The dining room is the heart of the home. This is where families gather for dinner, family reunions, homework help, and everyday chatting. Undeniably, there’s something special about the dining room — maybe it has to do with mealtimes, fond memories, and special moments.
No matter how you use your dining area, your room decor speaks volumes about you. In many cases, dining room inspiration overflows into other areas of the house, especially open communal areas like the living room and the hallways .
These themes can help foster specific ambiences in your dining room:
Vintage Feel for Classic Dining Room Inspiration
For more old-fashioned, down-to-earth types, a classic look is always in style. This dining room decor emphasizes that the room is a gathering area for mealtimes. Choose furniture and accessories that employ a balanced feel, and avoid major extremes. Create a timeless sense of contentment by using earth tones and lighter woods — this will instill a feeling of ease and comfort, and create a neutral base for elegant flourishes.
For a classic look, try out the Hyde Park collection, available through Signature Furniture Rental.
Sometimes a simpler, more streamlined look can really open up the dining area. Sleeker decor facilitates a more spacious, comfortable vibe that will encourage socializing, mingling, and chatting — all important aspects for quality bonding time!
To accomplish this look, opt for a less-bulky table, smaller place settings and centerpieces, and open space in the walkways to the kitchen. This allows for free flow of traffic and is great for when you have guests. For this look, try the Camden Picadilly Table or the Soho Pub Table, with matching seating options!
Formal Family-Style Design
For important gatherings and events like holidays, reunions, and other milestones, a sturdier dining table conveys an atmosphere of permanence and rootedness. It says, “This is where we always meet,” reminding diners of the long-lasting bonds of friends and family. Darker colored furniture and accessories channel a more formal vibe, just like a darker suit is often required for a formal dinner.
For special occasions and everyday presentability, the Soho Dining Table makes a lovely centerpiece for the dining room. It features a rich espresso-colored frame and an elegant carmel onyx top. The Knightsbridge chair series complements the Soho table beautifully, creating a sturdy look.
These are just a few themes you can use to express your individuality in the dining room, and renting furniture is a quick, hassle-free way to change up the ambiance in no time.

Your environment has a huge emotional and psychological impact on you. From the color on the walls to how you use the space (think: furniture arrangement) our environment influences our thoughts, moods, and perceptions. It also has a direct impact on how we work. Surgeons and accountants, for example, work better in low-ceiling rooms (it promotes focus and concentration), according to feng shui expert Ariel Joseph Towne. Creative people generally work better in large, open spaces with lots of natural light.
Our home interior, in particular, has a great deal of influence on us because of the amount of time we spend there and because it is truly our own space. Not only that, other people see our personal spaces as a reflection of who we are. This is why taking the time to design your space, or rearrange furniture, on a regular basis can actually make you feel better.
