The monochrome colour of the wall and dining fixtures draw out the sophistication of the elements the designer has placed in the room. An interior renovation done to provide functionality, traffic flow and sufficient lighting -this simple and appealing contemporary dining area was able to meet the objective set by both the client and the designer. The large amount of wood used in this room makes it distinct from other contemporary designs.
Place plinth lighting low on a sideboard or in storage areas that are placed near the dining area. Place it at the bottom area. This can give more ambience to the room as it directs light towards the floor. This can be an opportunity for your flooring to be noticed. You can also place candles in your dining room. You can even let it stand in a candelabrum which can be an added accessory to the room. Using candles can add ambience for a romantic dinner and for other purposes. But, you don't have to use it every day. Use it on special occasions. When not in use, it can still be a good accessory.
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.
