Using two or more light or track lighting in your dining room will not only create a beautiful visual effect over the table, but also ensure that light spreads evenly throughout the room (as opposed to casting light from a single source). This look also functions particularly well when paired with recessed lighting to illuminate the corners. When purchasing lighting for your dining room, choose two or three matching fixtures that can be spaced evenly over the length of the table. Look for fixtures that come equipped (or can be used) with dimmers so that you can set a sense of ambiance, whether you’re hosting a romantic dinner or just finishing up homework.
Since your dining room holds so many special memories, it deserves an equally special design. Fortunately, we have some dining room ideas to help you create the best space possible.
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 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?
