You’re buying produce at the grocery store anyway–why not let it pull double duty as your dining table centerpiece? In fact, when you’re entertaining and your table will be packed with food, sometimes a large floral arrangement just isn’t practical. Keep it classy with a centerpiece of fruits or veggies.

Do not think of the dining room as a traditional dedicated room with four walls that serve no other purpose. With the advent of the open floor plan and its immense popularity, the ’60s and ’70s idea of box-like rooms seems all but redundant. Contemporary design is all about integrating the living room, dining space and the kitchen as one big, harmonious space. This is precisely why a small dining room is a good option, even if you do have some additional space to spare! Use an area rug to define the dining area. Large pendant lights, contemporary chandeliers and smart recessed lighting can also demarcate the boundaries in a subtle manner.
