Black Dining Room Furniture - Why Choose It?

Unlike kitchen diners which are central to family life, the dining room generally takes less of a leading role. In some cases the dining room is almost exclusively used for dinner parties and family get-togethers. This means you have more scope to get creative and produce dramatic designs in this room.

One way to get creative is by having black dining room furniture. This has a powerful visual effect and produces a very dramatic and eye-catching look to this space. It is also extremely versatile and can be mixed with a wide range of colour schemes - both warm, rich colours and more neutral palettes as well as any combination of accessories. It means the look of the dining room can be updated fairly regularly without having to change the furniture, which is great for those who love to entertain often but want to keep their dining room looking fresh.

Less is More

Black dining room furniture is chic and stylish and looks great in both modern and traditional homes. Keep decor and furniture to a minimum to create the biggest wow factor, so the whole focus is on the table and the dining experience. Use lighting to draw attention to the table such as a five or six light chandelier in a silver or black antique finish which will highlight the beauty of your dining room table.

You can team 4 Living’s black lacquer dining table with the cream leather dining chairs and the oriental sideboard large for a beautiful and elegant oriental feel to this space.

How to Accessorise

With clever use of accessories you can achieve a striking look. Ideally you should keep the floors and walls a lighter colour and make sure there is plenty of light coming in through the window to make your dining room bright and airy.

A room with just black furniture can look gloomy and depressing. Instead create a black and white contrast or inject other colours such as red, green or different shades of blue in the table runners, table accessories, or on the walls.

Don’t forget to use a mirror to bring the light in and use lighting wisely – to light up dark corners or brighten the room. You can also hang a chandelier above the table with stunning effect. Black is a good base to work with and can make the room feel cosy and inviting and is very relaxing for your diners.

Dressing your Table

If you are having a dinner party, one of the things you will be thinking about is how to dress your dining table. A table runner, table mats and coasters are a contemporary alternative to the table cloth and means that you can display your furniture to its full effect.

A centre piece display adds drama and a sense of occasion. If you are very creative, you could consider white feathers and silver baubles in a tall glass, or an eye catching red and white floral display. Alternatively candles or candelabras make fabulous centre pieces. Use only the best crockery – make sure there aren’t any chips as this is off-putting for your guests – and polish glass and silverware. Then voila! All your hard work will pay off as your creative skills are sure to impress your diners!
