Being outside, chairs and dining tables are at risk of being damaged by sun and rain. Therefore, choose outdoor furniture that is already designed using materials that are resistant to all kinds of weather. For example, such as synthetic rattan, solid wood, or made from metal. For wood materials, make sure you provide a waterproof coating and mushrooms to keep the wood durable. Besides resistant to weather changes, outdoor furniture treatment is also easier.
Choose a weatherproof floor covering material and easy to maintain. Five types of floor covering materials you can choose include ceramics, natural stone, wooden deck, cement board deck and plastic wooden composite deck.
Do not forget the lighting element. Because like the kitchen, dining activities also require lighting is quite bright. Put a standing light in the corner of the room or chandelier if the dining area is shaded by the roof. Then add some decorative candles to change the atmosphere to make it more romantic.
Put some decorative pots with beautiful flowering plants to decorate your dining area. The presence of potted plants is reinforcing the nuances of nature, ‘bring’ you as if one with the natural surroundings.
