Most dining rooms are designed to do just that: dine. Form follows function, that’s the rule. Or, at least, it’s supposed to be…this week we’re breaking the rules! We’re bringing both form and function to the forefront. Because with the right flooring, a well-rounded table, modest lighting and a little creativity, you can design a dining room that’s stylish and sensible. After all, it’s your house―you make your own rules.

Formidable Flooring

To build a well-balanced dining room, you need to start from the ground up. Begin by laying a durable surface down as a base: hardwood or laminate. But don’t stop there—make sure it matches your current décor and color scheme, too. Once the base layer is established, you can accentuate it with a stylish area rug. Find one that not only compliments the theme of the room, but can withstand a wine spill or two.

Pro-Tip: Flooring sets the tone for the whole room. Unless your décor is dark already, stick with lighter color laminate. It will brighten the aesthetic and the atmosphere, too.

Enlightened Dining

In a dining room, lighting affects everything from the mood to the food. Chandeliers are usually the go-to lighting source for dining rooms, but, while always chic, they don’t always shed enough light. If a chandelier alone doesn’t illuminate your room, supplement with sconces or recessed lighting—they’ll compensate for your more stylish fixture’s shortcomings. And if you have windows, use them to your advantage! Framed with the elegant curtains, windows can become the most dazzling light source in your space.

Pro-Tip: Where there’s a window there’s a way. For stylish lighting control, hang thick, floor-length curtains from bronze or brushed steel rods; the true definition of wall-art.

Table Talk

The table: every dining room’s prized centerpiece. Some are stunning but can’t seat more than 6 guests. Some are grand in size, but not style. For that perfect balance of beauty and practicality, there’s ornate expanding tables! With intricate patterns and the option to expand in seconds, these modern design marvels will both awe your guests and seat them all—comfortably. Party of 4? We’re ready for you. Party of 12? One moment. It simply depends on the amount of space (and food) you have on hand.

Pro-Tip: Let ornate expanding tables be your muse, and model the rest of your furniture after it! Bring in comfortable chairs with character or add cabinets with crown molding; the stylish possibilities are practically endless.

Stylish Sidekick

While your dining room table may (now) be large enough to hold all the food you plan on serving, it can get cluttered quickly—especially with full place-settings for each seat. To maintain the visual appeal of your meal and the room, install built-in cabinetry with crown molding. This stylish serving table/storage combo is a designer’s gift to dining rooms, providing ample room for all your chinaware, glassware and hearty fare!
