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 dining room is one of the most important places in your home. You can have a good dining room that is exquisitely designed and positioned but you may be let down by the dinning set if you are not keen when buying dining room furniture. One of the reasons why the dining room stands out as a special place is because most of the family meetings are carried out in the dining room and the dinner is time for every member of the family to be there. You therefore don’t want those embarrassing moments when your guests are present. Off particular interest is the number of seats that your dining has, compared to the size off the family. This is one of the most important things that you should always consider when you are procuring the dining room furniture.
Window coverings are an important part of southwest décor. If possible, deciding to leave the windows uncovered so that the outside view flows inward to warm the room, would be a wonderful choice. If privacy is an issue, draperies would be the best choice. Draperies made from southwestern pattern fabric may be used. Mexican blankets make great window treatments. Wrought iron rods lend a touch of rustic charm and work well in a southwest room.
The location of a dining room depends on factors like the proximity to the living room, the kitchen, wash basin, etc. The east, south or west parts of the house are ideal locations. Preferably, the dining room should be near the kitchen to facilitate the easy carrying of the food. It should also be near the living room. In the United States, you have the dining room adjacent to the living room used only for dining with guests or on special occasions. For informal meals, a dinette is the space adjacent to the kitchen where meals are served. Today, most modest size flats don’t have enough room for an independent or solo dining room. What is done is they integrate the living area and dining area into one. They may have a space adjacent to the kitchen where small tables and chairs are placed. The space is called a breakfast nook. Or you can have a breakfast bar instead, often higher than the regular kitchen counter with bar stools.
