The later months of fall are marked by important holidays for many families, and decorating expert Karl Lohnes recently shared some tips for creating an intimate atmosphere in a dining room that can serve as a peaceful gathering place for friends and relatives, according to The Evansville Courier & Press.

First and foremost, Lohnes recommends finding a dining table that suits the shape of the room. If the space is rectangular, homeowners may want to use a similar shaped table for meals. A more square area may be complemented nicely by a circular surface.

Chair cushions can add a touch of comfort and luxury to the seating arrangements, but it's also important not to invest in fabrics that can only be dry-cleaned, because the occasional spill is inevitable at family gatherings, particularly ones with small children.

To create a distinct dining space, the news source also recommends painting the walls a deeper color than the rooms around it, because this will make the area stand out.

For a soft, natural touch to the windows, homeowners may want to consider wood blinds. These beautiful window treatments can help foster a dignified and relaxed atmosphere, even during a chaotic holiday celebration.
