There are some things to consider and keep in mind when designing and putting together your perfect dining room.

One of the most important features to a perfect dining room is chair selection.  Family dinners, gatherings, and dinner parties can tend to last quite a while and you want your guests to be comfortable.  If you have a large enough space, large, well cushioned chairs make for a wonderful dining experience.

Something else to pay attention to is table size.  You want to be careful not to squeeze in furniture that is too large for the space.  This will not be visually appealing and will also result in people having to squeeze around the chairs with little to no room to get in and out.  The same idea applies to a table that may be too small for your dining room space.  This can cause the room to swallow up your furniture making it look dinky resulting in your dining room not looking the best.

Another important aspect in table selecting is the width of the table.  If you like to place platters, pots and pans directly on the table , you will need a wider table.  If this is not your style of serving then it’s not as necessary… although if you have a room that will hold a wider table the extra space is always nice.

We hope these tips have been helpful.  Enjoy our gallery!
