The dining room, whether it is an exclusive room or part of an open area, is a fundamental part of the home. Although we usually do family meals in the kitchen, when we invite friends or family we usually use the dining room. It is an area that we reserve generically for the social relation, for that reason the aspect of the dining room is usually taken care of as much as possible. When we have guests, it matters what we serve them on the plate and where we serve them, the presentation and the environment come into play. Now let's take care of how that environment should be, whatever the decorative style of the room, the rules are for everyone.
The decoration of the dining room begins by respecting and following the decorative style of the room where we are going to install it, although it is obvious that it does not stop being remarkable. We have to create a point of interest, something attractive that attracts attention.

It is possible to create a cozy and cozy corner, a magnificent starting point to enjoy tasty dishes.

The furniture we choose for the dining room should be consistent with the rest of the room, both in style and colors. Another fundamental point is the arrangement of such furniture, we must think well where to place the table and chairs. The most important furniture of a dining room is the table and the chairs, that is evident, but the presentation of these is also very important. We must find the best possible place.
The lighting is a complement to the decoration of the dining room as well as all the rooms. But in the dining room, which should be a pleasant and welcoming place, lighting is especially important. It must be warm and natural but at the same time it must be powerful enough so that diners can appreciate the visual virtues of the dishes without lighting alterations.
