Defining a space: If you have an open area dining room that shares a space with a living room or kitchen area, an area rug will help you define the dining room without using walls. Choose a rug that uses colors from adjoining spaces but still defines the space. Therefore a mixture of neutrals from the surrounding rooms with a punch of an accent color to match the dining room chairs would be perfect.
They say that the idea of having a dining room and using it to entertain is dying out, but that is very hard to believe when you start to look at the wonderful modern dining furniture available today. Modern dining furniture in the 21st century is stylish, comfortable and beautifully made and the choice of finishes, colours and styles on offer will make even the most choosy individual smile.
