To make decorating successful you need to achieve a room in which you can relax - and that includes keeping clutter to a minimum. Keep spare table linen neatly stored away in an attractive dresser, or other piece of furniture that has sufficient drawer and cupboard space for a home to be found for place mats and napkin rings. There is still a lot to be said for the expanse of the traditional sideboard that used to have pride of place in many dining rooms. Smaller houses seem to preclude the traditional style of sideboard as few modern houses would have sufficient wall space available against which to stand a long sideboard. However, even with smaller houses, height can be taken into account and an attractive piece of furniture with proportions that are tall rather than long would be a welcome addition to any room and can be easily incorporated into many dining room decorating ideas.
There are many styles and types from which to choose, to suit all tastes and generations. Modern furniture may include glass-topped tables, adding a certain amount of glamour to the environment. Glass can be clear, or opaque with engraved decorative patterns and symbols. Some have even taken advantage of the family coat of arms, having it displayed audaciously in the center of the dining table.
Another feature that really stands out in a dining room set, is the hutch, especially if it is one of elegance and tradition. Such hutches can house all manner of glassware, glasses for spirits, wines, aperitifs and champagne. With appropriate glass-fronted doors, such a display sets off the impression of the entire piece of furniture. It can be made of dark or light hardwoods, of teak or oak, and finished with the correct waxing and polishing, will stand out in any room.
