Dining rooms are growing in popularity once again. With busy schedules, families need a way to reconnect and spend quality time together. What better place than at the dining room table with a delicious meal.
Select your table based on the size
of your space, your room, your
entertaining needs, your style
preferences and more.
There is no right or wrong answer.
Just what works for you!
Add a buffet/sideboard for
off-season storage or to save some
space in your kitchen
At home you can control the portion. Ever notice how much more you eat at a restaurant?
Attitudes about trying new foods like fruits and veggies are often better when you do it together.
Meal times give you a captive audience to talk. Improve your relationship and communication skills all at the same time.
You'll keep a close eye on eating habits and changes in behaviour. Maybe use some of the time to plan the next meal - keeping everyone involved.
We all like to save money. When you go out to eat, you'll average about $9.00/person on the meal. Stay at home? You're closer to $4.50/person.
Dining room furniture is fairly simplistic so the best way to decorate is by using pops of colour, adding art or mirrors, and interesting accent
pieces. The new wallpaper options offer great style and intrigue, but if that idea seems tough to wrap your head around,
try a painted accent wall. Don't forget the lighting - try an ornate chandelier or something a little more subdued.
