Life at the moment has changed the way we work, the way we learn – and even the way we eat. All this extra time at home has given us the chance to slow down, sit at the table and spend quality time together tucking into home cooked meals.
If your dining room is busier than ever, why not make the most of your role as host and create your own home restaurant experience? By simply using items that you already have at home, and a little imagination, you can create a space where you can truly be the host with the most.
Here are some dining room ideas, with simple steps for your Micro Makeover, to make meal time more special than ever.
Set the mood
Sunday lunch? Date night? Birthday brunch? Whatever the occasion, the atmosphere sets the stage for your entire home restaurant experience.
The key to making your space more than just your dining room is finding the perfect combination of music, lighting and table settings. Get these just right and you’ll easily create a sense of comfort, intimacy and even romance.
A few simple dining room décor ideas include playing ambient music, lighting candles – or even crafting your own handmade place settings.
Takeaway Tip: Create a pretty place setting by tying a simple piece of string around a napkin with a sprig of your favourite herb or foliage from your garden.
