During ancient times, people generally ate in the kitchen sitting on the floor. It was more convenient to serve the food near the kitchen. When there were parties, people ate in the living hall. The dining room was often on an entirely different floor level. Historically, it is furnished with a large dining table and chairs. The most common table shape is rectangular with two armed end chairs and an even number of unarmed side chairs along the long sides.
Many people are tempted to design their dining room in a formal way where everything is perfectly matched, looking like they are living among Better Homes and Garden magazine pages. This style may please some, but for others, creative energies are better delighted using a Southwestern theme decor. A southwest style dining room lends warmth and says ”welcome.” An important idea to keep in mind when developing such a dining room, is to bring in a casual, comfortable, and imperfect feel. While shopping for items for a Southwest dining room, places like flea markets and second hand stores can be a great source for finding just the right distressed piece.
The very first conclusion we need to settle on is whether to go for armchairs or armless chairs. In general we find armless dining room chairs most preferred by all. They have more of a modern appeal and are comfortable. On the other hand dining arm chairs give a formal appearance. In case of small dining tables, armless dining chairs solve the issue of space. One can accommodate an extra member on the dining table as armless chairs do not ask for much space. If the room is large enough to have an elegant dining table then armchairs will compliment it the best. One option which is popular these days is to have the end chairs for rectangular dining tables as chairs with arms and the rest are without arms.
A sideboard or hutch is an important piece of furniture for your dining room if space allows. This gives room to display special dishes but need not match the table exactly. Use colors like red and green to unify your decorating project and to bring life to your dining room. No matter what type of flooring your room hosts, a welcoming touch to a southwestern dining room is a textured colorful rug under the table. Geometric patterns work nicely. Rich colors are blended by adding throw rugs as well as softening sounds in the room.
