Dining rooms have different uses from house to house, but one thing is for sure - it’s a place to come together. Whether you eat there every night, or only with guests during the holidays, your dining room should feel complete. By complete, we mean not just a table and some chairs. Breathe some life into your dining room with furnishings that show off your style.
To get you started putting together the perfect dining room, here are some things you’ll need:
- Console Table - Yes, you need at least two tables in your dining room. When you have enough guests to fill the table, you’re most likely going to need more space for food, condiments, or extra beverages. Also, when you’re not using it for extra food space, they make a great place to store all that expensive china that you only use twice a year.
- Plants - You don’t have to go all out and have your dining room more green than your garden, but you’d be surprised how one plant can brighten up a whole room. If you’re tight on space or don’t trust yourself to take care of a plant, then you can always get a fake ficus tree that everyone will enjoy. (Just don’t forget to dust it off before guests come over.)
- Vase - Whether you’re a flower lover or not, there’s a chance someone will buy you flowers at some point. You can also use the vase for things besides flowers too, like potpourri or decorative branches. The vase will create a centerpiece for the table and can also be used as a conversation starter.
- Stemware - Extra glasses in the dining room will save you a trip to the kitchen when you’re enjoying a meal. They may also come in handy if you come back to the dining room for dessert and want more to drink. The glasses will also save your guests some time not having to look through each of your cabinets to find one.
- Table Linens - A table cloth might not be an everyday dining room accessory, but when you have guests over it will certainly make the dinner feel fancier. To make it even classier, grab some place mats and linen napkins while you’re at it.
