The dining room is one of the highlights of your home. We usually spend time in this area when eating with our family and friends, enjoying home cooked feasts, and ends with a hearty discourse. As much as possible, we want our dining room to be spic-and-span clean, remarkably impressive, ready to ignite anyone's appetite. But other than filling the stomach is filling the visuals; how about copping off a look from industrial edgy dining rooms and recreate your eating experience?
But first, we need to know one thing: what makes a dining room edgy? Is it the colour? The decor? The furniture? The flooring? The lighting? True enough, there are many key aspects to crafting an edgy dining room, and you can make yours too, just by following the tips and tricks from these remarkable dining spaces:
Raw & Rugged
This visually pleasing dining room takes a page from the standard industrial look, where concrete walls and wood textures merge harmoniously with one another, recreating a beautifully raw interior. We like the simple and basic feel of this dining room, complemented with retro chairs and minimal decorations. A couple of large industrial pendant lights overhead. There is a large piece of art work and wall lights on the feature wall which softens the hard, masculine look of the space. Copy this look for a raw and rugged dining room.
The immaculate white can also be edgy, as seen in this dining room interior. Splashes of strong greens and browns radiate through the white canvass, thanks to the decorative plants, furniture and flooring. The white modern stools add a chic taste to the design, and the pendant lights offer a subtle accent, without taking away the focus from the minimalist beauty of this dining room.
Tip:White goes best with anything, especially brilliant tones. Go minimal on the accents and stay to a palette of at most, four hues.
You’re My Type
Large graphics, bold colours, chic furniture and a lot of attitude; this is what this dining room is all about. Round, copper pendant lights hang from the high-ceiling, creating a lovely accent to the red and black tones. The table is rather simple white, but the chairs are already mismatched. Creative, curious and intelligent, we list this space as one of the best edgy dining rooms we’ve seen around.
Tip: Too much decoration can divert one’s attention from the food. If you have chosen an illustrated wall, minimize accents on the table.
For the sentimental and romantic, this dining room with a soft, countryside charm will be a perfect idea. Draped with many raw, wooden textures, ceramic ornaments and fresh fruits and blooms, your cosy eating space will become a hearty area for family bonding. Here, exposed brick textures are seamlessly infused with the white paint and wooden accents. Metal decors, such as the retro pendant lights, bring a nice, vintage feel.
Tip:Don’t be afraid to play with textures. Blend smooth and rough items under the same colour motif. In this design, you can see the great combination between earthy, neutral textures and the pewter colours.
Tropical, I Take It
Dark browns, blacks and greens come together in this lovely dining nook. This great mix of industrial and tropical ambiance delivers an impressive feeling of being in a restaurant. High beams, exposed bricks, and urban furniture adds to the sophisticated feel of this space. Here, plants make the statement; this is perfect for the homeowner who loves to have their favourite vines and succulents within their interiors.
Tip:A few solitary pendant lights can turn a space into a dazzling, ethereal interior. Add three or four by your nook to recreate the atmosphere.
Release your inner sailor and cop off this edgy dining room. Embellished with many marine elements—the lifesaver, the painting, the sailor chairs and the single red stool—this unusual space shares a peek of the ocean life without taking too much of the area. A solitary pendant hung from above, but the large windows offer daylight illumination during morning to noonday snacking.
Tip: This is the case of “making things work”. Despite the variety of colours, the items all have the same theme and synchronizes well with the rest of the interior.
Ever wondered how it feels to be permanently on a holiday? Well, this unique dining space offers you the same atmosphere, without requiring you to leave your own home. Clothed in neutral tones, this rather earth-inspired space will bring you back to the memories of your best vacation by the beach. The rattan pendant lamp makes a bold statement atop the raw wooden table and bench set. Adding some colours are a few potted plants and magazines.
Tip:Add a splash of colour to neutral tones! Greens, reds and yellows are considered as appetizers. Choose these colours for your accents and set your family’s appetite on fire!
Everything in Black and White
This colour pairing is a classic and will never go out of style. Here, blends of white, black and grey accents come together enveloped in a chic striped rug. Other than providing a modern, fashionable accent, the rug also “designates” the area, making the corner more discernible. Retro ceiling lights and potted plants with white flowers adds a soft sweetness to the otherwise brazen, contemporary interior.
