Trendy Dining Room Furniture – How to Create the Perfect Contemporary Dining Area

Out of all the rooms, the kitchen diner is by far the busiest as it is where the children gather and friends or family stop by for coffee and cake. So it is important that this area looks its best at all times. And, if you like to keep up to date with the contemporary furniture, trendy dining room furniture will give this space a boost.

Whether you are single or have a large family, the modern kitchen diner is on the go from morning until night; for breakfast right through to late night snacks. It is where you pack the children off to school in the morning and where they gather to do their homework after lessons and raid the fridge to fill their hungry tums.

While many modern homes have a kitchen diner, some have this and a separate dining room. This provides the benefit of both worlds: a kitchen area for informal dining and a dedicated area for family meals and hosting dinner parties. A separate dining room allows you greater freedom of design and, as the emphasis is more on aesthetics rather than practicality, trendy dining room furniture is a great choice for this space.

Whatever type of dining area you have, the furniture you choose should be functional as well as beautiful. Puji design and create stunning handcrafted furniture with this in mind, so our trendy dining room furniture is not only attractive, but also robust enough to suit the busiest family home.

Whether you are furnishing a dining room or kitchen diner, here’s how to create the perfect interior with Puji’s fantastic range of fashionable dining room furniture.

The Open Plan Dining Area

Whatever the size of your interior, you will want a stylish and fashionable dining area. Many modern homes have an open plan living room, kitchen and dining space; so for aesthetics and harmony, the furniture you choose for dining should also work well with the living room furniture.

If you have already furnished the living area, choose tables and chairs to complement this space. So if you have an existing light teak coffee table, for instance, choose a light teak dining room table and chairs to match and the same applies if you have a dark wood coffee table.

Often in an open plan dining area, the space is limited; look for small tables or extendable tables as these are the most practical. If you have an extendable table, a combination of chairs and stools means you can easily store the stools away when these are not in use and they can even double up as a side table!

A beautiful bookshelf or display cabinet can be used to store crockery, glassware and recipe books and is not only stunning, but functional too.  We have a fantastic range of trendy dining room furniture for the open plan dining area. These include teak tables in round, square or rectangular designs and extendable or pull out tables. We also have a beautiful selection of chairs, stools, book cases and display cabinets which are the perfect choice for a fashionable open plan dining space.

Many of our bookcases and display cabinets are suitable for storage and are attractive enough to double up as room dividers. If you prefer more of a light weight room divider, either our Cocostick Screen, or Jaya Screen, will make a fantastic accessory for a trendy open plan dining area.

The Kitchen/Diner

Kitchen diners are in constant use so they need to be fashionable as well as practical. Teak furniture is the ideal choice for a busy family home as it is extremely hardy, so it will keep its looks for decades.

If you want trendy dining room furniture for this space, think about furniture that will cover all eventualities. For example, a carved wooden chest may double up as a toy chest and can also serve as additional seating for the children, or for when friends or neighbours pop in for a cup of tea and a chat.

When it comes to choosing a family dining table, the chairs don’t have to match as long as they work with the rest of the furniture in this space (i.e. the kitchen cabinets). Chairs woven from rattan or banana skin are a fantastic option for a trendy kitchen diner and also have rustic appeal. You can mix and match woven chairs with wooden chairs or benches for an eclectic trendy look.

If practicality has more of an appeal, a mixture of woven chairs and a bench is a great solution in a busy kitchen diner as it provides additional seating on those occasions when you have a few extras for lunch.

Separate Dining Room

A separate dining room gives you more freedom for creativity as you can choose furniture for looks alone, rather than practicality. This is the space where you host diner parties or have family meals, so you can go for something fashionable, refined and elegant or go all out and create something spectacular.

Puji has a wide range of trendy dining room furniture and accessories for this area of the home, ranging from rustic tables and chairs, to stunning contemporary Suar wood dining tables for maximum impact. If an Oriental dining room is more your style, elegant Chinese black or white lacquered tables with matching soft leather chairs look stunning in this space and provide a feeling of tranquillity.

Whether it is a contemporary home or Chinese themed dining room that you are looking to create, we have a wonderful range of fashionable furniture to match our tables and chairs.  These include high quality hand-made side tables, bookcases, display cabinets and console tables. Finish the look with a few well chosen pieces of artwork and you will have the ultimate contemporary dining room.

Creating a fashionable dining room with the wow factor is all in the detail, so be sure to dress your new table to show it to its best effect. Use place mats or runners to protect the wooden surface and lay the table with polished glassware and cutlery, napkins and beautiful serving dishes.

For the centre piece, you can either create your own floral display or, if flower arranging is not your forte, make it simple and have glass bowl with baubles or floating candles. Lighting creates mood and atmosphere, so put the side lamps on and light candles just before the guests arrive and you will have a wonderful warm and welcoming environment for friends or family.
