BY On Nov 06, 2018 Dining Room
Traditionally, every design element in formal spaces matched down to the very smallest detail. However, recently a trend of mixing and matching certain pieces — like dining chairs — has been blossoming among the design community, particularly among those looking to give the space a more relaxed and user-friendly feel. Maintaining one coordinating element is the key to pulling off this look. For instance, if all of your chairs are different shapes, making them the same color will help tie them together. Likewise, if all of the chairs feature distinct artistic details, make sure they’re all made from a similar material.
Odds are you’ll want to establish the dining table as the focal point of the room. It can feel empty with the table alone, however, so add a rug for color and texture. Make sure it is at least 24 inches wider than the table on each side to allow room for the chairs to easily slide out without going over the edge of the rug. In addition to grounding the space, having a rug in the dining room will infuse it with a sense of warmth and comfort, especially if you have wood flooring. The extra padding also will make guests more comfortable, and the rug can act as a stain barrier in the event of accidental spills.
It’s no small task to create a dining space that feels special enough to use for formal occasions while still being functional enough to be part of an everyday routine. But with a little thought and planning, it can be done. Use these dining room ideas as inspiration for how you want to design the space in your home, and you’ll end up with just the right mix of comfort and elegance.
Of all the rooms in a home, the dining room often feels the most special. While a lot of us may not use it every day, it’s where we gather to mark happy occasions and to entertain close friends.
It’s not easy to design a space that feels fit for a celebration, yet is still functional for day-to-day living. After all, there’s no sense in having a room in your home that rarely gets used, right?
