In modern times, dining room cannot be considered as a simple room in the house to dine. It is more than that. It is a place where family and friends get together to have a warm and cozy gathering. This is especially so in case of people who entertain guests a lot. Hence there is a need to decorate the dining room with proper furniture and accessories so that it can be effectively used.
Dining Room Furniture
When it comes to dining room décor, the first preference is always given to dining room table and chairs. The shape of dining furniture to be used depends a lot on the type of dining room. If the dining room layout is long then one should opt for a rectangular table that goes well with the length of the room. If the room is small then square or round tables are the best option. When it comes to the size, there are tables that can seat 4, 6, 8 and 10 guests. If one is used to entertaining a large gathering, then they should go in for 8 seater or 10 seater table. If the guests are small in number then 4 or 6 seater would be perfect.
Dining Room Accessories
Another factor that gains equal importance when it comes to dining room décor is accessories. The basic accessories required are lighting, curtains and side table or shelf to hold tableware. The curtain selected should match the color of the wall and furniture. As for lighting, it is a general pattern to go with a chandelier in the dining area. Chandeliers with an option for candle holders can set a romantic mood. Side tables or crockery stands are a must have in most of the modern dining room setting. The size of the table or stand depends on personal preferences. Apart from these accessories custom made napkin holders, tea coasters, centerpieces, cutlery rack, etc. can add a special glamour to your dining area.
