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.
The dining room set is a treasure to behold, when all the coordinates have been expertly matched and placed. For those who are not familiar with the 'dining room set,' it consists of the dining room table and comfortable chairs, relaxing sofa, corner chairs if space allows and a hutch to house all the crockery and supplementary items like table mats and cutlery. We might also find end tables, lamps, ottomans and other small foot rests. The beauty of the set is that each component has been matched to enhance the ambiance and mood of the room.
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.
