Modern Dining Room: Dine in style
Must-haves for creating a multi-functional and stylish modern dining room:
Dining Table. The table in your modern dining room is the centerpiece of the space. Good for dining, entertaining, homework and other projects, your table needs to be as multi-functional as you. Tight on modern dining room space? Expandable, pedestal and round tables are all good options.
Chairs. When it comes to sitting in your modern dining room, style and comfort are key. Modern dining chairs come in a range of materials, colors and styles. Consider mixing it up in your modern dining room by adding chairs that aren't so matchy-matchy (think a mix of metal and wood or a rainbow of colors).
Lighting. There are few things that can completely change the look and feel of your modern dining room as well as lighting. A chandelier over your table is only one part of a modern dining room lighting plan. Recessed lights can add extra wattage if you use the space for projects and homework and perimeter lighting, such as sconces or table lamps on your buffet can add even more illumination.
Sideboard. Whether you call them sideboards or buffets, this piece of furniture is as versatile as they comeﾗand they're a must-have for any modern dining room. Consider using a sideboard as a mini-bar, a place to set up your buffet of munchies, and a spot to store serving ware, table linens, extra wine glasses and more. Available in a range of sizes, styles and materials, there's a sideboard that works for every modern dining room.
