Choosing furniture is often difficult at the best of times, but an open plan dining room makes it even harder. Open plan living spaces are not the easiest to furnish or decorate, so here are some tips to help you avoid some of the more serious errors that can turn a creative dining room into a mismatched jumble. Open areas cannot be regarded as individual rooms, with their own style of décor and furniture, but as matched or contrasting split living areas – which in reality is exactly what they are! When choosing furniture for an open plan dining room you should also consider the décor and lighting, and the need for a focal area in each room involved in the open space. For example, this might be a fireplace or entertainment unit in a living room, and a dining table, buffet or even a specific window in the room.
Windows can seem larger if they have narrow frames and surrounding woodwork, and cutting back on the drapes also tends to help open out a room. As previously mentioned, mirrors can also be used to make a room appear more expansive, but should be avoided with larger rooms if you wish to create an intimate atmosphere. Dining rooms tend to be the source of a lot of conversation, so wallpaper is better than painted walls for absorbing sound waves. A carpet or rug also absorbs sound better than wood flooring. Without some form of sound absorption, voices will be reverberating from surface to surface, and the conversation will be booming rather than muted.
