The dining room is where the whole family gathers for lunch, dinner and special occasions. This room witnesses a lot of laugher, good times and even happy news, for the sake of all of these amazing times, you need to make this room’s designs as special as these times.
Choosing the dining set is the most important and exciting step in designing the entire dining room, that is why you should consider some tips to make the right choice. The first tip will be buying a dining set that fits your dining room’s space. For example, if you have a small dining room, then an oval or rounded table sounds more than perfect and if your dining room is big enough to take a bigger table, a square one sounds like the best to go for.
You will find variety of materials to choose from when you search for a dining set like, wood, metal, glass and leather. There is no right choice in this point, because it will be only up to your personal taste. Just pay attention if you have kids, because in this case a glass dinning table won’t sound like a good choice for the safety of your kids, you know kids don’t stop moving or running, right?
When you choose the dining set, it’s important to look for cozy chairs that provide you with the enough comfort you need while you are eating. The chairs that have cushion back and seat will be a comfortable choice, leather chairs are an amazing choice as well, they look so luxurious plus being easy to clean.
The color and the design of the dining set that you choose should be matching with the color and the design of the room in which you will put the set in to create a sense of harmony in your dining room. When you arrange the dining set, you need to consider some important points like; the space between the chairs should be enough to avoid kicking each others elbows during eating times. The space around the table should also be enough, so you can move freely and to have enough space to pull the chairs out.
Ok, so what about the design of the dining room itself, any ideas? Yes, of course and we will start with choosing the painting colors. When you decide on painting your dining room, go for soft and light colors like, white, beige, light yellow, light grey, pastel etc. These colors won’t only enhance the warm ambience of your dining room, but they will also fit any design you choose whether modern, traditional or even rustic, they also give the feeling of an extra space if you have a small dining room.
Moving to the lighting, providing your dining with enough natural lighting is the most important tip that you should consider when you design your dining room. Make sure to choose a room that has at least two small windows or one big window; the natural lighting has an incomparable effect that no other lighting fixture can give. There is no doubt that you will also need some extra lighting sources and that is what we will be talking about now.
Choosing the lighting fixtures should be like choosing the colors, soft and warm. First, you will need to hang a lighting fixture above the dining table and for sure a crystal or drum chandelier sounds like a nice choice. You can also hang a cage or crystal pendant, these lighting fixtures come with amazing designs and their lighting is so soft and warm as well.
The dining table’s lighting will be the main lighting fixture, but not the only one; you can also hang couple of wall sconces on the both sides of a picture, window, mirror or even a buffet. Speaking of the buffet, if you decided to put a buffet in your dining room, you can replace the wall sconces with two table lamps and put them on the top of the buffet. It will be amazing as well if you hang a nice mirror above it, imagine the mirror reflecting the light of the table lamps, sounds perfect right?
Adding a mirror to your dining room design won’t only enhance and reflect its beauty, but it will also make the room look bigger which would be a good solution for you if you’re have a small dinning room. You know what! You can also hang a mirror above a fireplace in your dining room, did I just say fireplace? Yes, putting a fireplace in your dining room is such a great idea; that is of course if you have enough free space for it.
The fireplace will enhance the warm ambience that you want to achieve in your dining room and it will keep you warm in cold winter nights. Choosing the right fireplace design will be according to your dining room’s design and don’t worry there are variety of designs that will match the design of your dining room.
