As we approach the holiday season, our thoughts turn to hosting, entertaining, and offering guests a lovely experience when dining at our homes.

 

Aside from providing delicious food and drink, the number one thing we all need is a dining room that can accommodate our needs and showcase our style — an elegant dining room never goes out of style.

 

While it’s true that elegance, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, there are many components that will help you achieve an elegant result.

 

Here are a few key elements to achieve an elegant dining room:

 

Dining Room Sideboard

 

 

A sideboard, sometimes called a buffet, is an extremely useful piece of furniture. Available in a broad range of styles, a sideboard is a key addition to an elegant dining room.

 

Sideboards serve many helpful purposes, including:

  • Offering additional food serving space.
  • Acting as a bar cart.
  • Providing a display area for flowers, decor, and photos.
  • Storing items such as candles, serving utensils, extra plates, and more.

Hooker Furniture crafts gorgeous sideboards ranging from classic elegance in wood to more modern styles featuring chrome and brass, as with the Curata Wine Server (pictured above).

 

Dining Room Hutch

 

A hutch is certain to bring elements of formality and elegance into your dining room.

 

Typically a larger item, a hutch will consist of an upper section offering several shelves for storage or display, with either glass doors or open shelving. It may also provide additional shelving behind closed doors on the bottom section.

 

Hutches, like the gorgeous Bermex hutch pictured above, can be used to showcase any number of items, including:

  • Fine china
  • Serving platters
  • Vases
  • Decorative items
  • Artwork
  • And more

While not every room is large enough to incorporate a hutch, if your dining room has the space, then adding a hutch can make for a gorgeous focal point.

 

Elegant Touches

 

 

Whether you’ve decided to update your entire dining room, or just a single piece of furniture, the one thing every elegant dining room needs is a finishing touch. A finishing touch is any decorative item, functional or not, that adds style and interest to your space.

 


 

We recommend the following types of elegant touches to finish your dining room:

  • Candles holders
  • Vases
  • Oversized platters
  • Nesting dishes
  • Sculptures

 

Variety is the spice of life, so remember to change up your finishing touches from time to time — this will help to freshen up your space.
