You’re probably thinking that decorating your dining room will be one of your easiest design tasks.  Not so!  Unfortunately, once most people select their dining table and chairs they tend to feel their decorating is complete!

And while purchasing beautiful dining room furniture is always the biggest, most impressive part of your dining room makeover, there are many more design elements to take into consideration.  Design products such as window treatments, area rugs and lighting are equally important to your overall design concept.

Here are a few ideas you might want to consider before beginning your dining room makeover:

1.  Dining Chairs – far from a simple choice!    Look for comfort, as well as chairs that will enhance your overall design plan.  If you simply want to update the look of your dining room, consider slipper chairs – featuring gorgeous fabric that could coordinate with your window treatment design.  The simple addition of 2 of these beautiful chairs are guaranteed to give your dining room a whole new look!

2.  Dining tables – lots of shapes and sizes!  Be sure the size of your table fits not only your room, but your family as well.  Round and oval dining room tables provide an ease of conversation that most homeowners find very appealing.  Also, expandable tables, with drop leaves, built-in extensions or board inserts, are a must if you find yourself entertaining large gatherings.

3.  Window Treatments – beauty and elegance!  Nothing adds more style and grace to a dining room makeover than custom window treatments.  From luxurious side panels to elegant swag and jabot treatments – whatever you’re fancy – window treatments will add a much needed focal point to your new dining room design.
