How to Decorate a Dining Room Table

To decorate a dining table that harmonizes with the look and feel of your kitchen or dining room, it is important to consider how the table’s size, shape and material will fit into the room’s overall theme. By design, dining room tables set the scene for memorable events, like family gatherings, special meals and parties with friends. They are often rectangular or oval and are large enough to accommodate a larger number of guests than every day dining tables. While dining room tables are perfect for special events, they don’t have to feel serious or formal; rustic dining tables in warm wood, retro dining tables with mid-century modern accents and modern dining tables in glass and metal are all great options to refresh your dining area with unexpected touches. Kitchen dining tables are often smaller and better suited for everyday meals. Small round kitchen tables work well in cozy breakfast nooks and come in a variety of styles from sleek lacquered to wood trestle dining tables.
