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.
Dining rooms are often adjacent to living rooms and kitchens, and flooring flows from one room to the next. Solid hardwood is a perfect option to create a timeless and beautiful look that suits the demands of all your main-level living areas. It's easy to clean, and many collections come with a premium protective finish that resists scratches, stains and spills for life. Of course, it's always smart to put felt padding on your chair and table legs to reduce the potential for scrapes and gouges, and to wipe up spills quickly.
Brown is like a cup of hot cocoa—it makes a room feel warm and cozy. Dark and medium browns like chocolate and burnished chestnut feel formal and sophisticated, while light browns like oak and honey are more casual. The best way to bring in a little brown is with your dining furniture’s finish, and you can even choose curtains, cabinets and framed artwork that match to tie your room together.
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.
