Dining  Room

The dining room is an important area in a home. It should be designed according to the needs of each member of the family.  Design of the dining rooms are changing  everyday.  Trend of simple homes are influencing dining rooms also. Comfort is the most important factor in any room.  Smaller furnitures are available for limited space . “Even if you live in an open-concept home, you can still make a separate and intimate dining area by painting one wall with an accent colour to give the feeling of a separate room,” says Sharon Grech of Benjamin Moore & Co. Ltd.  Dining room can be sepearte room. Or part of one room can be converted to dining area.  Certain things have to be kept in mind while designing a dining room:

  • Size of the room

The size of the room should be proportional  to the number of members  of  the house and the

Size of the dining table. There should be enough space between the table and the wall.

  • Position

The dining room should be near the kitchen. It is better  to have the family living room near 

The dining area. But the dining room should not be visible from the formal living room.

  • Flooring

Stainfree tiles can be used for flooring in the dining room. Wooden flooring should not be

Used in the dining room.

The main furniture in the dining room is the dining table. Dining tables of different size and shapes are available. If the colour of the table is darker  the colour of the upholstery of the chairs should be light and vice versa. Expandable dining tables can help in utilising space.

 There are different fabrics for the chairs.

  • Colour

 Use light colour for the dining room.  Istead of crystal chandelier  glass pendants can be used.

More detailed lighting will take attention from the rest of the interiors in the room.

  • Accessories

Use simple décor for dining room. Fresh fruits and flowers can be used to decorate dining table.  Candles can also be used.  Avoid fake flowers and fruits.  Arrange fresh flowers in a modern vase. Similar fruits can be arranged in a wooden or metal plate. Simple mats should be used.

Plants will give a natural atmosphere to the dining room. Bamboo palm and Janet craig bush

are often used to decorate dining room.  Oil paintings and classic prints will look good in a

dining room.  Wall papers can also be used.

Adding  a personal style to the dining room will give uniqueness.
