Dining Rooms

Designing Dining Rooms

Dining rooms seem to be the one room in the house that goes in and out of fashion. When I was young, having a separate dining room was something special. Now the open plan dining area seems to be the fashion. I suppose it means that you can move the furniture around with much more ease. It is more difficult to change a dining room into a living room for example.

The dining room basically consists of a dining table and a quantity of chairs. Depending on the space available, a buffet, dresser or some sort of serving table is often included.

Whatever type of dining room you have we will provide you with ideas on how to decorate it, and later we will follow up with general table settings and seasonal table settings.
