The dining area has to be located in close proximity to the kitchen. This will create an ease in transporting food or cutlery to set the table from the kitchen to the dining room. It also creates a visual connection between the two areas. There has been a trend to build a kitchen made up of glass walls or to have no walls at all to make it completely visible from the dining area. This creates an open effect and makes space looks spacious. But it is very important to maintain neatness in this case at every moment so that the purpose of creating visual harmony is not defeated.

This also involves smart picking of furniture. One needs to be sure that the dimensions of the room support and match with the dimensions of the dining table and the chairs, so that nothing looks out of place or unnecessary.
Lighting can be an important factor as it can either make or break the ambiance. One has to make a choice between natural or artificial light. The kind of lights used can affect the mood one wants to create. Some lights create a dimmer vibe while some create a warm, intimate and focused vibe. So whether to pick a crystal chandelier, modern adjustable lamps and what color of bulbs needs to be used is all subjective.

The storage has to be easily accessible and also should never get in the way or make the place look cramped. So, it is important to have a perfect blend of décor for your dining room so that it can complement your family gatherings.
