When most of us think of dining rooms we think of tables, buffets, chairs and chandeliers. But something equally as important in the dining room are the curtains and drapes. Amidst all of the hard furniture that tends to fill this room it's wonderful to have some fabric and add a touch of softness. So even if you don't normally include flowing curtains and drapes it's worth considering adding some to the dining room.
A seldom used room can be furnished with high maintenance finishes and fabrics while a dining room that is used every day should be more functional. Look for sturdy and easy to clean furniture surfaces if young children will be eating there. If you use your dining room to work, read or converse, consider comfortable chairs. Do small children use it? Consider hardy finishes, and fabrics that can be cleaned easily. For a seldom used dining room, you may even consider designating some other purpose to it more suited to how you live. It's just a dining room only if you say so.
So many people shy away from red because it’s such an intense color. Instead, think of red as a spicy ingredient. Too much will overpower your space, but just the right amount will really enrich its flavor. Sprinkle it throughout your room in the form of an accent wall or home decor, such as an area rug, artwork and decorative accents. If your dining room leaves something to be desired in the ambience department, look to color to set the mood of your room. We’ve found that some of the best color inspiration comes from the very foods we eat—they offer such a fresh, lively bouquet of tones to choose from. Whether you want your dining room to feel bold and beautiful or warm and cozy, you’re sure to find a hue that inspires you.
Similarly, engineered wood offers gorgeous style and long-lasting durability. Other good dining room flooring ideas include traditional luxury vinyl tile, engineered tile, rigid core and laminate. Which might be the best dining room floor for you? It really depends on your budget, the type of look you prefer — hardwood, natural stone tile or grouted natural stone tile — and whether you have any enhanced durability needs.
