If you feel like it is time to get new shapes and colors into the dining room, then you must also be aware that there are a lot of things to consider when doing so. The budget, space requirements, the things you want added and removed are only the tip of the iceberg. You will need to be careful when you are getting expert opinions, as well as thinking that you can add everything you want.Be mindful of the measurements
You will need to have your blueprint with you when you get opinions from experts. Make sure that you specify the sizes of the partitioning or whichever structural and other changes you want done to the dining room that you have. And also try to get opinions from several architects and surveyors for your plans. This way you can get an average of how much the prices on the market are and it will be easier for you to negotiate prices.
New furniture or old furniture
If you are going to buy new furniture then you will need the measurements for these to incorporate into the layout plans. Otherwise you will end up with less than or more than the space that you want. But you will need to be updated on the styles, sizes and the accessories that you want to have in the dining room. You might actually be able to get some good recommendations from your architect with regard to buying new furniture.
If you are keeping your old furniture then there will be no need for you to go out of the way to get measurements. Most surveyors and architects do their own measuring. Nevertheless be sure to have a deep cleaning done for the whole place before inviting anyone.
The main centerpiece of a dining room is the dining table and its accessories. Whether you are reusing your old one after a deep cleaning in Dubai and some varnishing, or buying brand new, make sure that it looks the best in the room. If you frequently have large groups of people then go for a large rectangular table. And although round tables look sophisticated, they are not the best at seating more than six people at a time. Dining tables with removable leaf is the best for seating more people when you have a large gathering.
When doing the layout, have a basic plan on how you want the appliances and furniture arranged. Be clear when you are explaining these things to your surveyors and architects. Ask them to do a sketch on how they think they should go with the layout to make sure that they understand your requirement.
