Dining Rooms & Kitchen Design
Lighting is key for a dining room as well!
Having a variety of light sources adds interest and helps to set a mood for any occasion. Natural light near a dining space is always a plus.
These various uses and the architecture, shape, and size all dictate how a dining room is designed. Adequate seating for the maximum amount of guests at any time is important. A table doesn’t need to be just one size so buying one with an additional leaf or two is helpful.
Even in a formal dining room you don’t want to be ponderous or gloomy. Eating is really one of your indoor sports. You play three times a day, and it’s well worthwhile to make the game as pleasant as possible.
