Functionality - How many people regularly dine at your home? Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.
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.
Chairs are the pieces of furniture that get most of the abuse. They are scooted across carpet and rugs to loosen the legs, items that are in pockets scratch them and many times the backs become loose as well. Some people even end up mismatching their dining sets by buying mismatched chairs. If this happens to you, consider using slipcovers to cover them up during a dinner party. Slipcovers hide the little imperfections your chairs may display while making a beautiful setting for your dining room.
