Creating the Perfect Dining Room
Dining rooms are one of the most important rooms in a house. Having meals together is one of the best ways to connect as a family as It is during this time that the family sit together & catch up on each others’ days. It is a special room because its not just for everyday, but the dining room is also where Christmas dinner is enjoyed, and Thanksgiving Feasts are served… its where memories are made! Therefore, the dining room décor should radiate warmth and positive vibes so that even guests will feel at home.
Whether you’re completely refurnishing your dining room or just updating your space, there are a few points to consider.
What’s Your Style?
Contemporary or modern, traditional or rustic, farmhouse or industrial, transitional or mid-century – there are dining room choices to suit every style. While you may not fall firmly within a certain style, narrowing down your taste can make it easier to move forward in your decisions.
The modern contemporary furniture style is often minimalist, with metal accents, clean lines, and geometric shapes.
The traditional furniture style features ornate detailing, patterned upholstery, plush fabrics, and rich wood tones,
Also known as casual, the transitional furniture style combines elements from both modern and traditional styles to create a balanced, blended look. This casual transitional design styles combines the sleek lines of modern design with the more ornate curves of traditional design.
What’s about Size & Shape?
Although the size and shape of your dining room will not determine the style of furniture, but you should consider that especially when choosing larger items like dining tables. Not only does the furniture you choose need to fit comfortably within the space, but different furniture arrangements and décor ideas can make a room feel larger or smaller.
Dining Room Essentials:
Dining Table: A dining room is not a dining room without a table! However, there are so many different table sizes, shapes, and styles to choose from when choosing the right dining table for your needs. When it comes to size, consider how much space you have and how much space it needs. If you host holidays dinners but only have small family meals everyday, you might want to consider an expandable dining table that can size up or down depending on how many seats you need.
Dining Chairs: The dining table on its own is not very good, you need to be able to sit at the table. With so many styles to consider, we recommend choosing chairs that coordinate with the style of your table. Why not incorporate dining benches or even stools in a small space. When choosing dining room chairs, take into consideration your needs—like comfort level, durability, and materials. Since dining can be messy, you’ll probably want chairs that are easy to clean and can endure some wear and tear.
Dining Room Accents & Accessories Even though dining room accents and accessories are not essential to the use of the dining room but including them in your design can greatly increase the appearance and functionality of your dining room. Its all the finishing touches that make your room feel complete, styled, and beautiful. Who doesn’t want a beautiful dining room?
Cabinets and shelving are great multipurpose pieces for dining room storage. You can display decorative objects, create a bar area, or place a lamp for layering lighting in your dining room and they also offer lots of storage space for linens or extra dishes or serving pieces.
LED Candles: are a great way to add ambient lighting for romantic or cozy dinners or to simply make the evening feel a little more special.
Wall Art Whether it’s a painting, a woven tapestry, or a family photo gallery wall, art will add a personal touch to your dining room. You can use wall art to pull in colours that are used elsewhere in the space to help it feel more cohesive.
Table Centerpiece can be anything from a ceramic vase of flowers or a small plant to a bowl of lemons or a display of candles all the way to whatever else you can dream of! Whatever it is, having something decorative one the table can make your dining room feel finished and special.
