with each other and instead creates a seamless flow of distinctive furniture that compliments each other.
