Your dining room is a magical place. By day it is one room that should create the illusion of perfection, and by night it should be inviting for both family and friends. In other words, your dining room should be a place for all to gather for good food and conversation.
When decorating your dining room you need to first consider how your room needs to function. Do you need room for storing china, glasses or silver or space for serving and carving food? How many people do you need to seat, and what shape of table best works in your room? Have you taken into consideration all types of lighting?
After these practical issues have teen thought out, the decorative elements such as colors, drapery, artwork, floor covering mirrors and the table can be selected.
The most important piece in any dining room is the table. Its size and shape needs to fit the room. If it is beautiful, show it off. It is not attractive, cover it with a beautiful cloth. The chairs you select need to be study and comfortable and selected to fit all body types. The style of table and chair you choose will depend on whether you want a more casual dining room or one that tends to be more formal. How you decorate your table depends on the occasion, the mood you are creating and, of course, your budget.
