Fashionable foods. Trends in tableware are influenced by fashionable foods and the way in which we eat them. 'Restaurants and their menus have a huge bearing on what people buy,' says Dik Delaney, head of design at Royal Doulton. 'Often food lovers are keen to see how chefs use tableware before taking the ideas home and recreating them'. Gone are the days when 'proper' dining meant dusting off granny's best china and serving up on a full dinner set. Now we're more likely to take our cue from a local gastropub and enjoy hearty British recipes from rustic earthenware, or an Asian pick 'n' mix banquet from glossy lacquered bowls. Think of jewel-like nigiri or seaweed-wrapped California rolls served on a round dish - somehow not right? Graphic foods like these look best lined up in regimented rows on square plates. 'They're still the only appropriate shape on which to serve sushi,' says chef Bill Granger.
Also, a table with drop leaves is excellent to use in a small dining room because the leaves are right there and are not stored in a closet in another room. You can just put the drop leaf down when you want the table smaller and then put it up very easily when you want more places at the table. Don't be afraid to mix large with small in a dining room, such as a small table paired with a large mirror or some type of large server. It gives style to the room and also gives the sensation that the room is more spacious than it really is. It also adds a focal point to the room.
Refurbish. One of the biggest secrets of budget dining room design is to use what you already have! Begin your design project by thinking about what it is that you want from your space, and how your existing furniture differs from your design. If your existing furniture is still sturdy, there are lots you can do to improve or alter the aesthetic appeal. The solution could be as simple as a coat of paint in a fun new color, or replacing the top or your old table with a new one in a more contemporary shape. Buff out old scratches, and give aging wood a new coat of polyurethane or furniture wax.
