However, do not forget that decorating your eating area with dining furniture does not stop with dining room tables. You have to make sure that everything else fits in well with your theme. Your chairs, cutlery, china cabinets, and all other dining room accessories also need to emulate the same vibe. They don’t all necessarily have to be made of black walnut, but you need to find complementing shades and shapes that will look perfect with the rest of your walnut dining furniture.
Many people furnish the living room with solid ark stained oak or American cherry, and use lightly stained oak or even white furniture in the dining area. By combining a good choice of furniture with well-placed lighting, it is possible to expand the apparent depth of any room in comparison with the general living area. Mirrors are an excellent way to make a smaller room larger. When choosing furniture, you might also consider one or two mirrors that can enhance the overall open plan effect. Some people elect to use mirrors in their living and dining areas that reflect each other, and in so doing not only add depth, but also bring the two together. Carvers’ Guild, for example, offer decorative mirrors suitable for both living rooms and dining rooms, and are ideal wall decor for open plan living areas.
The lighter the wood, the less space it seems to take up, although obviously this is only an illusion. You need to leave at least 4 feet space between each side of the dining table and the walls or other furniture, and also a minimum of 24 inches between chairs. That should be enough information to enable you to work out the size of table you can fit in and how many people you can seat. Don’t try to get away with less space, or your guests will feel squashed and uncomfortable.
Dining Room Accessories and Accent Pieces. If your dining room has the space for them, other pieces of furniture such as cocktail cabinets, curio cabinets, sideboards and credenzas add that extra touch of pizzazz to your décor and furnishings. Candelabra, a chandelier and other forms of unique lighting can be used, and table furniture such as bowls, centerpieces and trays of nuts and fruit will add class to any table.
