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 In modern times, however, the hearth has been replaced by kitchens, where we cook our food.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.
Make sure you know what you're working with. Measure your spaces and keep track of what you want to put into your dining area, furniture wise. You obviously need to shop around for best prices and styles, but make a list of the type of pieces that you would like to include in your new dining room. This way, you won't forget anything later when you go to shop online or in store.
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.
