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.
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.
We all know that a dining room needs a table and chairs. But what kind of a table and which chairs? What else might be needed in your dining room? A china cabinet? Sideboards? Serving carts? Or some other kind of storage, because your dining room also doubles as your home-office? How big is your dining room? Do you have a large space at your disposal? A cavernous room with a small table will look cold and empty, while a too small space with a large table and chairs will seem unpleasantly crowded. Always measure your room before buying furniture, and remember to leave enough room around your furniture to move around easily.
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.
