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.
Colors and Drapes Should Match. If your dining room is also an open plan kitchen, then solid wood cabinets can be used to match up closely with the style of the dining and living room furniture. A hardwood dining table and chairs, and the other furniture then match with the style of the living room. One important factor is that the curtains or drapes in each area do not clash, and that the wall covering, be it paper or paint, match well between the two.
For those of you who are used to getting something accomplished in a short period of time, a word of warning: redecorating your dining room area might take a bit longer than what you’re used to. A lot of the time is consumed in making decisions and comparing characteristics of different types of dining room furniture. You don’t want to end up choosing the wrong dining room tables or kitchen tables, so you do need to take your time in deciding – although not so much that you end up stalling.
You will need to consider your space wisely before hitting the furniture stores. A really great warming accent that is easily added is an area rug. Even in a room that is carpeted, an area rug can help accentuate your dining area furniture and tie the whole room together. Use occasional pieces to give your formal dining area a cozier, lived in feel. Ultimately, your dining room should call not just to guests, but to your family to gather daily to share in each other’s lives. Buying the right furniture will make the difference. Plus, there is something to be said for that continued rite of passage for children to graduate from the ”kids table” to the ”big table”. Keep the spirit of family dining alive by finding the right dining room furniture to fit your home.
