Tray ceilings are a contemporary architectural feature that have ended up in way too many traditional style homes. They try to fill our need for unique detail in our otherwise generic interiors. A tray ceiling, which is an inverted or recessed ceiling, creates the illusion of height. Depending on the type of wood and colors you choose, you can make the room look traditional, contemporary or even rustic. Wooden planks or reclaimed wood are great options for that rustic effect.
Enhance your dining room with the addition of an area rug. From simple to bold, the colors and shape you choose are up to you and your home's decorative style. If possible, buy your area rug when you buy your dining room table. This will help you when the color matching and decision time comes. If you buy separate, try to keep the dining room set and carpet neutral.
