9 Must-Have Furniture and Accessories for Your Dining Room
There is something special about our kitchen and dining room. It is not only the place where we savor delicious food but it is also the perfect setting for meaningful conversation and good memories. But this only becomes possible, if you have the right dining room furniture around you.
From tables and chairs to storage and lighting – every piece in the dining area plays a part in creating a functional and beautiful space. This may sound overwhelming, but we promised that we’ll make it easier with our furniture guide.
On this page, we look at all the essential pieces that every dining room needs. We will also include dinning accessories and utensils that will keep your space functional as it is beautiful. Let this guide give you some ideas for creating a perfect dining space.
1. Dining table
The dining table is the centerpiece of any dining room. We recommend investing in a strong and durable table that can withstand your daily use. A solid wooden table is an ideal choice, but this depends on your preferences. Just make sure that the dining table you pick is functional and can accommodate your whole family and guests.
If you regularly host a party at home, the general rule of thumb is to have a dining table at least 72 inches long. This size is enough to give at least 24 inches of space per person at the table.
2. Dining chairs
Of course, a dining setup would not be complete with a dining chair. Always choose a chair that is just the right size for the table. In choosing a chair for your dining area, your goal should always provide a comfortable seat for everyone.
We also recommend choosing a chair that complements the design of your dining table. Now if you find a hard time looking for the right table and chair individually, you can always go for a dining set. Our recommendation is the Qoncept Oriental Dining Table. This is a metal frame table that already includes 4 seats. The table is 120 x 67 cm but it also has a smaller version of 40x43 cm. The minimalist design will complement any modern-style dining area.
A cabinet is a multi-purpose piece of furniture. It is a versatile and practical choice for any dining area. Not only can it provide ample storage for all your kitchenware and accessories, but it also allows you to showcase your precious decors.
Cabinets come in various sizes and styles, making them dining essentials for any home. Try the Vermont Kitchen Dinnerware Glass Cabinet from Qoncept. This flexible piece comes in different sizes and can add an elegant touch to any room.
4. Statement centerpiece
For a sophisticated look, don’t forget to add a table centerpiece. This dining accessory is the focal point of your table, and it ties together all the elements of your setup. Choose a centerpiece that enhances the ambiance of the whole room. You can go for candle pillars, potted plants, or even a bouquet of flowers.
On the other hand, if you want a centerpiece that is functional as it is beautiful, we recommend the Olivia Organizer. It is an attractive piece that provides a perfect place for your fruits. With its size, it can fill the empty space on the table.
Shelves are a great alternative for dining rooms that cannot house a cabinet. What makes shelves an ideal piece of furniture for the dining room is their storage capability that does not take up valuable floor space. It is also easier to install than other bulky furniture out there.
If you want a shelf that also offers decorative elements, we recommend the Wyatt Foldable Metal Shelf from Qoncept Furniture. It features a sleek, modern design that is perfect for contemporary dining rooms. The Wyatt Foldable Metal Shelf is versatile and easy to move with its 360-rotating wheels.
6. A good lighting
Good lighting can enhance the ambiance of your dining room. It can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, which is essential for creating a comfortable and enjoyable dining experience. A well-lit dining room can also highlight the beauty of your furniture and décor.
More than the aesthetic, the right lighting also helps protect your other dining room furniture. It helps avoid spills and messes around your table. This is especially important during the evening.
7. Dinnerware, glassware, and utensils
Since dinnerware and utensils are small things, no one really pays attention to them. In fact, many are settling for mediocre materials. But these are essential elements in all dining rooms. You should never overlook these small things as they can balance out your setup.
Believe it or not, the right dinnerware and utensils can enhance the overall presentation of your meal. The right plate or bowl can make your food look even more appetizing. Using the right utensils, on the other hand, can make it easier for you to enjoy them.
In short, your dinnerware and utensils can elevate your everyday dining experience. If you want to get items that add style and personality to your setup, visit the Qoncept dinnerware section. From plates and bowls to cups and saucers, we offer complete sets perfect for any occasion.
