The color red was traditionally thought to stimulate appetite which is why it was the color of choice in many formal dining room settings. Dining rooms were formally decorated, usually in heavy flock wallpaper at the time when coal fires were the norm and ladies and gentlemen dressed for dinner. In the vast dining rooms of the era when these dining habits were usual, and central heating still unheard of, ladies' décolleté required the warmth reflected off the rich reds and the textured wall coverings to absorb the warmth from the coal fires. This style has overflowed into other formal dining settings, often still the norm in various gentlemen's clubs and many formal hotels. However, dining room decorating is changing, with light airy themes now coming to the fore - possibly reflecting the change in dietary habits and menu choices.
The right dining room furniture arrangement is one that flows well for all meals; big, small, fancy or casual. Although a large dining table will sit as many guests as the kitchen can feed, they don't always fit the room they will be eating in. There's nothing more stifling to a conversation then feeling cramped into a small space. When you consider the style of table you want for your dining area, getting one that expands is a great option. Use the smaller table for everyday meals and put in the table leafs when entertaining guests. Perfect for holidays when the amount of food often out numbers the mouths to eat it. Removable leaf sections for your table will give you the additional space whenever the meal calls for it. Just make sure you have a variety of table cloths to fit all of your table sizes.
Just like a living room needs a sofa set and a bedroom needs a bed, your dining room is incomplete without dining room furniture. This includes dining tables, dining chairs, buffets, sideboards and servers. Choosing the right kind of dining room furniture is of utmost importance as they not only provide a comfortable place for meals but are also the centerpiece of the dining room.
First off, stick with rich wood tones. From dining tables and chairs to china cabinets, buffets and servers you will want a warm and textured look to your dining furniture to create a traditional feel. Using solid hardwood in shades of mahogany, walnut and cherry will help achieve a classic motif that will befit a formal dining room. Unlike contemporary kitchens and modern outdoor patios that will feature plastic and wicker a traditional dining room is best achieved with sturdy hardwood.
While few of us in these busy times have sufficient inclination to bring out the best damask tablecloth for everyday dining, and reports indicate the few families now sit around the dining table more than once a week. Executive apartments always include a smart dining area in their plans and young couples would expect to include a designated area for dining. Many homes nowadays often only have space for a dining room segment of their living room or an eating area in their kitchen. If this is the case, it is still possible for ideas to be applied and, rather than focusing so much on the fine dining experience, they can incorporate pine bench seating and a pine table or, if money is particularly tight, one of the many black ash dining suite products.
Of course there is always the classic charm of a china cabinet. Corner china cabinets make room arrangement a breeze and they add a bit of class to the formal dining room set up. If you have a china cabinet or any similar piece of dining room furniture that is placed along a wall make sure that it fits in the room properly. You don't want it to cut off space behind the chairs making guests feeling trapped in their seat. Your dining area should be a place for people to enjoy their meal and their company and the right furniture with the perfect room arrangement will make your space feel great for getting together, talking and sharing a meal. Take the time to coordinate your furniture to deliver the most welcoming and relaxing meal possible.
