With the tips below you will see that it is possible to assemble a space of these with everything you need to ensure even more enjoyable moments in the family.

Tips and hints for decorating dining rooms
1. Value the space with functionality
Whether the dining room is large or small, it is necessary to think about the layout of the furniture and, consequently, the functionality of this environment. The space required for circulation should be at least 90 centimeters already counting with the seats occupied. This means that this limit must be respected between the dining table and the wall, or another piece of furniture, so that people move freely without disturbing each other.
2. What you need in the dining rooms
When it comes to setting up the dining room many people are in doubt about what to wear in that environment. Some items are obvious and indispensable, others can be inserted according to the use and style of each one.
Generally speaking, a dining room to be minimally comfortable and fulfill its function, needs to have a table, chairs and a dresser or buffet. You can even opt for a bar, armchairs and side tables or a china cabinet.
3. How to choose the ideal tables and chairs for dining rooms
The size of the table and the number of chairs are calculated from the space you have available and the level of use. Even if you have room to accommodate an eight-seater table, it is important to consider whether a mobile of this size is really necessary within your lifestyle.
Another tip is to pay attention to the table format. There are rectangular, square and circular models. For a small dining room, the most recommended are the rectangular tables as they take up less space. Round and square tables should be used in larger environments.
In relation to the chairs, they do not necessarily have to be the same as the table. It is possible to use chairs of different sizes, colors and shapes, but preferably the same table style, for example a rustic table with rustic chairs or a modern table with modern chairs.
For smaller tables, prefer softer chairs with no arms and a low back. Already for larger tables, armchair-style chairs with high armrests and backrests are released.
4. Dirt lighting
Lighting is a highlight in the dining room and should be prioritized in the design. It is common to use direct lighting on the table with the aid of pendant lamps and chandeliers.
Try to keep the balance between the decor of the room and the style of the lamp. A modern environment can use fearless chandeliers with bold and differentiated design. The most classic and sophisticated decorations look great with crystal chandeliers and pendants. Now if your intention is to create a rustic dining room bet on the wicker or wood lamps, for example.
Include in the project lighting spots for indirect light. They help create a more intimate and cozy atmosphere for a more special dinner. But, remember to achieve this effect it is important to use yellow bulbs.
5. Use mirrors
The mirrors are great allies of the decoration and also help to increase the sense of space in the environment. In the dining room use it at table height or covering the entire wall to create amplitude.
6. Integration between environments
If you do not have your own space just for the dining room, do not worry. Nowadays it is very common to integrate the environments. In that case, you can assemble the integrated dining room to the living room or the kitchen, especially if it is American style.
7. Use or not use carpet in the dining room
The use of carpet in the dining room raises controversy. There are those who defend the use and have those who abhor. The fact is that it can indeed be used and this is directly related to the taste of each one. But there are some rules that need to be followed to ensure the good use of the item and attest that it will be, in addition to a decorative piece, also functional.
Ideally, the carpet should have a low texture so as not to accumulate dirt and facilitate cleaning. And be careful not to cause carpet accidents. For this, it is recommended to leave a spare of the carpet after the chairs, just as all the chairs should be on the carpet, even when occupied. This prevents the furniture from curling and also prevents the formation of wrinkles on the carpet that can cause tripping and slipping.
