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.
Tables, being the centerpiece of the room, can have a significant effect on the overall personality of the dining area, and this is affected greatly by its very shape and style. There are the oval tables, which lend a certain elegance to the room. There is also the oblong table, but with rounded corners, giving it a softer, gentler impression. A round or square table is fairly conventional, but functional, and with appropriate accoutrements, produces the desired effect in the room.
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.
