When most of us think of dining rooms we think of tables, buffets, chairs and chandeliers. But something equally as important in the dining room are the curtains and drapes. Amidst all of the hard furniture that tends to fill this room it's wonderful to have some fabric and add a touch of softness. So even if you don't normally include flowing curtains and drapes it's worth considering adding some to the dining room.
Open up a smaller space by using colors that provide a background that makes your space look bigger. Do not clutter it with unnecessary decor, but mirrors or other reflective surfaces might be helpful. There are many options for dining room lighting: chandeliers, pendants, sconces or floor lamps that come in many different styles from cutting edge contemporary to nostalgic traditional.
Don't forget candles for those special occasions. Whatever source you choose for lighting, make sure it has a dimmer switch, so that you can adjust the amount of light you need. One rule of thumb for hanging chandeliers: there should be at least 34" inches of clearance space between the chandelier and the table. If it is a wider chandelier, make sure that people won't bump their heads when getting up or sitting down.
If your dining room leaves something to be desired in the ambience department, look to color to set the mood of your room. We’ve found that some of the best color inspiration comes from the very foods we eat—they offer such a fresh, lively bouquet of tones to choose from. Whether you want your dining room to feel bold and beautiful or warm and cozy, you’re sure to find a hue that inspires you.
