5 common questions when decorating the dining room

When it comes to decorating the house, it is common for doubts to arise about how to compose a pleasant environment for the residents that combines elegance and practicality. The dining room, for example, is the calling card of any home. In it, people usually gather friends and family during meetings and parties. Therefore, choosing the decoration of this area can take time and raise questions. So, to help you with this task, architect Nicole Finkel answers the main questions. Look!

1. In compact dining rooms, how should we plan the space so it doesn’t feel cramped?

We must think about the space for people to pass between the chairs and the circulation of the environment, which must have a free span of at least 90 cm. Considering the measurements of the space, we can define which table model is most recommended for the project.

2. What is the minimum size for a dining table? What are the best materials for this furniture?

A round table for four people requires a minimum diameter of 1 m. To accommodate six people, the piece of furniture with a round top can measure 1.20 m and the square, 1.30 x 1.30 m. In the case of eight people, I suggest a table measuring 1.50 m (square of 1.60 m) and for 10 people around 1.80 m in diameter. The height of the table is 75 cm, in general, and there are no rules about the material. We can use wood, marble, glass. One tip is that it matches the rest of the finishes in the room.

3. What is the ideal distance between the chandelier and the table top? What kind of lighting should we use?

The distance between the body of lighting and the table top can vary from 70 to 90 cm. We can combine
more than one chandelier, yielding a very modern look, or choose something very different and striking, which will become the highlight of the decor. Avoid direct lighting, capable of disturbing or dazzling those sitting at the table. The ideal is to use indirect light, which brings comfort and leaves the environment intimate.

4. Can we mix chairs of different models?

Yes, it is worth mixing the models, but always maintaining a balance, which can be in the color, print or material. A sure-fire option is to choose all the same pieces and only bet on a different design at the ends of the table. More than being comfortable, the chair should be light and easy to handle. If you choose a fabric-covered seat and backrest, be sure to choose a material that is simple to clean.

5. Is it worth using a rug in the dining room? What is the correct size?

Yes, it is possible to have a mat under the dining room table. Ideally, each edge should be 1 m more than the area occupied by the table, as you need room to drag the chairs without them getting tangled in the rug. The model must consider the shape of the table. Give preference to fabrics resistant to washing, such as pure wool and 100% nylon.
