There are always exceptions, of course, but for the most part, this difference holds true. The use of engineered wood has increased over the last ten to twenty years and this has also had an effect on the look of dining room furniture. The veneers that are used so often now give the pieces a sleek, shiny finish, usually with no wood grain showing at all.
Besides room, table size and dimensions, the type of chairs that you select also have a bearing on the number of people you will be able to fit on a given dining set. While chairs with arms are rare for dining sets, they do exist. In some cases, the arm chairs are placed only at the two ends of oval or rectangular sets. It is recommended that if space is an issue, you avoid arm chairs as the arms will limit the number of chairs that can fit. You can also mix chairs, to include smaller chairs especially if you have smaller children.
Heavy colors were fine for heavy dining when many courses were the order of the day. Decorating ideas often still follow the sophisticated theme, but this sophistication is more often than not likely to be reflected in a light color scheme which, with Gustavian chairs and Waterford crystal glassware, provides a charm all its own. As blue is not considered to have any effect on appetite, choosing blue as a color scheme for your dining room decorating ideas really does mirror modern tastes, reflected in fewer courses and less calories. There again, other popular colors for dining room settings are champagne, cream and beige, or neutral magnolia. Natural lighting best suits the modern ethos of these of decorating a dining room, although a well-lit overheard rise-and-fall lamp makes an ideal lighting accompaniment. To complete the decor, make the maximum use of the windows you have available and, for small windows, reduce the amount of drapes - perhaps by using muslin in place of heavy curtaining.
