When looking for dining room decorating ideas, understand that you don't want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple does not mean plain, which is an area where you can take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Using color really can make or break dining room designs, and the cohesion of a matching furniture set allows for colorful decor choices. Try light blue or gray walls for a stylish look, or go timeless with a black and white theme. If you wish to stick to white paint, throw in some gold or copper accents, or splashes of bright colors to keep it interesting; geometric patterns, custom-painted ceilings and unique wallpapers are also effective at livening up a dining area.
Wood veneer is usually a more economical alternative to solid wood. To produce wood veneer, a manufacturer glues an extremely thin layer of solid wood (or material printed to appear to be wood) to a plywood or other wood core. Depending on the maker and the materials, wood-veneer pieces can be in the same way strong as solid wood-or quite flimsy. Generally, veneer can be used to achieve one of two objectives: a decorative patterned top (for better goods) or even to appear as solid wood (to reduce costs by using a cheaper substrate beneath it), said Dyer. A well-made veneer will be a little thicker (1/36? or greater) and will use multilayer, cross-banded plywood as the core that it is glued to.
