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.
Contemporary design uses clean lines and curves. In this type of design, clutter is being avoided. The use of open spaces is also applied. Designing your dining room with this contemporary touch will surely bring your home to the higher level in terms of aesthetic. In contemporary design, the use of natural and mand-made materials is being combined creating a sleek, trendy but natural touch.
You have an option on choosing focal points for your dining room. Your back yard can be a good focal point and you can do this by leaving your window bare without coverings. This way, you can easily see the backyard and you can also allow entry of natural light and air. Another option is by creating a great interior design and architecture. You can place window coverings by using grass shades or natural bamboo. But you can combine silk with that, too.
