Color Palette: Do not assume that because a color is your favorite, it will also look good on the walls of the dining room or create a harmonious whole with the dining room furniture. Also, when choosing a color palette, understand that what looks good in the day in natural light may not necessarily look as good or even look the same in artificial light. In general, colors such as reds, oranges and yellows work to create a more formal atmosphere while colors such as golden or creamy yellow, terracotta, wine, burgundy or dusty rose are considered ideal for a dining room. These colors are said to stimulate the appetite and also have been shown to promote enjoyable conversation.
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.
There are various styles of dining room chairs, and the ones you choose should be in line with your dining area's staging plan, not to mention the rest of the home's. For more formal dining areas, for example, suitable dining chairs would be velvet-padded or with satin covers and elegant patterns for a tinge of understated sophistication; patterns that are too loud or brightly-colored would be distracting.
Artificial light should be sparkling but not too bright, and the ideal type of overhead lighting for a small dining room is a small chandelier- this will make a small table appear larger. If you have a dimmer switch, overhead spotlights or ceiling space lighting would also be suitable. The lighting in any size of dining room should be subtle but sufficient.
