For a contemporary design, you will use a combination of natural and manmade materials. Your dining room will look great if you use durable laminated flooring of bamboo or wood. Choose furniture that is made of wood. You can have accessories that will seem to bring in nature to your dining room. Place some plants for a more refreshing look.
Adding potted plants in your dining room is also a smart way in combining nature and man-made stuff. You can place them on a shelf or on the floor. Choose plants that have bright green leaves to give more life to your room. Use contemporary pots that have geometric patterns and neutral colors. You can either opt for short or tall plants. But be sure to choose the right placement for these plants.
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.
