By applying a particular decorating style, you can insert furniture and accessories which will make good use of the space in your dining room. Keep in mind design themes which allow for a variety of baskets and shelving since these can be used as extra storage. Deciding on a design you really can live with, however, is imperative as this is where you will be eating lots of meals.
Consider Shape. You have several shapes from which to choose. The two most common shapes are rectangular and circular. Some people prefer a circle shape, believing that this shape facilitates better conversation. It's easier to fit more people around the table with a rectangular shape. If you add leaves to a circular table, it will become an oval. An octagonal table is another option.
Functional Considerations. The way you use this furniture will determine what you need. For example, if you like to have large family gatherings, but your immediate family is small, you will need to have a table that will expand with extra leaves to accommodate guests. An additional option could be a circular drop-leaf table that expands out for more people and folds down for smaller groups. If you like the intimacy of a round surface for small gatherings around a meal, choose a circular design.
