Hello all! Are you looking to increase the visual and functional value of your dining room? Here are my top tips for good design in this most important of rooms:
- As far as lighting is concerned, make sure you have a variety of sources. Lamps, chandeliers and small ceiling pin lights to wash the table. All always on dimmers!! I also use lots of cove lighting designed with moulding.
- If using a rug, I hate chairs being half on and half off a rug when pulled out. Make sure the rug you choose is big enough to avoid this problem.
- My favorite shape of table is round and I often use two in larger dining rooms as shown in the photo above.
