Although some people only use their dining rooms for special occasions like Thanksgiving – dining room design should not be overlooked! If you create a beautiful dining room you will be inspired to use it regularly. 

1. The romance of the stone wall with candles can not be denied.  This is a warm and inviting room.

2.  If your space is limited why not try using a bench on one side.  It adds some character and helps solve the space problem at the same time.

4.  If you love Country French style, you will be very comfortable in this dining area.  It’s sunny and relaxed – who wouldn’t want to eat here? 

3.  This contemporary dining space is perfect for small groups or for cards or board games.  It can be expanded when needed for larger groups. The large mirror makes the area look much larger than it is.

5.  This ingenious solution for a dining room utilizes a space in the entry very effectively.  Two benches keep the footprint small while accommodating 8 people.

6.  The relaxed formal style of this dining room is created by using an iron & stone table and adding & French gilt chairs for an unexpected contrast in formality. This room is perfect for either formal or casual dining.
