From minimalist decor to practical and functional furniture, a Scandi style dining room is a smart choice for many people.
Dining rooms are often overlooked but they are quite an important room to design for. You need to think about purchasing a solid dining room table, comfortable dining chairs and create a functional environment for consuming meals.
Scandinavian Dining Rooms
Scandinavian decor has become extremely popular around the world for its practical mix of functional design and beautiful form. Scandinavian dining rooms often feature neutral-colored dining tables in hues like light brown, white or black.
The design of the furniture is often very simple and practical.
For the dining chairs, you could find Wishbone chairs or even mid-century modern side chairs present. To the side, you may see a simple minimalist console table or buffet.
