A dining room doesn’t have to be just for eating. It can be a room to entertain, to host and much more. Once you get past the basic essentials (i.e. table and chairs), you have to go above and beyond to make it more than just another room in the house.
Since it is a room dedicated to eating, it’s important to think about ways to make it fun and inviting to guests.
To make it more appealing, you want to have more than one set of dinner wear. Ideally, you want something that you can mix and match to get the full use out of your sets. You always want to have an extra set of salad and dessert plates.
Since there’s not a lot of credentials that make up a dining room, it should make a statement. Be dramatic. You have your table, chairs and maybe some sort of shelving on the walls to store all the plates, bowls and cutlery. Something should be highlighted—a big, beautiful table surrounded by simple chairs or maybe a simpler table with chairs that have intricate detail and bold colors. The center piece is also something to think about.
Components that make a good dining room: Great wallpaper, color and lighting.
