When looking for dining area decorating ideas, remember that you don't want to overwhelm this refined space with too much clutter. However, simple will not mean plain, which is a room where you may take some stylistic liberties. When decorating dining rooms, think about color schemes (after choosing your table, of course!). Using color can really make or break dining area designs, and the cohesion of your 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 want 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.
We're here to help you find the size dining table that is most effective with your space. To be sure to have enough room around your table, an over-all rule of thumb is to plan for a minimum 3-foot clearance on all sides. Why 3 feet? This is actually the minimum clearance that will provide enough space for someone to walk behind the chairs .while some are seated - or even to open a door on the local cabinet. As you select your ideal clearance, be certain to consider the edge of your dining area walls, other furniture and high-traffic walking areas.
