DINING TABLE IDEAS
Dining rooms are one of the most important spaces in a room. It’s the place where the entire family assembles during supper and where all kinds of discussions take place. As a result of this the dining table acquires a much more important place than any other random piece of furniture. As such it should be spacious, beautiful, efficient and have a personal touch about it. A dining table should not be too bulky that we struggle to fit it into our apartments, but should not be too tiny that it fails in its very purpose. There are many different designs and variations available for the dining table and we have to make sure that our dining table is not only inviting but also extremely flexible to accommodate all the activities that will be performed on it.
Lighting plays a very important role in making or breaking the essence of a dining room in general and a dining table in particular. Pendant lights are the best fit for a dining table. They are efficient, pretty and soothing. Pendant lights are also the best bet during an intimate dinner. Pendant lights hung at a perfect height and with enough illumination can bring out the true beauty of a dining table to the fore.
COPLEMENTING THE ROOM:
While selecting the dining table, we should have a clear vision as to how it will look in the dining room and how it will merge in with the color and décor of the dining room. If the walls are painted in light shades like white or cream, it would be a sensible decision to go for a bold color like black or grey or wooden brown for the table. The chairs should, of course be matching with the table. Getting a table that has no identifying feature with the rest of the room is not such a good idea as eventually the entire space will be viewed as a single unit and there’s the chance of the table standing out.
The placement of the dining table is also kind of an important factor that we have to consider while setting up the dining table. The dining table is always best to be made the center of the room. It should be avoided from being pushed to a corner as that might disturb the symmetry of the room and give it an uneven feel. Again it is also equally better if the pendants atop the dining tables are installed after the positioning of the table so that they are in the right position.
Dining tables are easily the most important piece of furniture in a household. They are indeed a multipurpose venue and so should be reflective of all those activities. The design style and hues that we choose for a dining table should be influenced solely by the general make-up of the room and our aesthetic vision. Blindly following a piece that is in vogue can result in a dining table that is not at all comfortable in its environment. Choosing what’s best for our room is the way forward.
