Cut crystal from the Thirties is a very good buy. You can often pick up sets in a similar style to modern Waterford, for example, but because it's more second-hand than antique, you don't have the inflated price tag to match. The huge red wine glasses that were everywhere a few years ago are not nearly so popular now. People have realised they can quickly finish a bottle of expensive wine by filling a couple of them, not to mention the amount of alcohol one can consume without really noticing. Smaller glasses are definitely back in favour again.
Casual Furniture Dining Room Ideas. One of the best ways to encourage lingering after a meal is to provide comfortable furniture. Hard wooden chairs with no padding don't encourage people to sit for long periods of time, and you may find your family and friends eager to jump up from the table after a meal. If you choose soft furnishings or padding for wooden chairs, guests can sit back and relax without feeling uncomfortable. The table should be a comfortable height, with the edge not too low where it hits people's knees. Any larger pieces of furniture should match your colour scheme and feel warm and inviting and not too formal.
The colours red and orange are thought to create a sense of excitement and encourage people's appetites. Earthy tones mixed with some reds or oranges can create a comforting environment and encourage people to linger and eat. You can also use earthy colours on the walls and complement it with reddish coloured chairs, table linens, and dining room decorations. The colours black and blue supposedly send off signals to not eat as much or watch what you eat. The colour blue is said to be a natural appetite suppressant, so when considering different dining room ideas blue may not be an ideal colour for the walls or décor. Mixing white into your dining room will encourage eating and snacking, which is why many restaurants use white for their linens and walls.
