Most dining room decor centers on the table and chairs used for dinners at home, family gatherings and parties. The table and chairs usually come in a set and can also include other dining room decor options such as china cabinets, serving tables that sit along the wall, bars with stools or small cabinets to hold serving dishes or liquor.
All of this dining room decor can come in a vast array of styles, materials and colors and what you buy only depends on your personal taste.
Traditional dining room decor is fashioned from carved wood, usually stained a darker neutral tone. Combine this furniture with elegant draperies with tasseled tiebacks, a crystal chandelier overhead and pretty damask tablecloth.
Country style dining room decor is also usually made from wood, but it will have a more rugged or down-home appearance. Pale wood stain and paint makes a bigger appearance in this style. Instead of a chandelier, consider a hanging candelabra or a wagon wheel style light with candle flame light bulbs in it. Checkered or patterned calico curtains and tablecloths will look lovely in this dining room decor scheme.
Modern dining room decor styles introduce metal, glass and plastic to the furniture material palette. Chairs are frequently upholstered and furniture has a unique finish, shape or accents. This is the place for artistic light fixtures and probably know table linens at all. A modern decor collection may tend toward the minimalist.
