Oak acts as a blank canvas, so that you can get creative with the overall look of your dining room. Carefully selected accessories and style choices mean you can achieve the perfect interior, whether you want a warm and traditional look, or a contemporary decor.

So, what are the style touches that are guaranteed to enhance your oak table and transform your home? Here we will take you through what to look for and how to create a dining room that reflects your personal style.

Choosing the Shape of Your Oak Table

The shape and design of the oak piece will an impact on the ambience and space of your dining room. Always measure your room and decide on a vision for your style before choosing the design. Here are some dining table shapes to consider:

Refectory Dining Tables: An oak refectory table is ideal for larger dining rooms that want to make a statement. The long, dramatic shape of refectory tables makes them a great choice for social occasions and family meals.

Round Oak Tables: Circular dining tables will create space in smaller rooms and add a traditional, farmhouse feel to your home.

Classic Dining Tables: Keep it sleek and simple with a classic design that doesn't fail to impress. Rectangular shapes and oval dining tables will look great in rooms of all sizes. To add a quirky twist, why not choose bold colours and reinvent this classic look?

The Finishing Touches

This is the fun part; finding finishing touches that will compliment your oak dining table and add personality. This doesn't always mean spending a fortune.

To discover unique dining room accessories, here's what to consider:

• Enhance the theme of your dining room and the design of your table. For example, if you have chosen a Gothic refectory table, why not choose colours and accessories that compliment this look?

• Try searching in places you wouldn't normally go to. This may be markets, charity shops or car boot sales. You will be surprised at what you could find!
