Oly Via. Dining room. September 24th , 2017.
Whether its once a year or every night, we want our family and friends to be happy in the dining room with more than just our excellent food and company. Catering equally to tall, small, robust or svelte loved ones is a good goal. If you follow simple ergonomics guidelines when buying your dining table and chairs, your guests will feel comfortable and return again and again.
The larger your round table is, the harder it will be for all your guests to converse with one another — keep this in mind if you have a large dining room and are tempted to go with a round table.
If you can, leave 48 inches between the table and the entrance into the room. Having an arched entrance like the one in this picture stops the awkward bunching of people at your door when you announce that dinner is served.
Generally, the length of time any one person can sit comfortably on a dining chair is three to four hours less if the chair has no padding. Your chairs may already come with a fixed upholstered seat cushion; if not, having a detachable cushion made is not difficult. The insert should be firm and generous, as this not only will enhance the structure of the cushion but will keep your friends and family from visiting the chiropractor.
Heres the idea I love the most. As a kid, I remember taking private dance lessons at my teachers home. At that time I knew nothing about supplemental income. But now I see that her dining room created earning potential in her home. This ballet barre is in a spare bedroom, but the idea applies. Could there be money hidden in your dining room.
