Making family meals is a great opportunity to share moments together, especially in the midst of the day-to-day running. And the dining room serves just that: to create moments watered by good food and good company.
So that these moments are harnessed in the best possible way, the decoration counts a lot. And with it you will determine the most suitable furniture and the ideal lighting, for example.
And speaking of furniture, the dining room does not require much. We can summarize a space of this with three items: tables, chairs and a sideboard or buffet, the latter being optional. The great trick to making a perfect dining room is to get right in choosing the furniture and the decor.
This is what you will learn here: how to decorate your dining room. Keep following this post, because we will give you great tips and surprise you with lovely designs.
Dining room decoration: dining table
Let's start with it: the dining table. The right choice of furniture will make all the difference in the comfort and aesthetics of your dining room.
The dining table is the largest furniture in the environment and, it is up to her, to determine the area of circulation of the place. To plan your dining room take into account that it is necessary to leave a minimum area for circulation, which is usually 90 centimeters, but ideally it should be between 120 centimeters to 150 centimeters (provided that the chairs are already occupied and away from the table ).
The round and square tables are beautiful, but in small dining rooms the rectangular tables, which take up less space, are ideal.
The material for your dining table can be glass, wood or metal. Whatever you prefer, as long as it fits the design of the décor, especially in cases where the dining room is integrated with other environments, such as the kitchen and the living room. So yes, it is preferable to standardize the decoration style to create identity and continuity between environments.
Dining room furniture: chairs
The chairs are the table pair and are as important as it. The choice of chairs will depend on the type of table and the tip, in this case, is to pay attention to the dimensions of the table.
A large, spacious table holds armchair-style chairs, with arms, high back and cushions. Small tables should have armless chairs and a low backrest.
It is not necessary to combine all the chairs. They can be different, as long as they have something in common, such as the same material, color or finish. The same idea applies to the combination of tables and chairs, they do not have to be a perfect match, but they must have something in common.
To get away from the obvious, switch two chairs over a long bench, that's a good hint for small rooms. When the seat is not being used, just push it down the table, freeing up space for movement. Sofas and benches fixed in the corner of the wall can create a German corner.
Dining room decor: sideboards and buffets
Let's start by explaining the difference between dresser and buffet. The sideboards are poured furniture and serve for (guess what?) Trim objects! But the buffets have doors and drawers and are ideal for storing those crockery or cutlery that you only use on special occasions.
In the dining room, both furniture breaks a bunch at the time of serving the meal, since you can use them to accommodate the dishes or serve the food over them.
Puffs or small benches can be stored under the dresser, in case some extra guest arrives he does not stand up.
Other Dining Room Decoration Items
There are also three important elements worth mentioning here. The first one is the rug. You can use a rug in the dining room as long as it has a low texture for easy cleaning and does not accumulate dirt. Another important aspect that should be taken into consideration is that the carpet should have a leftover after the chairs to avoid accidents and all the chairs should stand on the carpet.
The second element is the chandelier or lamp. This item is very common in dining rooms and highly value the space. So if you can, invest in one. The chandeliers are usually centered on the table, but nothing prevents you from having some indirect points of light distributed throughout the room.
And finally, the mirror. This is a great darling of dining room decor. And you should already know why. It visually widens the space and adds elegance to the environment. It pays to bet on one.
