Have family dinner at the table
Make the conscious decision to have dinner at the table instead of eating in front of the TV. Creating a cozy atmosphere in the dining room can bring your family together. A good dining set is just the thing to make family dinners special.
The right dining table
A dining table is a statement piece that sets the tone of your decor. Wooden industrial dining tables are popular right now. Round marble dining tables are also trending, as well as oval-shaped sets with classical details. The table should be neither too small nor too big. Remember to measure the space of your room before making any decisions. It should be easy to walk around the entire table.
Make sure you have coordinating chairs for your dining table. Extra chairs are always good to have around for friends joining the meal as well. The seating set should not only look great but make your whole family comfortable during dinner. Velvet or leather covers are an option for those who want to enhance the chairs they already own.
Encourage your family to eat dinner at the table with soft lighting. Install lighting with a dimming feature in your dining room. If this is too much of a hassle, you can purchase a lamp with a dimmer that allows you to change the settings. As with your seating, make sure your lighting fixtures match the dining set.
Finish your dining room with decorative elements. For example, you can put a fresh bouquet in the center of your table or arrange dried flowers for low maintenance. Include some romantic candles in your table setting for ultimate coziness. Finally, hang photos of the family around your table from birthdays and vacations. Now your whole family is ready to enjoy some excellent meals together.
