Many people furnish the living room with solid ark stained oak or American cherry, and use lightly stained oak or even white furniture in the dining area. By combining a good choice of furniture with well-placed lighting, it is possible to expand the apparent depth of any room in comparison with the general living area.
A low ceiling should not be accentuated, but at least partially obscured by a low level of upward lighting - the ceiling should be 'up there somewhere' without guests feeling they can reach up and touch it! Open up the ceiling if has been artificially lowered - a design feature of the 60s to 90s, but one that makes rooms look smaller.
One of the reasons why the dining room stands out as a special place is because most of the family meetings are carried out in the dining room and the dinner is time for every member of the family to be there. You therefore don't want those embarrassing moments when your guests are present. Off particular interest is the number of seats that your dining has, compared to the size off the family. This is one of the most important things that you should always consider when you are procuring the dining room furniture.
Linen and Accessories: When you coordinate the table linen to the colors that you have chosen for the dining area, remember that matching is far more difficult than contrasting. In any case, too much matching of colors among all the elements of a dining room may not even look that attractive; a contrasting palette may look more interesting and attractive on the whole. So if you have beige on the walls, consider wine colored table cloth and beige colored table napkins. Or contrast the color of the china and serving dishes to the color of the table cloth to get a dramatic and attractive look.
