Take note of these handy hints:

Mirrors can be great for the dining area as it can create an illusion of space.

You may use table runners to add color to the area. To have a more personal look, you can use your own choice of fabric. Table runners can also moonlight as placemats when placed across dining chairs.

Display your collection of plates, ceramics, and other knickknacks on a buffet table or a china cabinet.

Styling Trick: Create a focal point.

When your dining table isn't set, you can still make it pretty by placing eye-catching details that can serve as your focal point. In this dining setup, the eye is drawn to the candelabra, vase, and fresh fruits at the center of the table. The table runner serves as an accent.
