[en] Some of life’s best moments are those shared around the dining room table. Some of the nicest stories are created in dining rooms just like the handles that decorate the furniture. There are as many different types of dining rooms as there are families. There are large dining rooms, small ones, some are full of different things and others are more minimalist in design some are colourful and others are monochromatic. However, they all share one thing in that they are pleasant areas to be in, providing a sense of comfort and well-being where conversation flows and where we experience unforgettable moments.
At Viefe® we know the importance of the dining room to the home. That’s why we want to give you some little tricks you can use to really enhance this most shared area of the house.
One of the most important aspects of this space has everything to do with light, regardless of which style you want to achieve. It really is great if this area of the house can benefit from receiving lots of natural light. In addition we suggest that you play around with the use of light in general, especially atmospheric lighting, to create the perfect sense of illumination for every given situation. For example, playing around with warm lighting gives a feeling of warmth and comfort.
On the other hand, it’s important to bear in mind the colour of the dining room as it directly influences our state of mind and, what’s more, it allows us to change the room’s visual characteristics and modify the atmosphere that you wish to create. To give the idea of a bigger, longer dining room, try painting one of the walls a darker colour than the others. If you want it to appear that your dining room has a higher ceiling than it actually has, then we recommend that you go for stripes or vertical designs on the walls.
Finally, you need to take into account the knobs and handles, subtle accessories that give balance to this living space. If you want to create a dining room with a minimalist style, then use one single colour throughout the whole of the room and complement it with knobs and handles of the same colour or material as the furniture. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a more daring look which makes the furniture and the handles and knobs really stand out, we suggest that you go for a combination of different, opposing colours as decoration for your dining room.
