One of the biggest issues in dining room furniture arrangements and especially in formal room arrangements is storage for various dining accessories. Those miscellaneous items like bread warmers, condiment servers and napkin rings can be a chore to find a home for without making a room look cluttered or junky. When you are planning out your room arrangement, plan to include another piece of furniture totally unassociated with eating and there are a couple of different approaches to this.
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.
Harmonious - Lounge/Diner. A dining room off the lounge must tie in and flow-through, normally achieved with matching walls and floor coverings. Furniture must be in keeping with your existing lounge, in other words, don't try to go shabby chic if you have a modern, minimalistic lounge. Instead choose a contemporary iron dining table with sleek, clean lines and a glass top. Lounge/diners are the most difficult to decorate, get it wrong and you've compromised your main living room too. You must find the perfect balance that maintains the flow and also makes the rooms appear separate. For instance, it's better not to match colours identically but use complementary colours instead. If the colour scheme in your lounge is based around neutral olive green, perhaps go for dark red accents in your dining room.
September/October is the most popular time of year for a dining room re-vamps. Although you make not like to admit it, you're probably already thinking about Christmas, hosting the biggest meal of the year, lots of entertaining and receiving your fair share of friends and relatives. And what you'll need is a fabulous dining room that'll enhance the occasion!
A chest of drawers that doubles as a buffet is another great option. The storage in the drawers is perfect for table linens and this is a great place to store your silverware, dining accessories and serving platters and yet they will be handy for when you need to use them. If you have the space, you can add a lovely hutch to your chest of drawers and showcase that heirloom china and still store the other dining accessories. If a hutch is too large and in charge for your space consider adding some floating shelves to your dining room décor. Also a great way to display those just for looks pieces.
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.
