A formal dining room is often anchored with Oriental carpets not conducive to a casual family dining area. Often quite costly, this type of rug should be appropriately cleaned, making it an unhealthy choice in an informal area where drink and food may be spilled, dogs are most likely pleasant and shoes track in mud. Replace it with a more casual, easy‐care carpet. Natural materials such as cotton and sisal give the space a laid‐back feel. Or leave the ground bare for a more streamlined look.
Formal dining room walls tend to be colored in dark hues and could have architectural features such as wainscoting and crown molding finished in dark stains. Removing paneling and molding might not exactly be cost‐effective, but color is. Choose colors that encourage an informal, inviting mood. Hues of white permit the room's other elements to stand out. Pastel hues are restful, while natural tones such as beige and gray go with any decor style. Banish formal draperies in favor of floaty sheers or simple Roman or matchstick shades.
