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.
If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
Space is a big thing and if you don't have it you need to try to figure out how you can get it. Remove a wall to expand your space is always an option you may want to consider. Try to find a dining room set that fits your space properly. If you have something that is too big or too small it you'll run into problems. Having the extra space at a big table is nice, but if people feel crowded they won't be comfortable.
