A dining room is the only room at home that can be used for formal get-together as well entertainment. The dining table and chairs are the hero in most of these designs and that’s why you should consider these for your HDB or condo. With the dining room design in place, your home is going to be ready for parties and family gatherings alike.

Dining Room Design #1: The Sleek Space

A pop of colour for your dining area

The anchor feature of this dining area are the handless and sleek chairs that complement the straight-lined dining table perfectly. There is enough room in this dining space for meals and catch-ups with your mates. A crockery unit on the side makes sure that all the crockery is stowed out of sight. All you need now are friends, family, food and conversation to get going.

Dining Room Design #2: Essentially Scandinavian

Country-style feels for this home

This layout combines the living and dining spaces with ease. The false ceiling with classic black drop lights visually demarcate the dining area from the living room. Wooden table couple with a bench and chairs make for the perfect dining set. A very country-style look, this is ideal for families who love eating and chilling together.

Dining Room Design #3: The Space-saver

Smart foldable dining table

A Singapore essential, this space-saving design incorporates a foldable wooden dining table. So you don’t have to worry about blocked space any more. Whenever you feel the need to use the dining area, just unfold the table and place chairs around it. We love the Scandinavian vibe of this home and this area makes it every bit minimalist as well. So you have enough floor space when you’re not using this small dining area design.

Dining Room Design #4: Warm Hues

Fill your dining area with warm colours

Does your HDB or condo enjoy a great view and ample sunlight? Then this dining room design is made for you. Maximise on sunlight by placing mirror panels on the wall in your dining area. To complement the warmth, opt for light tan dining chairs and a simple dining table like this one. Complete the look with a rug and abstract wall treatment on the other wall. You will love the compliments you receive for this.

Dining Room Design #5: An Edgy Space

Give it an industrial edge with this look

A Singapore staple, the combined kitchen and dining area is a practical choice for most HDBs and condos. But make it count by opting for a dining table cut out of stone and give it an edge by playing around with the shape. A round table is a great choice to make the space look stylish. Another feature to add to your dining area is lighting and the bubble lamps used here are so unique.
