Space is very important. First, you have to know if you have a wide or narrow space, a closed space or an open space. This way, you will be able to know the kind of colors to use. If your area is closed, you can choose colors that will make it look wide. It can also help you choose the right furniture sizes. This will also be your guide in choosing the right layout for your dining room.
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.
Instead of trying to light your dining area by using only a single source of light, illuminate it using various sources. Having different types of lights in your dining area can also serve as additional decors to your dining area. Also, when you have a single chandelier or overhead lighting as a source of light, it could be too bright making it uncomfortable. So, avoid creating a glare by using multiple layers of light.
