The Elements of a Modern Dining Room
Creating the dining room of your dreams is a matter of finding a few key furniture pieces you love, and then adding in just enough accents to make the room really pop!
As you can guess, the key component is the dining table. We know it's tempting to find the biggest table possible, especially when you focus on how often you host Thanksgiving, or wonder how you ended up with So. Many. In-laws!
But we're hoping to convince you to find a table suited to actually fit your home.
Contemporary Dining Sets
There's simply no way to create a sleek modern dining set if the furniture feels like it's too big for the room. We recommend leaving at least 42" around your entire table - anything less starts to feel cramped, and 48" is ideal!
Sometimes that means your ideal table only seats six, but you really need to seat eight for holidays... Enter the extension table!
Extension tables are an easy way to you to add two to four chairs around your table during the holidays, without having to commit to a massive table the rest of the year!
Round Dining Tables
Need help choosing a table shape? Some of the most classic dining set designs feature a round table. The classic tulip design from Saarinen comes to mind. This table shape makes a fantastic furniture centerpiece for most dining room sets, adding both classic style and versatility!
Kitchen, Dining Chairs
Next add chairs to create your very own contemporary dining room set. Usually you want 24" of table top per chair.
So, for example, if you go with a table that's a traditional 40" x 70", you can fit one chair at the head and foot of the table, and then two or three on each side. Six chairs would be ideal, eight would be just a little tight.
A circle or oval table works the same way - a 40" diameter table gives you about 125" of linear space (remember pi from middle school?). 125" divided by 24" gives you room for five seats!
But that's the easy part!
Once you know your seating capacity, you have to actually, you know, choose chairs you like. Keep in mind three easy approaches to choosing chairs for your style:
First, you can match them to the other furniture creating a simple, cohesive look typical in ultramodern and contemporary kitchen, dining and bar spaces.
Alternatively, you can choose a set of matching chairs that contrast with your table - picture a high gloss white table with walnut chairs. This approach gives the room more depth, and it's more typical in mid century mod kitchen dining spaces.
Finally, you can go more bohemian and choose a collection of mix and match chairs! Any approach will get you the mod table set you crave!
Completing Your Dining Sets
No dining room sets are complete without the decor and accents!
After you solve the puzzle of table, chair and seating capacity, get ready to choose your pendant lamp.
The options can be pretty overwhelming, but here's a few tips:
First, remember to choose a fixture in a finish that compliments the motif you're shooting for. Bronzes and golds are in style, especially if you want a bohemian, Scandi or mid-Century feel. However, if you're going for contemporary, stick with silvers like chrome or satin nickel.
Second, be sure your light fits the home. High ceilings are accented with larger fixtures, no doubt, but a huge lamp with more traditional 8' ceilings will make your room feel cramped.
Finally, regardless of the fixture you choose, spring for some dimmable LED bulbs and dimmer switch. The worst thing for a stylish home is surgical lighting!
Don't have the wiring for a cool pendant lamp? No worries! Try an arching floor lamp. These designs are perfect for lighting a table, without the hassle of hardwiring it to your home.
The final aspect of the dining set puzzle comes down to making the room work for you... both functionally and aesthetically! If you have room, a cool sideboard or display cabinet is a great component to add.
Not only will a buffet give you a good deal of extra storage for serving ware or even board games, but it will add an additional decorative layer into the room making the entire design feel more cohesive.
A rug, art and accents you love can add the finishing touches to your dining room furniture set. Add pops of color, or aim for a more classic feel with monochromatic pieces!
If you have an open concept home, tie your dining area into your modern living room furniture.
