When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
Although shades of brown dominate the marketplace, you do have options when it comes to the table’s color. Black exudes elegance. However, if the table has a veneered finish, it will be nearly impossible to camouflage any scratching. Red, a color that restaurants frequently use because it can stimulate your appetite, works well for a dining room table. This is true of all primary colors.
Lighting is important, and finding the perfect chandelier and other lighting options can help to make or break the look of the room. You want your lighting to not only be beautiful, but functional, and for many people, they want their light fixtures to be a sort of work of art. Look for unique modern beauties for your main chandelier. Many modern lighting fixtures fit into the mid-century era and they can be phenomenal. Just make sure you choose something that is scaled to your room and table size. Keep in mind, this is not a strict, must-match era, so you do not have to worry so much with making your table lamps perfectly coordinate with your chandelier or wall lights. Have fun. Be creative. And choose your light according to what really speaks to you.
Glass tabletops are trendy and offer an element of reflectivity, which can make a room feel more illuminated. Their transparency can also make a room look larger, which is always good if you're dealing with a smaller space. A drawback to a glass tabletop is that they rarely have the ability to expand.
