9 Stylish and Easy Ideas to Decorate Your Dining Table


  1. Take a Minimalist Approach

Even if you have a 10 seater dining table or 12 seater dining table, you should avoid clutter. That’s very important because clutter, even if it consists of nice decorative pieces, can make the room look messy. It will also make the table feel too crowded and uncomfortable.

So, avoiding clutter and taking a minimalist approach can be an easy way to make the dining room look better. This also takes very little effort because you just have to be more selective with the pieces you choose. So, take everything off the table, start over, and pick pieces that make a statement without overwhelming the space.

  1. Choose an Accent Piece

Avoiding clutter doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, though! If you want your dining table to be noticed and set the tone for the rest of the room, consider getting a big centerpiece. It’s the best way to make a statement and there are many eye-catching pieces to choose from.

Whether that’s a huge vase, an urn, or a big, lovely bowl featuring seasonal elements, your dining table will come to life. This is a particularly good idea for a black round dining table or a white round dining table. Adding a big piece can elevate the table and the room without much effort.


  1. Find a Nice Area Rug

Adding an area rug to your dining room can be a great way to ground the space and define it. Plus, it’s a good way to add a pop of color. Of course, the rug you choose should depend on the style you want the room to have.

For example, if you have a Hamptons style dining table and you want a sophisticated, coastal feel, there are many options to choose from. Focus on rugs with neutral color palettes and simple yet striking designs like patterns, nautical elements, etc.


  1. Use Faux Floral Arrangements

Faux floral arrangements are a classic for a reason. It’s a reliable option that can look good with any home decor style. All you have to do is choose the kind of flowers and colors that complement the dining table and overall ambiance. When it comes to faux flowers, we recommend investing in high-quality options made with long-lasting materials.

The flowers must look real instead of plastic, which is why investing in good materials is worth it. You will be able to find good options within your budget, just take the time to look. Then, choose a nice vase and create your own arrangements. It will be easy to switch things up from time to time.

  1. Decorate with Candles and Candlesticks

Candles are another tried and true way to decorate a dining table. A farmhouse dining table can benefit greatly from candles, especially if you set them on stands or candlesticks.

Grouping candles of different sizes and shapes it’s a great way to create a nice centerpiece. You can also add other elements to the centerpiece, like flowers, leaves, oversized beads, and more.


  1. Create a Nice Vignette

When you place a few items on a basket, bowl, or tray, it can bring the entire dining room to life. A terrazzo dining table will look great with a vignette, but you can also make them with any kind of style in mind. When you’re creating a vignette, it’s important to use large items that can be fully appreciated.

If you use small trinkets, they won’t catch the eye as much or be noticeable enough. Especially not if the dining table is large. To create a nice vignette, we recommend choosing a theme or color palette and going from there. For example, your theme can be seasonal, which gives you a wide range of items to use.

  1. Use Tableware as Decor

Yes, tableware can be used as decoration, it’s not just functional. This is particularly true when there are special occasions such as birthday dinners, holiday gatherings, and more. In those situations, your tableware can make a statement.

For example, you can get tableware sets of specific themes like Christmas or invest in beautiful, ornamental pieces.  You can also play with tableware by mixing and matching different styles. It still needs to be cohesive to look good, but it’s not difficult to achieve. Everything on your dining table can make a statement, from the plates to the table mats and everything in between.


  1. Showcase Fruits and Vegetables

This is another classic option and it’s very effective. Displaying fruits and vegetables on your dining table is a great way to use what you already have available. You just need a bowl or a basket to put the items in.

Fruits like lemons, limes, grapes, apples, pears, peaches, and pomegranates look amazing. When it comes to vegetables, you can use peppers, radishes, onions, carrots, and even cabbage can be good options.

  1. Choose High-Quality Table Linens

While dining tables can look amazing without them, table linens are an easy way to dress up the table. Now, it can be a bit overwhelming to find the right table linen. To make the search easier, settle on a color palette and style.

You want the table linens to look consistent, so consider the style of the table itself and the ambiance you want to create. That will help you narrow down the options in terms of color, design, material, and more.
