In­tro­duce in­stant wow by hang­ing a strik­ing pen­dant light with big round bulbs in the cen­tre, right above your din­ing ta­ble. Items from your kitchen, like stacked boards, plates and fresh fruit, can make a lovely cen­tre­piece for your din­ing ta­ble. Benches make a din­ing room ca­sual – and up the seat­ing ca­pac­ity. Soften them with fur throws in win­ter or thin cush­ions in the warmer months. Freshen up a space with pops of green­ery, but try po­si­tion­ing them off to the side of the room, rather than just placed on a ta­ble. Mis­matched chairs give char­ac­ter to the room. Choose com­ple­ment­ing colours and have fun with the shape.
