Fix Up your Dining Room for the Holidays
The small round table in the dinette may be great for casual meals with your family, but inviting overnight guests can mean that you need extra chairs around the dining room table to seat more people.
Decorators know that designing a room around a focal point adds immediate interest and defines the character of the room. A free-standing fireplace, an elaborate bar or a curio cabinet with interior lighting to highlight a collection can become the focal point and add high visual impact. A game table in the entertainment space can become a focal point, just as an executive desk is the attention-grabber in a home office and a china cabinet commands attention in a dining room.wts
