The dining room is the heart of any home. Whether you’re gathering with family or friends for a grand meal or just enjoying a romantic dinner for two, your dining room can really set the tone for an amazing evening. With this past year almost behind us, and the holiday season approaching, it’s the perfect time to build your own five-star dining room for reintroducing hosting and parties into your life. If you love having great meals in the dining room as much as we do, you might be interested in our list of custom home dining room essentials to give you a space fit for royalty!
Welcome In The Natural Light
Nobody wants a gothic and vampiric dining room, so let that beautiful natural light come in! A dining room’s atmosphere can only be enhanced by the presence of natural lighting, so when building your custom dining room, make sure you have plenty of windows. Huge and plentiful windows are a great way to incorporate the beauty of nature into your home and will help keep the space warm and inviting. Plus, big spacious windows will create romantic lighting at any time of day while also giving you and your guests a talking point when you watch a bird flutter by while eating your dinner!
A Spacious Table With Plenty Of Seating
When it comes to hosting, we say the more the merrier! When you choose your furniture for your custom dining room, give yourself the opportunity to have a large and accommodating table with plenty of seating. Of course, it’s important to play to the space you have and to not go overboard, but we encourage you to take advantage of your space and allow for as much space for guests as possible. Several wooden or upholstered chairs, or even dining benches can create a welcoming and embracing atmosphere for as many guests as you please. This way, whether you’re having the girls over for dinner or the whole family plus-the-in-laws over for thanksgiving, you have the space to welcome everyone!
A Beautiful Built-In Bar
For so many of us, making elegant and delicious drinks for our guests is just as important as serving a great meal! If you love playing mixologist and making incredible drinks for your guests, a built-in bar may be the perfect choice for you! Choose custom stone countertops and built-in wall-to-wall shelving for your glasses and bottles. By choosing to build a custom bar in your dining room, you’re creating the perfect atmosphere to get creative and seasonal with all kinds of incredible drinks. Build yourself a custom dining room bar that any mixologist would envy and open up the door to making the best drinks in the neighbourhood!
It’s important for every dining room to have a talking piece: something to encourage conversation with guests and to give your space a bit of personality. Bold and patterned wallpaper is the perfect touch to add to any custom dining room to make an intimate and welcoming space an interesting one, too! Try bold and beautiful patterns, artful imagery, or even extravagant flowers for your dining room to bring a bit of life to the space, and to make your dining room unique to you and your home’s personality. Taking chances in decor and design in your home has never been easier or as enticing as a fabulous detailed accent wall in your custom dining room.
No custom dining room is complete without the perfect lighting! Whether you choose to install a gorgeous statement chandelier, small elegant hanging lights, or mounted wall lighting, personalized lighting will make your dining room perfect down to the last detail. The way you choose to light your space can create its atmosphere; romantic soft lighting or bright exciting lights, it’s yours to choose. Let our experts help you choose and install the perfect light fixtures and get compliments from guests for years to come about your creativity, style, and flare for interior design!
A Pop Of Colour
What’s your favourite colour? A great way to personalize your custom dining room is to add splashes of your favourite colour throughout! If you love a beautiful pomegranate red or a bashful robin’s egg blue, scatter that colour in your dining room by featuring it in the art on the walls, the napkins at the table, or even go so bold to create an accent wall with your favourite colour. Bringing a pop of colour into your life and into your dining room will help you to create an atmosphere that really feels like it belongs to you while keeping your space stylish and modern!
