The dining room should not be overcrowded with show pieces or furniture's as it will invite more dust into the room. We need to stay healthy; hence it is always better to have fewer items in our dining room. Never keep a flower vase in the middle of a dining table as dust will cling on to it and we do not clean it daily before meals.

Also dining room should not be a part of your living room; it should be a separate room with an easy entry to the kitchen. This helps in serving better. I have heard that as per vaastu, as soon as you open your main door, dining room should not be visible, hence plan your dining room accordingly.

In the dinning room, the dinning table should be placed preferably to the walls if the dining room is small. If the dinning room is larger, then it should be placed in between. To the walls, that face the table, a large picture of fruits should be placed so that the members really feel the appetite to eat something. On the ceiling chandelier should be placed preferably large. The table should be decorated with just one flower pot.
