The Dining Room is one of the favorite rooms in the home, where we had great memories by sharing food and thoughts. Its therefore we should make it more comfortable and functional. So, here we look at how to design a warm but stylish dining room. The most important consideration when designing your dining room is how exactly you’ll be using it.

Size

For more details refer – Dimensions

Space determines the type of furniture size, the larger the room, the longer the table you should have–and vice versa. Round table with 50 inches or less diameter are best for navigation and conversation, for larger group you can prefer rectangular or over table with 30 to 36 inches width. In terms of chairs you should pay attention, dining chair heights are typically 17 to 19 inches from floor to seat. If you would like armchairs, its height may vary by style so, ensure the armchairs fit comfortably under the table. Allow at least 30 inches of space for chair extension.

Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important elements in our homes.Lighting helps a room look larger and more welcoming.Be careful when it comes to select lamps and think about size, if it was too small it won’t give you adequate light for your particular space. There are a number of modern lighting fixtures that can be installed, the larger the room, the more bulbs in your chandelier are needed and vice versa.

Paint & Texture

Paint can transfer the entire room, light colors can make the dining room look larger and brighter. Texture & color makes all rooms feel alive. Adding two coordinating patterns, or one with a pattern and one that’s solid gains depth and dimension for room. Excellent way of adding contrast is with a rug or mixing traditional chairs with a modern table, or vice versa.

Focal point

Look for a focal point in your dining room, it may be a window or an artwork. Bare wall make the room look plain and empty so, make some art which might become a spark for starting a conversation. Even you can make your dining table as a focal point for the home.

Storage

Dining room storage is really important to keep the room tidy and clutter-free – and it gives you room to store functional items like trivets, glassware, serving pieces—even salt and pepper shakers, napkins etc. The storage should be child friendly, best storage ideas are multi-functional drawers, open shelves, larder styled cupboard or shared purpose storage.
