The dining room seems to be where all the entertaining happens. Whether it is for the immediate family, holiday dinners or intimate romantic dinners, the dining room is a special room. When decorating your dining room, we often forget about the flooring and the area rug that goes under the table. Believe it or not, the perfect area rug can make your room feel casual or formal, just by changing the rug. Here are tips for choosing the right one for your home.
What’s the shape of your dining room: While most would think a rectangular carpet should go in a rectangular room, there are often exceptions. Area rugs can take their cues from the space as well as the shape of the table that covers it. It is often a play on form and color when choosing the area rug. Decide what feels and looks right to you. Your dining room is your design preference and trends and design can be followed or broken.
Another core aspect of making your dining room look sizeable is the color palette. If you always believed that you were supposed to keep your spacially challenged rooms white, then here is some wonderful news for you. If you dont want drab paint that is boring, think about having a monochromatic interior design in a muted color, or combine different colors which all produce the same intensity. For a scheme that is more colorful consider blues and greens that all have an equal intensity or if you prefer a soothing ambiance think about a monochromatic color scheme of pale blues.
To add drama and depth, work on painting one wall a deep, intense tone - this gives it the impression of being further away along with adding an unusual charm. Pale colors will recede, therefore making the room seem larger and blueish gray is a great decorative paint color for a small room. But then if that sounds too colorless, dont despair cool colors like blues, greens and purples also recede so you can use your beautiful shades without making the room appear small sized.
By applying a particular decorating style, you can insert furniture and accessories which will make good use of the space in your dining room. Keep in mind design themes which allow for a variety of baskets and shelving since these can be used as extra storage. Deciding on a design you really can live with, however, is imperative as this is where you will be eating lots of meals.
Home buyers want much more than just a functional space to eat or share meals. As in the other parts of the home, buyers want a combination of form and function. What is particularly appealing would be a dining area that looks open and welcoming, and goes with the theme of the rest of the house, but also fulfills its main purpose of providing an area for the residents to eat. Dining room chairs are not merely furniture items for family members to sit during meals, but also complement the dining table and the rest of the dining area, and keep everyone comfortable while eating.
Modern dining chairs come in a vast range of designs and their chair backs can be simple dynamic, artistic and sadly mundane, with this in mind the most important choice you are going to make in terms of purchasing furniture is the look of the chair back, secondary will be the colour and the material it has been constructed in, whether that be wood, steel, chrome or MDF.
For contemporary dining rooms, suggestions would be chairs with thicker padding and covers including leather, suede, or synthetic materials, as these chairs look great with dark wood or clear glass tables. Another option for contemporary dining chairs would be benches or booth-style seating.
