In dining rooms, art is used to create a focal point and also provoke conversation from guests seated at the table. Consider a youthful, cheery approach to dining room art by having children’s art professionally mounted and framed with grown-up material. Instead of museum glass, opt for non-glare acrylic which is kid-safe and easy to clean.
