Tips for Dining Room Design


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.

If you have a particular dining room dilemma, leave a comment below.  I might be able to give you some helpful advice!
