Another important area to consider in a southwest dining room is the lighting. Lighting creates mood and should not be overlooked. Most homes, no matter the type of decor used, have a center light over the table. Consider using either an antique looking wagon wheel light or an antler chandelier in your southwest dining room. Be sure to include a dimmer switch no matter what choice you make for your room’s lighting. By using dim lighting, you will create a formal or romantic environment in your southwest dining room. To create a cheerful environment, turn your lighting to the brightest setting.
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.
The location of a dining room depends on factors like the proximity to the living room, the kitchen, wash basin, etc. The east, south or west parts of the house are ideal locations. Preferably, the dining room should be near the kitchen to facilitate the easy carrying of the food. It should also be near the living room. In the United States, you have the dining room adjacent to the living room used only for dining with guests or on special occasions. For informal meals, a dinette is the space adjacent to the kitchen where meals are served. Today, most modest size flats don’t have enough room for an independent or solo dining room. What is done is they integrate the living area and dining area into one. They may have a space adjacent to the kitchen where small tables and chairs are placed. The space is called a breakfast nook. Or you can have a breakfast bar instead, often higher than the regular kitchen counter with bar stools.
The dining room furniture we have today would be immediately recognizable by anyone that happened to pop back from Medieval Britain! Let’s face it a table is a table, four legs or a pedestal to rest the tabletop on. That said it makes the table sound purely function over form but that is certainly not the case. Furniture for dining these days is extremely stylish and beautiful. We probably don’t use our tables ever day to eat at, but many of us do use the table for our traditional Sunday lunch gathering.
