Dining room is the heart of the home

Whether your dining room needs a complete makeover or just a few basic design upgrades like a fresh coat of paint on your walls or floor, the possibilities are endless. 

Now, no matter what you have in your home, you can create a look that is totally your own and absolutely stunning. A dining room is a room for consuming food. In modern times it is usually adjacent to the kitchen for convenience in serving, although in medieval times it was often on an entirely different floor level. Historically the dining room is furnished with a rather large dining table and a number of dining chairs; the most common shape is generally rectangular with two armed end chairs and an even number of un-armed side chairs along the long sides.

The history of Łańcut is much older than the castle erected in 1642. It goes back to the times of King Casimir III the Great, who founded here a town in accordance with the Magdeburg Rights in the 14th century. At the time Łańcut was owned by the Pilecki family, who had connections with the royal Jagiellonian Dynasty. The Great Dining Room and chapel were all designed by Chrystian Piotr Aigner and Bauman.

Designing the perfect Dining Room

  • Choose items that are to scale
    This sounds like a no-brainer, but it can be hard to remember when you stumble on a piece you really love or if you’re trying to stretch the function of a smaller room. The larger the room, the longer the table you should have–and vice versa. For extra-small or corner spaces where you don’t do a lot of entertaining, consider a round table which is easier to navigate around and takes up less space than one with corners.
  • Add contrast
    Visual contrast is what makes all rooms feel alive, beautiful, interesting, and unique, and the dining room is no exception.
  • Design with function in mind
    The most important consideration when designing your dining room is how exactly you’ll be using it. Do you eat every meal there, every day—or is it holidays-0nly? Are you hosting dinner parties every other weekend, or does the table double as a craft room for the kids? Knowing the answers to these questions is paramount when it comes to choosing materials and even which pieces of furniture are necessary for your space.
