1. Know your personal style
Some of us prefer simple and functional furniture that serve its purpose but doesn't stand out. Others prefer lavish and cluttered styles with bespoke furniture. Everyone has their likes and dislikes, so keep your dining room consistent with the rest of your house in terms of style.
2. Colour use:
After general style, colours are the second most important design factor. The colours of your dining room should match your dining furniture.. If you have a large dark wooden table it is not advisable to have light colours on the wall. Likewise if the rest of your furniture is bright, stay away from dark colours on the wall. In general you will want to avoid mixing too many colours at once in your dining room. Bright and loud colours have their place in a modern or contemporary dining area. Remember the dining room is for enjoying good food and conversation and too many loud colours may be a distraction. The colour red is associated with stimulating the appetite, as such strawberry or tomato, therefore these colours will help you, your family and friends enjoy their food!
Space considerations are on of the more advanced concepts. From Feng Shui to traditional British style, space is something to pay attention to. Does your room feel open and free or cluttered and narrow? There is no real right or wrong when it comes to use of space, but consider having less furniture in a small room to give it a larger appearance and having more furniture in a large room to keep it from appearing open and barren are effective design concepts.
It is not enough only to be aware of the size of your room and act accordingly. First you should consider the general space available and how much furniture you need, then you need to choose what furniture should go where and at what angles. This is a difficult task and one that needs careful thought. There are many different philosophies on the subject. Some like to keep a very symmetrical style, while others prefer an organic free flowing style. Experiment with different setups and gauge your guests reaction and their interaction. If everyone is standing instead of sitting down, you may want to change things around!
5. Compliment your pieces
As a final touch, there are some things you can do to add the last finishing. This includes matching window dressing with the colour of your furniture. You can use beautiful curtains to highlight a specific theme in your room or compliment the colour of the dining room table. Small dinning rooms look great with natural wood blinds which compliment the colour of the table.
