The dining room is a central point for families. It’s where meals, conversations, and even game night happens. Taking on a Scandinavian theme, these Malaysian homes have curated dining areas that are simple yet breathtaking regardless of the amount of square metres.

Nordic countries treat the dining room as the heart of the home where families gather for hot meals and bonding time. The room often maintains a light and bright feel accompanied by simple décor with natural elements.

These Malaysian homeowners decided to emulate Nordic dining rooms, some of which have added charm and personality to the mix.

Although white rooms are a hallmark of Nordic design, you never have to shy away from colours. Take this dining room for instance, the designer opted for a simple dining table but added a pop of colour to the walls and décor to give the home a fresh and fun feel.

You can also opt to have a bit of both worlds like in this dining space. With mainly white walls and tiles in this open space, a pop of dark green was added to give some personality to the room.

It’s important to have as much natural light as possible but if you only have one natural light source, maximise it by opting for neutral shades just like in this condominium unit.

Similarly, this home opted for a simple base colour for its dining room and kitchen but added prominent décor like the statement pendant lights and bluish grey dining chairs to the mix.
