Whether you own a humble home with an understated dining area, a huge mansion with a formal dining room or something in between, the right table linens can make or break your look. It does not matter if you are serving an elaborate holiday dinner or just having a few friends over for brunch; you want your table to look its best, and that means dressing it for success.
Coordinating or Contrasting Shades?
Color is obviously an important consideration for the well-dressed table, but do you prefer coordinating or contrasting shades? Both options have their merits, so take a look around your home and look for clues in your existing décor.
Do you love the stylistic beauty of contrasting shades, or the subdued and understated tones of coordinating colors? Do you want to create an elegant showplace where your business associates can share a delicious gourmet meal, or a casual space where friends and family can swap stories and laugh away the cares of the day? The answers to these questions will help you create a look that is truly your own, one that the whole family is sure to appreciate.
Know Your Size
No matter which colors you choose, it is important to get the size right. It can be easy to under- or overestimate the size of your kitchen table, especially if the overall room size is larger or smaller than normal. Even a tiny table can look huge in a small dining room, while a large dining room table may seem shrunken in a large space.
Instead of simply guessing at what size tablecloth and table runner you need, take the time to measure the space carefully. Write the measurements down and take them with you to the store or online shopping site.
Formal, Informal or a Bit of Both?
When dressing your table for success, you need to think about the type of entertaining you plan to do. If you will be hosting monthly dinner parties or holding high-end gatherings at your home, only the best table runners and most elegant linen tablecloths will do. If your meals are mostly informal affairs for friends and family, practicality and convenience will be more important than a formal look and feel.
For many people, a combination of formal and informal is the best approach. You may choose a top quality set of formal table linens, including an elegant linen tablecloth and stylish table runners, but also pick up a few informal and less expensive tablecloths and table runners. That way you can switch out whenever you like, setting an elegant or informal table as the need arises.
No matter what kind of home you own or what kind of table you set, choosing the right linens is very important. The quality of your table runners, tablecloths and other linens says a great deal about your preferences, taste and style, so make that first impression a great one.
