Since the pandemic changed our lives, we are looking at ways we can use the space in our homes better. It is no secret that over the last two years as the home became our safe place and sanctuary more than ever before and the nation has collectively spent millions of pounds upgrading inside and out. One of the biggest investment areas is the combined open plan kitchen, diner, living room.
Spending time as a family has always been important and post-pandemic many of us realised just how much we enjoy this time together and how easily it was skipped pre-pandemic. With everyone now back at school and heading into the office, the only real opportunity we get to join as a family in modern-day is over dinner around the dining table. With mealtimes being so central to our interaction with family and friends, we think it's worth making this space somewhere that makes a statement.
Bold dining tables that shakeup a room and make it the centre of the home is an upward trend, and why not? Here we look at our pick of large dining tables that are there to be noticed and enjoyed.
