The placement of a round dining table can significantly influence the ambiance of your dining area, making it a crucial step in designing unique home interiors.

Consider these tips to find the ideal location:

  • Center of the Room: In spacious dining areas, place your round dining table in the centre. This position allows for easy movement around the table and serves as a focal point. This makes a grand statement, facilitating an inclusive dining experience.

  • Corner Placement: For a more intimate setting, place your table in a cozy corner adorned with natural home decor, such as potted plants or a woven wall hanging, to create a snug and inviting nook. A corner near a window can also provide a scenic backdrop.

  • Open-Plan Living: Define the dining area within an open-plan space by centring your round dining table, ensuring it acts as a natural transition between living zones without interrupting the flow.

2. Styling Your Round Dining Table with Handmade and Natural Elements

Incorporating handmade home decor and natural materials is key to creating a dining space that feels both personalised and connected to the natural world.

Here's how to enhance the look of your round dining table:

  • Centrepieces: A statement centerpiece, like a vase of fresh flowers or a unique sculpture, can draw the eye and anchor the table. Opt for low-profile decorations to maintain visibility and conversation flow across the table.

  • Table Settings: Mix and match tableware to add character. Layer plates, use textured napkins, and select flatware that complements the table’s style. Round tables work well with circular placemats or coasters to echo the table's shape.

  • Lighting to Set the Mood: Hang a pendant light or chandelier above your round dining table to illuminate the space and add sophistication. The light fixture should be centred over the table to enhance the ambiance and provide even lighting. Suspend a rattan lampshade above your table to cast a warm, inviting glow over your meals, enhancing the overall ambiance of your home.

  • Chairs: Select chairs that match the table's height and style. Consider chairs with soft curves to mimic the table’s roundness, creating a harmonious look. For a vibrant touch, choose chairs in varying colors or materials. If your round dining table is wooden, natural materials, like wood or rattan, complements the table's form and adds to the cohesive aesthetic of natural home decor.

3. Creating the Perfect Atmosphere

The final touch in styling your round dining table involves creating a welcoming atmosphere:

  • Rugs: Choose a circular rug made from natural fibres to place under your table, grounding the dining area and adding a layer of texture and warmth. Ensure the rug is large enough so chairs can be pulled out comfortably.

  • Colour Scheme: Opt for colors that complement the room and the table itself. Soft, neutral tones can create a serene dining environment, while bold colours can make a dramatic statement.

  • Personal Touch: Infuse your dining space with items that have personal significance, such as heirloom pieces, travel souvenirs, or handmade crafts. This adds a story and depth to your dining space, making I uniquely yours.

Styling a round dining table is about balancing form and function while creating an inviting space for meals and gatherings. By choosing the right position, enhancing your table with beautiful styling, and creating a warm atmosphere, your dining area can become a cherished space in your home, reflecting your personal style and the stories behind your decor choices. Remember, each piece of furniture is not just an item in your room but a part of your home's story, much like the unique stories behind every 'piece of Bali' we cherish at The Bali Concept.
