World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Create a divine dining room

The dining room is arguably the most important room in your home. It's where the family can gather in the evening to eat, drink and swap stories about the day. Family dinners may have fallen by the wayside to some extent in this mile-a-second world, but not entirely. Redesigning your dining room could be the first step toward recommitting yourself and your family to spending dinner time together.  

Getting the light right
As with any room in the house, lighting of the utmost importance when you're figuring out the new lay-out of your dining room. If you have large picture windows, those will provide the room with ample light at dinner time during the spring and summer when the days are longer. For those colder months, a hanging lamp or a chandelier is the perfect way to illuminate the delicious meal in front of you. Switch Hits has plenty of collections of decorative outlet covers with which you can spruce up the space, whether your taste is classic or modern, funky or subdued. 

If you're trying to achieve a clean modern look, check out Switch Hits' Art Deco or Colored Glass collections. They come in a variety of colors, so no matter what the color scheme in your dining room, you're sure to find something that matches. If you'd prefer something a little more dark, try the Vermont Slate collection. For an edgier look, try the Steampunk or Colors in Motion collections. 

All in the details
In the process of reworking the room, you want to make sure it's a reflection of your personality, while also being a welcoming space for the entire family. Southern Living suggests outfitting the room with fresh linens to add a touch of classic elegance. Try a solid pattern in any color, or reach for something a bit bolder with a checked or paisley table cloth. Top the look off with matching chair covers and napkins, and your dining room will be fit for a debutante. 

Better Homes and Gardens urges the DIY interior decorator in you to take it to the next level by making the dining room a multi-purpose space where the kids can do homework, and the adults will feel comfortable sitting back with a newspaper or a good book. It could even double as an arts and crafts room for the kids with the help of a plastic tarp that can be thrown over the usual linens.

Keeping the atmosphere fresh is sure to make the dining room a place the whole family can come together no matter what time of day it is!
