Dinner Is Served: Our 5 Favorite Dining Room Ideas

by Jane K on June 18, 2018

Whether you’re completely refurnishing your dining room or just updating your space, these five dining room ideas can help you achieve the perfect setting for family dinners and casual dinner parties.

Round Dining Tables

Do your dinner conversations tend to turn toward academic discussions and lively debates? Because of their shape, round dining tables are perfect for intimate conversations shared between friends and family. Whether you’re sharing a meal or competing in family game night, a round dining table will bring you closer to the people around you.

Buffet Cabinets

If you’re looking for dining room ideas outside of traditional dining sets, buffet cabinets can be a great way to add charm and functionality to your dining space. This Hutch & Buffet from Weatherford Hastings features adjustable shelves and drawers with a beautiful, rustic style.

Counter-Height Tables

Especially in smaller spaces, counter-height dining tables can create the illusion of space in the room, plus they provide additional food prep space if your kitchen lacks traditional counter space. If you find yourself frequently entertaining guests, counter-height tables can also make it less awkward to have a seated conversation with people standing nearby.

Dining Benches

Who needs their own chair? As interior designers shift from formal to more casual looks, dining benches continue to gain popularity in dining rooms across the country. Save space without losing seating capacity and create a more casual, intimate eating experience for your friends and family.

Built-In Storage

If your kitchen and dining area are lacking in space, a dining table with built-in storage can be a great way to add functionality without sacrificing style. We love this gorgeous Drop Leaf Counter Table with Stacked Drawers from our Trisha Yearwood Collection, which offers extra drawer storage and flexible table tops to save space in your dining room.
