Although shades of brown dominate the marketplace, you do have options when it comes to the table’s color. Black exudes elegance. However, if the table has a veneered finish, it will be nearly impossible to camouflage any scratching. Red, a color that restaurants frequently use because it can stimulate your appetite, works well for a dining room table. This is true of all primary colors.
Natural lighting has the ability to trick the mind into thinking a space is bigger than it is. Let in as much natural light as you can, if natural light is available in the room, and watch your space get bigger. Chandeliers can still be hung, even in a small dining room, however, too large of a chandelier, and you will eat up a lot of ceiling space. This will instantly visually shrink your room. A small chandelier that matches your taste, color, theme and budget is what you will want to stick with. Check with different lighting stores in your area to see if they have any special deals, sales or items they cant sell, that you may be able to go view.
One thing you don’t want to do is buy pieces of furniture that are too big for the room. Keep your furniture scaled to the size of the room to avoid an overcrowding situation, or claustrophobic. A smaller dining room table will be functional as well as it can be a focal point of the room. Lighter color woods give the illusion that the room is bigger, as opposed to darker colored woods, which can visually, eat up the space.
When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
