In our fast paced society things are a lot different than they used to be. It's hard for people now days to find the time to sit at the table with the family and enjoy a meal together. You now see dining rooms used mainly for special functions and holidays. Most of us would like to take the time with the family and we should. It may be time that the dining room is converted into a space that is used for many things and not just for meals. Things like doing homework, playing board games or assembling a jig-saw puzzle are few options that are great place to be done on the dining room table.
While most of us might take dining room for granted, we don't realize the important role that it plays in our lives. In ancient times, Greeks used to have this concept of Hearth, a central pit of fire inside a home, where families would gather around to enjoy food, talk about their daily lives and have some happier moments. This even extended to the town centres of the ancient cities, where anyone could claim guest privileges to be treated well when they were travelling. Hearth was, in essence, the heart of every home. In modern times, however, the hearth has been replaced by kitchens, where we cook our food. But one thing that hasn't gone out of practice is our habit of congregating in one place to enjoy delicious meals and have a lively chatter. That responsibility now lies on the hefty shoulders of a dining room. And when it is equipped with the right settings, then it becomes the perfect place and, truly, the heart of every home.
Some Design Ideas The chandelier should never be your only lighting in the room. Planning for other lighting such as a table lamp with a nice glass lampshade, will greatly influence the total room package. A dimmer is also essential for a dining room chandelier. Dimming is important because most of the time, you will not want all that light. A floor lamp in the corner of the room can also make a great addition. Just make sure it is not too big as you want the chandelier to be the main lighting focus point. Wall scones, with their upward directed lighting, also work well in a dining room. In fact, chandeliers and wall sconces make a perfect pair of lights.
