In addition to your table, chairs, and hutch, there are some fun furniture items you can add to your dining room if you have space. You can add a wash stand-a great option if you are designing and old-fashioned or Victorian-style house. You may also want to consider a silver chest or a tea cart. You can also add a china or curio cabinet-these usually have beautiful glass doors, sometimes with mirrors behind them. Pie safes are a fun addition. You can even add a wine rack to your dining room. Don't forget that along with your beautiful furniture items you will want to add accessories: china and tea sets, candlesticks, chandeliers, paintings and mirrors, vases of flowers, and place settings are just a few of the possibilities.
If your space is defined and separate from the other rooms in your house, you can still benefit from the use of area rugs. An area rug under a table gives an immediate sense of polish and flair in your dining room. Using a colored rug will brighten your room immediately. A dark, patterned or bamboo rug will give your room gravity and center. If you do not wish to have a rug under your table, consider placing a rug runner along one wall of the room, or between different entrances to the space. Moving the table out of the center of the room and allowing a rug to take up some of the extra floor space will immediately change the feel of the room's structure. Utilizing runners can direct traffic flow or showcase a china cabinet or other focal point in your dining room.
Create a multi-purpose eating space that can be used all day long. Even if you have plenty of space, make the room a true entertainment destination full of things to talk about. Build bookshelves and line them with games to pull out after dinner or place books on them that are sure to get your guests talking. And, when you don't have company, you can use the room as a reading room. Place a cozy lounge chair in one corner to curl up and show that room really is used and loved.
Another option for your dining room table and chairs is to get a table that is long yet not very wide. When placed lengthwise in a room, it can make the room longer. It offers the added benefit of leaving more space around the table and chairs itself, allowing guests more convenience and a little more elbow room. If you use chairs on one side and a bench on the other side of a skinnier table, you can gain even more room in a small dining area.
