Create The Picture Perfect Dining Area

With a new beach home at Bay Forest in Bethany Beach, you’re going to have lots of company! Everybody knows that a mixture of guests and family and friends is going to create a lot of excitement and fun. However, when it comes to entertaining, you have to make sure each part of your home is suited to host – especially the dining area! Check out these simple ideas below for creating the picture perfect dining room that is ideal for hosting:


Easy clean up: When you choose materials for your dining room table and chairs, keep in mind that they should be easy to clean and maintain. Glass tabletops, leather seats, and slipcovers are good options if you have upkeep in mind.


Make it inviting: The less fussy your dining area is, the more your family and guests will use it. Don’t keep a tablecloth on the table every day and switch up the seating with different styles of chairs and benches. You always want the space to be approachable and not intimidating!


Don’t be afraid of color: Creating a beach home-friendly dining area doesn’t mean you have to stay away from bright colors! Pick one or two pops of color to make the dining room stand out, and don’t be afraid of patterns for your chairs and window treatments.

Prepare for a party: Chandelier lighting can be beautiful, but sometimes doesn’t give enough light when there is a large group of people around. Pendant lighting is a great way to cut costs and evenly distribute light in your dining area. Also, keep in mind that there should plenty of room around the table for people to move around.


Take a fresh approach: Because Bay Forest is just 3 miles to the surf and sand Bethany Beach, you’re going to be inspired by the beach for a lot of home design! The most popular ideas for the dining area in a beach home include whites and lights when it comes to color. Bringing natural elements into the room, like wood, sea grass, and shells will really play up the coastal vibe even more!


Keep it casual: Most likely, your dining area won’t be used just for eating, but also other everyday activities such as putting puzzles together, “eat when you want” breakfasts, game night, or happy hour drinks. Make your dining room easy enough to use everyday, but versatile enough to dress up for special occasions.
