Dynamic Dining Rooms For Dinner Party Wannabes

Do you dream of being the hostess with the mostest? Thanks to lots of popular reality TV shows that focus on contestants’ skills at hosting dinner parties, more and more of us are having a go ourselves and staging special nights for our friends and relatives. It’s not just winning cookery skills that will see you crowned as a fantastic host, you also need to be able to create a relaxed and very sophisticated atmosphere too. The best way to do that is to start off by improving your dining room’s decor. Just follow these steps, and you will end up with a dining room fit for the most elegant parties ever!

Create Space
If you have a long guest list, you will need a lot of space to fit everyone in! This shouldn’t be a problem if you already have a fairly large dining room. However, if yours is slightly on the small side, you might need to rearrange some furniture. It could also be an idea to remove bulky items of furniture, such as chests of drawers, that won’t be required. You could simply move them into the next room. If your dining room has some French doors, you should open these so that it feels like the room flows out into the garden. However, that will only work if the weather is good!

Stick To One Design
The key to a good interior design is simplicity. And that means sticking to just the one design! So, next time you need to redecorate your dining room, think about which style of decor you want to go for. You might want to copy the contemporary styles as seen on www.danetti.com or go for a more rural, vintage look. Sticking to just the one design can help keep your room focused, and will prevent the overall look from being too sloppy.

Add A Centrepiece And Table Decorations
Many hosts like to bring some extra decorative features into their dining rooms just before the guests arrive. These can really top off the overall decor of the room and can help add a nice touch of sophistication. One thing that every host adds to their table is a gorgeous centrepiece. You can buy them, but it’s a much nicer touch to make your own. There are some excellent ideas right here: www.countryliving.com.

Keep Cleaning In Mind
You might think that all of the hard work that comes with dinner parties is all the cooking and food preparation. But, in actual fact, you will find that you work hardest ones all the guests have gone home - that’s because there will be a whole lot of cleaning and washing up that needs to be done! To make things easier on yourself, create a dining room that is super easy to clean. Use wipeable materials, especially for the table and floor. Mopping a floor will take half the time than trying to get stains out of a carpet!
