There is one activity in every household that makes women weak in the knees and men shake with heated excitement: Eating. A dining room is perhaps the most important room in a house not only due to being the setting to one of the most wonderful activities in the world but also because of its unparalleled power of bringing every single person together. “Dinner is ready” will eternally be a sentence that is always recognised with frantic euphoria. This is why if a statement need be made, no other room can deserve it more than your dining area!
Don’t Forget To Look Up
Let’s be honest, dinner time is about what you see when you look down. However, when you put your head back to give that last sigh of joy after nearly bursting, the effect of seeing a wonderful design will feel like the cherry on your desert.
Food itself is about finding balance within chaos. Sweet sauce on chicken, rice in a pudding. Sometimes things that don’t really match deliver the best recipe!
Go Big or Go Home
An old saying goes “The eye has to eat for the belly to be full”. Never disregard the value of the portion sizes because visually feasting is just as important as feasting via eating. Therefore making bold, huge details will only improve your dinner time.
Be Weird With the Lighting
Every dinner table, regardless of the cuisine, has one thing on it in common: A source of light. So why not make your statement through something elaborate, different, strange or exquisite?
Dress Up Your Table
Everyone wants to wear what makes them look nicer. The same is true for your dinner table. Making it look nicer with a beautiful tablecloth will surely pass your statement to everyone in the room.
Here Comes the Sun
Not necessarily the sun but a touch of the exterior, that is. Vast windows will turn every dinner to a safari where you can watch the show of life while introducing the illusion of grandeur space to your room.
Colorful furnitures not only convey a joyful feeling but they can be very useful for establishing a different sense to your dining room. Exotic, nostalgic, friendly- you choose!
Catch the focus of everyone with a hyperbole of details. Let your dining room have a soul of its own.
Use a Colour Palette
There is a reason why most good films use a palette of colours through its scenes: It is one of the best directorial ways to convey an emotion. Apply the same technique to your dining room by choosing a colour palette for the whole are.
