Rules of Thumb: Dining Room Design

Check out these five simple, yet effective decorating tips for your dining room.

1.Let there be low-hung light
Your dining room table and chandelier should be closer than you may think. Hang fixtures 32-38 inches from top of table. If your light source takes up less than 1/4 the width of the table, opt for two identical fixtures splitting the center of the table.
2.Keep centerpieces at arm’s length
Place your elbow on the table. A centerpiece should be no taller than the distance from your elbow to your wrist so that guests can look one another in the eye.
3.Forgo matching furniture
Just as assorted plates create a casually sophisticated vibe, a mismatched dining table and chairs evokes a cozy feel.
4.Set boundaries
There should be 6-8 inches between the back of the chair legs and an area rug’s edge. A 8′ x 10′ rug is usually right on scale for a six-person rectangular dining table.
5.Play in the puddles
When it comes to daperies, you’re better off erring on the side of too much puddle than ‘high water’ hangings. Curtains that gather about 1-3 inches on the floor are just right. This look is also forgiving in a home with uneven floors.
