Invest in a showstopping reclaimed wood dining table

The right reclaimed wood dining table and chairs will set the tone for your dining space. The Glasgow reclaimed wood furniture range provides bags of style, with a tabletop produced from gorgeous reclaimed elm, in a "diamond" pattern, set on glamorous silver legs. This can be paired with the wooden sideboard from the same range, again created from reclaimed elm. The sideboard doors are finished in a "sunshine" design with glitzy silver insets and door handles-  a perfect mix of rustic and luxury.

Add a dining bench

Combine wooden benches with upholstered dining chairs. A reclaimed wood table and bench set will certainly bring a more relaxed feel to the dining room, they can also be dressed with cushions and throws for an added touch of luxury and comfort. Alternatively, you can opt for a more formal leather dining bench with back but pair it with wooden chairs to keep a casual air.

Add some storage space 

No room will ever have a luxurious feel if it is cluttered. This additional storage can come in the shape of a dining room sideboard - a perfect place to hide away your serving dishes and other dining room bits and bobs. Style this with earthy accessories to introduce a rustic and relaxed element to your dining room. Reclaimed wood shelves are another storage option - great for occasional use decorative serving dishes that you want to keep on show.

Luxurious lighting

A sparkling chandelier or sleek pendant light can add an instant touch of luxe to the room. Hanging over a simple reclaimed wood table and bench, it will add height to the room and give it instant elegance.

Wonderful wall art

Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder! Add some wall art that appeals to you, whether it is a simple landscape or some funky pop art. This will add a personal touch to the room. Oversized mirrors also add a touch of glamour to a room. You can bring back the relaxed element by keeping the walls neutral, adding houseplants, natural textures and warm earthy tones.
