Don`t forget the dining room

Let`s not forget the dining room
Rarely today do we find a formal dining room, the eating area has become assimilated as part of the open plan living combination of dining, kitchen & lounge room.
If we have two separate areas, it is the lounge or a games/media roomThe formal, standoffish dining space has become very casual, comfortable & adjacent to the kitchen to meet today's relaxed approach
This often means reducing the dining area to table & chairs plonked in a space with no presence or style.
To create the right atmosphere, try to create a room within a room to draw people to the defined space.
.Try introducing a nice soft rug underneath the dining table to help liven up the space, add paintings or a mirror on a blank wall, perhaps paint it a feature colour.
A small bureau adds storage & interest with a lamp & display items.
A low hanging pendant will generate a more formal atmosphere.
When entertaining, use of candles as a centre piece &/or a formal vase arrangement will add dramatic effect
