There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
If you are a skilled craftsman, or you simply have a lot of time on your hands, you can try to create your own table out of older materials. Some common materials used are flooring planks, particularly in rarer woods such as redwood, old wooden doors, and even wood salvaged from wrecked ships. If done properly, these materials can make for truly unique dining room sets that not only look fantastic, but also offer a story that you can tell to any guests sitting at them.
Lighting above your table is something you can't do without. The proper type of light is also a bonus to the comfort level of the room.. Try placing your table in different directions to get a new look and feel in your room. Rearrange the furniture and see what kind of neat layout you can create. Try to keep it fun and you'll have a dining room to enjoy.
