The dining room is the place where we eat our meals which is the primary function of this part of the house. But this room is so much more than that. The dining room is a gathering place. Everybody is at a different place during the day, dealing with their own responsibilities, but when it comes to the part of the day when a meal is served, the whole family gathers together to eat. Even though this might happen only once a day, it is a precious and valuable time that we all appreciate so much. It’s not just about the food, it’s about being together, building communication and feeling connected with each other.
Beside the everyday meals, this room is the gathering place of the house for special occasions such as holidays and birthday parties. In other words it’s the room for celebration where thousands of memories are made. Memories of joy, happiness, laughter and so much love.
The dining room is a room with character. With the way you decorate it, you create that character which reflects your personality and effects the feeling people get while sitting there. The main elements of this room are the table and the chairs. The functionality of the table is very important. According to the size of the room, you should choose the appropriate dimensions and shape of your dining table. You can choose a small, medium or a large one, rectangular, round or oval… whichever you like the most. With the chairs the choice is even wider, different materials, colors and shape.
