You have already learned that the glass reflects light and brightens a room but to get the most out of this you can place it by a window. It will draw even more light and make the room truly shine.

It will again reflect the light but this time it will give a soft glow to the room therefore actualizing the dream of a formal dining area.

On the other hand if the room is spacious a large square or oblong table will make the room feel full but not overpowered.
