Country Dining Rooms – dining rooms are once again popular. A country dining room can be part of a breakfast nook. It can also help take the formal out of formal dining room. It’s the hub of the country house. A country dining room design creates a space where your family can gather for home cooked meals. It’s durable enough that you’ll be able to enjoy the conversation instead of worrying about protecting expensive china or the finish of the chairs.
Country dining room furniture is sturdy and comfortable. You can mix and match pieces like bringing in a painted, low dresser to use as a sideboard or buffet to display some of you collectibles. You can paint an old china cabinet a sage green to update it, save money and make it the focal point of the room. A country dining room table should be oversized. The table should be a farmhouse style rectangular in shape made from natural wood such as oak, pine, walnut or mahogany with wooden chairs or old benches that are similar in style and material. You can paint the legs and chairs a different color if you want to update your dining rooms. For a more modern approach just decorate the table with a country runner so your table is still decorating even when it isn’t dinner time.
When choosing colors for a country dining room a modern country design focuses on cool colors like green, blue and cream, but these colors can be unappetizing. Or you may choose more of a French Country feel and bring in rich mustards and terra cottas. If you do use the cooler colors then go with sunflower accents to bring in the richer tones. Then use a gray or chocolate brown on the walls and bring in bright yellow and orange accessories.
Anyone who really feels that home is where the heart is may want to think about a country dining room theme. It gives you a casual feeling so you’ll be more likely to use the room; it won’t just be for holiday’s. A country dining room is a space that you enjoy with friends or family.
