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.
We no longer live in houses with parlours and drawing rooms, but one room that has remained popular is the one for dining. Many of us have a room for dining, and even smaller houses that are more modest have at least a dining space. There has been an increase in popularity of the kitchen diner, and whilst this may not be as grand a place to eat as a dining room, it still contains the basic dining room furniture. It doesn’t matter where it is you dine; you still need a chair to sit on and a table to rest your plate of food on.
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.
Surround yourself with the things you love to create a fun and relaxing feeling. Display special pieces you have acquired throughout your years of travel. Or maybe you have found pottery predominant of the southwest or figurines of saints at flea markets. Consider displaying them in your hutch or sideboard. Small pieces may be used as center pieces on your table. If you switch your accessories around often, each piece will get the attention it deserves. Placemats and table runners will add a soft colorful touch to your dining table.
