Beulah Manning. Dining Room. July 11th , 2018.
Blank wall space doesn't do much to enhance the décor of any room, and in a dining room it can make the room seem cold and unwelcoming. To create a focal point, you can use one large item and accent it with smaller items or you can create a wall grouping with several smaller items. For example, you could start with a large painting, a wrought iron or an architectural wall hanging, a tapestry or mirror and accent it with smaller coordinating items, such as candle wall sconces, vintage plates or cast iron accents. Or creating a stunning arrangement with a visually interesting collage of smaller pieces: tie them together by color, theme, or material.
The first trick of the trade is to realize that a small space can look larger than it really is by painting the walls a darker color and leaving the ceiling white, wallpapering with stripes or adding a large mirror to the wall. If you can't paint or poke holes in the wall, then think about how you can make the dining room table and chairs different.
Linen and Accessories: When you coordinate the table linen to the colors that you have chosen for the dining area, remember that matching is far more difficult than contrasting. In any case, too much matching of colors among all the elements of a dining room may not even look that attractive; a contrasting palette may look more interesting and attractive on the whole. So if you have beige on the walls, consider wine colored table cloth and beige colored table napkins. Or contrast the color of the china and serving dishes to the color of the table cloth to get a dramatic and attractive look.
There are many options for dining room furniture, you may want brass, wood, glass, leather, or a combination of styles added to the room. You can find great websites that will offer design ideas and decorating tips, along with the great selection of furniture to choose from.
Dining room chairs are usually offered as matching options to the table you choose. Most people buy no more than two chairs with arms that are usually placed on opposite ends. Side seating is usually provided by either a bench or individual chairs without arms, which allow that extra placement adjustment space when crowded.
