Dining rooms can take on a number of functions and styles depending on the pieces placed within and the layout of the space. Seating is the key component to define any dining room. By varying the seating type, formal chairs vs casual benches, one can create a more flexible space. Seating style can also define the feel of the room as more rustic or elegant. A table size and shape plays huge role in how the space is used. Oval tables allow a touch of flexibility while still delivering a formal quality if need be. Finally, the artwork or decoration that surrounds the dining furniture can further set the tone of the space. The walls can be great place to add depth or intimacy to a space.
- A rectangular table is better suited for a small area and can fit in pretty much any home because of it’s simple design.
- A glass dining table is an interesting choice but it is one that can stand out if it is accompanied by decorative chairs and walls.
- When decorating your dining table, sometimes simple is the best way to go, as there is a certain amount of charm that goes with not over decorating a table.
