With the holidays just around the corner, which means it’s the time of the year to start getting your dinning room ready for guests and family to start dropping by, here are some valuable tips for decorating your dining room:


If you have a large family or entertain often, you would need a table that sits at least six, with one or two leaves.

Timothy Corrigan Designer



In place of a sideboard or a buffet, use a contemporary Parsons table that can be set up as a bar or an extra servicing space and doesn’t overcrowd the space.


House Beautiful Magazine



Make a statement with a fabulous wallpaper pattern.  Use it only above the chair rail, you will need less and it will upgrade the space.

Dark Paint adds drama to a dining room but make sure that there is plenty of natural light coming in.

House Beautiful



Light up the room with a glamorous chandelier hanging over the dining table and always install a dimmer switch so you can dim the light while you are eating


Alidad, Designer



Mix and match your seating. Turn a nook into a cozy, casual dining area with banquette seating and even a wing-back chair






The table looks empty and sad if there’s no centerpiece on it. Don’t forget the fresh flowers centerpiece! Flowers bring color, beauty, and freshness to the Décor of the room.


James Farmer, Designer
