Now that you have figured out the best way to use your dining room according to your needs and the amount of room you have, decorating it should be easy. It is about functionality and your personal preferences. If you have a small space, see more about furnishing a small dining room here. For a large dining room, you may want to visually divide the large area into smaller ones with the help of rugs and screens. You can also buy furniture that is larger in scale. Heavy drapes, and paint color may also help. The idea is not to make the place seem small, but cozy and inviting.
Many homes today are not outfitted with a designated space for formal dining—but if you love hosting dinners, then don't let this stop you. With the right pieces in place, your great room can turn formal in a flash. A table with leaves is a must—when you're not hosting, you'll need it to take up minimal space. Likewise, your other furniture should be able to flex when not in use. A sofa table can provide serving space, and consider a pair of accent chairs for seating.
A large or fussy chandelier could take up too much visual room. Pick a chandelier that has simple lines and a small profile. That will create the effect of making your space appear larger. And that is how we come full circle to the scale. Remember it is all about scale.
Though not as big as most living rooms or as attention-grabbing as many bedrooms, the dining room is still one of the best rooms for decorating. There's no end of options for furnishings. Tables and chairs come in all shapes, sizes and eras, ready to fit into whatever look you choose to create. And once the furniture is in place, there's any number of textiles choices for tablecloths, napkins and placemats to bring color and texture to the room.
