Dining Room Do-Over

April 17, 2014 by  

dining1If your family is like most, the dining room is the hub of your home. Between meals, snacks, entertaining, board games, and homework, your dining room probably sees a lot of traffic. When you spend this much time in a room, it’s important to create an environment that is comfortable and inviting. If you’re ready for a dining room do-over, these trending interior design tips will get you off to a good start.

1. Choosing a table and chairs – There are a lot of things to consider when you choose a dining room set. First of all, you have to think about the space you have available and what will comfortable fit. You should also consider the size of your family and how often you have people over for meals. After years of darker woods being the most popular choice, blonde hues have made a comeback. These lighter woods are more friendly than formal, and they tend to look nice with nearly every style of decor or color scheme.

2. A Place for Everything – Whether you prefer the look of a hutch, a buffet, a side table, or open shelving, having storage space in your dining room is essential. It’s much more convenient to have a place to keep dishes, napkins, and serving ware in the room where you’ll be eating, rather than dragging everything out from the kitchen. If your dining room is large enough to accommodate it, many families also incorporate storage space for board games, art supplies, or anything else that gets used in group activities around the table.
