Dining room furniture typically includes the actual dining set (dining table and an appropriate number of chairs), a cupboard with or without a display section, and of course serving trolleys. The dining set is the star of this ensemble since most of the action happens here. Dining tables made of rosewood, teak, and pinewood lend a lot of character to the space. Glass tops enable protection of the underlying wooden surfaces. Table legs may be kept simple or ornate, to match the setting of the room. In smaller dining rooms, drawers may be fitted under the table for storage of cutlery, napkin rings and the like. There are tables with carousels for placing cutlery and sauces. Chairs are also made of the same material, with or without upholstery. Chairs may also be made of less expensive kinds of wood and stained or veneered to match the table. This enables to reduce cost and also keeps the chairs lightweight for easy movement. Dining chairs stained in a shade, contrasting that of the table is a new trend in the design of dining sets.
Another feature that really stands out in a dining room set, is the hutch, especially if it is one of elegance and tradition. Such hutches can house all manner of glassware, glasses for spirits, wines, aperitifs and champagne. With appropriate glass-fronted doors, such a display sets off the impression of the entire piece of furniture. It can be made of dark or light hardwoods, of teak or oak, and finished with the correct waxing and polishing, will stand out in any 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.
