When a home has a smaller than normal dining room, the decoration of this room becomes a bit complicated if we don’t have much idea and don’t know where to start. We must think carefully about the shape and size of both the furniture and all the decorative elements to take advantage of the space and make our small dining room as elegant and welcoming as a large living room. In this article, we want to help you with some simple tricks that will help you decorate a small dining room.
Steps to follow:
There are two key factors that help us to enlarge a space in our house, the first of which is to use light tones and pastels to paint the walls. Colors like white, ivory, yellow, or pale salmon are perfect shades to bring more lighting and brightness to the dining room. We will add a touch of color with decorative objects such as small rugs, flowers, or paintings.
The second key element to make the dining room appear larger is, without a doubt, to place mirrors. They are objects that offer greater spatial amplitude and multiply the natural light that enters through the windows and doors. Place one or two on the wall, you will find modern, classic, simple, extravagant designs… among which you can choose the one you like best.
As for the furniture, it is best to opt for low-height furniture and determine the shape and size of each of them. Round glass or acrylic tables are more flattering for small spaces than the typical rectangular solid wood tables. Think that a rectangular dark wood table will be very heavy and absorb a lot of light. Accompany the glass table with thin chairs, with fine lines, and armrests to save space.
You can take advantage of the rest of the space to place other decorative elements such as floor lamps, sideboards, small tables with decorative objects, or shelves.
Order is essential in small spaces. Having all things well placed and stored is the best way to make a room not look smaller than it already is. If you want to have a piece of furniture to store and display your most precious crockery or other objects, incorporate a small display cabinet in a corner of the dining room and try to fit it perfectly with the decoration style of the room.
In small dining rooms, it is important to have good lighting. We recommend combining natural light with artificial lighting and choosing simple curtains that are not too heavy and thick. Remember that the more light enters the dining room, the greater the feeling of spaciousness will be.
