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.
Although the way we dine has evolved over the years, the dining room is still the perfect place to share meal times and memorable moments with friends and family. This multifunctional room is used for everything from daily dinner time with the kids, to weekly Sunday roasts with the extended family and the ever-so-occasional lavish dinner party, so it’s crucial the interior design style matches the versatility of the space.
Few of us have the luxury of a separate dining room these days, but however limited space might be it’s important to incorporate storage into your scheme wherever you can. Build a low-level, storage bench – it may take up a little floor space, but it will declutter and streamline your space while providing extra seating should you require it. If you can, have it made to match the rest of your furniture for a scheme that is cohesive and considered. Using low-level storage will also free up wall space – display a collection of framed prints that will add character and interest.
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.
