Your dining table is the star in your dining area. But it doesn't really have to be new. If you think your old one will still look good and apt, then use it. You can also change its color if you want to. Choose the right size and shape of your table. If your area is small, you can use a round table. Your seats should be comfortable. It has to complement with your table, too.
Some homeowners place wall scones not just to add decoration but to add drama to the dining area. You can even dim the lights on a romantic dinner and turn on the wall sconces only. This way, an area will still remain lighted and you will be able to have a truly romantic ambience. Have a well lighted dining area by using fluorescent lights. This can give a great amount of light to those who are dining. Opt for dimmers so that the room can be flexible for any occasions. It can work well as an overhead lighting.
For dining room furniture, use those with strong lines, straight edges and right angles. Curves can also be used but these curves are soft. You can use wooden or metal dining chairs that have straight backs. But you can also use upholstered chairs with solid colors. Avoid using prints for it is not really used for a contemporary design. For your dining table, choose the kind that has sleek lines. A wooden table that has clean lines will be good. Or you may opt for a glass topped table with silver legs.
