Creating an inviting dining space, where guests will love to linger is as essential as your cooking skills. Here are a few tips we think will go towards helping to create a space you will be proud of.

1
Leave 'formal' for weddings and corporate dinners. A relaxed atmosphere means relaxed guests. Who cares about where exactly should the dessert fork sit on the dining table? Just tuck in and enjoy.


2
Room is everything. Make sure you have enough room around your dining table for people to comfortably walk behind the dining chairs or benches. There is nothing more oppressive than walls closing in on you when you are trying to have a dinner party.


3
Open plan. If you have the option, locate your dining area close to the kitchen, preferably as an open plan space. This way, you can still chat with your guests when preparing the next course. Cooking smells add to the experience
.
4
Comfy bottoms are happy bottoms. Cushions, sheep skin rugs or padded dining chairs - anything you can think of to make your guests comfortable. You do not want them to fidget with pins and needles as soon as they have finished their main course, do you?


5
Light it up. A low hung chandelier or two over the dining table are a perfect way to shed light on the occasion. Complement with candles for added ambiance.

6
Your table is the star of the evening. Apart from your cooking of course. Leave table covers for hotels. These days it's all about stunning dining tables, so make sure yours is just that.


7
Have an extra space for odds and sods. A console table is a perfectly unobtrusive space for those things you may need but don't have space for on the table. Like the roast beef tray once you carved it. Someone  will probably want seconds.

8
Softness underfoot. It is more and more common to have stone or wood floors and ask people not to wear shoes in your house. It is your house after all. Place a cow hide under the dining table to keep your guests' feet comfortable and warm.

9
Room with a view. If you can, locate your dining area near a window to let natural light in. Add interesting art or wall lights on the walls to add interest.

10
White and clear should be the rule for dining crockery and glassware. Nothing detracts from your culinary creation more than a heavily patterned plate. That is not quite the case with tea, however. Somehow, tea tastes best from fine bone china with a delicate floral pattern.
