Think Dining Areas are Boring? These SG Homes Prove Otherwise

See how these 7 Singaporean homeowners have chosen to creatively define their dining spaces. Be inspired by these local (yes, local) homes!

Height of Luxury

Landed Jln Gelenggang | Y-Axis ID

The 8-seater dining set has been strategically placed beneath a double volume ceiling in this landed property. An avant-garde lampshade and modern candelabra create a sense of occasion at every mealtime.

Dual Function

Condominium OUE Twin Peak | Rezt & Relax Interior

Is it a dining table? Is it an island counter? It’s both! Remove the chairs and the cook has extra preparation space. Note the handy open shelving at the end – large enough to store canisters of dried goods and even small kitchen appliances.

Mismatched Magic 

HDB 3 Room Blk 70B Telok Blangah Heights | Swiss Interior Design Pte Ltd

This homeowner has pulled off the ‘shabby chic’ look to perfection. The strategically mismatched chairs create the illusion of having been pulled together from thrift shops and family castoffs, yet the nett effect is anything but haphazard.

Opposites Attract

Condominium Granduer 8 | Love Home Interior Design Pte Ltd

This homeowner has created a striking statement by boldly pairing two off-white chairs with two black ones. The chairs’ colours are picked up by the smoky black glass tabletop and chunky off-white table legs. A leather-look tiled panel, flanked by mirrors, intensifies the visual drama.

Dining Inside the Box

Condominium 21 Fernvale Close | Starry Homestead Pte Ltd

The dining area in this luxuriously light-filled condominium is clearly defined by an inlaid section of timber flooring. The wooden theme is picked up by the chunky wooden legs of the dining table, and complemented by the distressed natural leather dining chairs. A chic industrial light fitting adds character without obstructing the flood of natural sunlight.

Small is Beautiful

Condominium 52 Lakeside Drive Caspian | Albedo Design Pte Ltd

A mirrored wall creates the illusion of extra depth in this compact dining area. While it may not optimise the space, the bold choice of a circular marble table and leather dining chairs promotes intimate dinner party conversation that no doubt prolongs the evening gatherings.

Dining In, Outside

Condominium Beacon Heights | Noble Interior Design Pte Ltd

The homeowner has enclosed the spacious balcony of their corner unit and turned it into a novel dining area with a 180-degree view of the neighbourhood. The marble-topped kopitiam table and chairs sit ever so comfortably with the typically Singaporean skyline – the perfect venue for Chinese family reunion dinners!
