Our guide to furnishing your dining room with beautiful teak furniture
A teak filled dining room will be both a pleasure to use and entertain in. Your dining table will be one of the most important pieces you purchase for this room and will create a focal point for your guests. However is still has to be functional, comfortable and sociable.
The Puji range of solid teak dining tables are robust, simple in design, elegant and unique. We even have modern square and round tables, which are popular in contemporary homes as they eliminate the ‘head of the table’. We offer extending tables for those who like to entertain but want to save space when the table is not in use.
For those who want a rich toned dining room, introducing a modern dark wood table can be the way forward. Dark wood dining tables really capture the beautiful look of rich contemporary styling and for those wanting a formal setting just team these tables with a set of dark leather upholstered chairs to complete the richness of your dining experience.
When furnishing the dining room you’ll need to consider storage space for a modern dining room. A display unit can offer a practical storage cupboard underneath with an open shelving section that can allow for your favourite pieces to be on show. Sideboards are also a firm favourite and will ensure that you have everything close to hand and you won’t have to run and fetch things.
Remember when furnishing your dining room that dark wood furniture has a rich, inviting appeal but can seem to close in a space. If you choose to go for a dark wood colour scheme, then try complementing it with natural coloured flooring and walls. Shutters on windows that are stained to a warm tone also contrast beautifully with neutral walls and allow the passage of light to be controlled. The subtle use of lighting and mirrors can also be used to create an ambient relaxed feel to the dining room.
Remember to dress your dining table, choosing new dining table accessories can improve the look of the room and add a sense of chic style. Invest in a new table runner, placemats and a decorative centerpiece such as a candelabra or large platter.
