Even the accessories, such as plates, flatware, and china all offer an amazing variety of choices. And yet, amid all of the creative freedom, there are still a few technicalities that have to be addressed. The table has to be the right size for the amount of space the dining room offers, table linens need to be durable enough to stand up to the level of use they're likely to see, and the chandelier must be hung at just the right height.
A seldom used room can be furnished with high maintenance finishes and fabrics while a dining room that is used every day should be more functional. Look for sturdy and easy to clean furniture surfaces if young children will be eating there. If you use your dining room to work, read or converse, consider comfortable chairs. Do small children use it? Consider hardy finishes, and fabrics that can be cleaned easily. For a seldom used dining room, you may even consider designating some other purpose to it more suited to how you live. It's just a dining room only if you say so.
Some designers recommend that for each additional foot of ceiling height you should add about 3" to the suspension height. It's important to note however that not everyone agrees with this. Some designers feel that the ceiling height shouldn't affect the distance of the fixture from the tabletop. If this is the case in your home the best thing to do is hold the fixture over the table and move it up and down until it feels right.
In any dining space, the table is the most important element. For a formal look, you can't go wrong with traditional-style furniture. Its intricate elements like reeding, cabriole legs and veneer inlays make for an elegant, upscale look. If formal dinners with fine china aren't your thing, then reinvent this space with a statement-making dining set. Instead of ornate embellishments, opt for clean lines and/or casual finishes that are true to your personal style. Even if you don't own fine dishware, don't discount the value of a china cabinet. It gives you space to show off your favorite finds—and honestly, you can never have too much storage.
