A mirror is a small room's best friend. It opens up space like nothing else and reflects light. Use strategically placed mirrors on the wall. Using more than one might be an even better idea. Simple window treatments help keep fussiness away. Ornate swags and valances could be distracting and too overpowering in any small space. Simple panels can do the job nicely. If you need more privacy, layer with blinds.
You put so much care into selecting the menu, choosing the wine and preparing the meal—you and your guests deserve a dining room that’s just as perfect. Elevate your space from family dinners to fine dining and before you know it, your friends will be calling to make reservations.
We all know that a dining room needs a table and chairs. But what kind of a table and which chairs? What else might be needed in your dining room? A china cabinet? Sideboards? Serving carts? Or some other kind of storage, because your dining room also doubles as your home-office? How big is your dining room? Do you have a large space at your disposal? A cavernous room with a small table will look cold and empty, while a too small space with a large table and chairs will seem unpleasantly crowded. Always measure your room before buying furniture, and remember to leave enough room around your furniture to move around easily.
Many homes today are not outfitted with a designated space for formal dining—but if you love hosting dinners, then don't let this stop you. With the right pieces in place, your great room can turn formal in a flash. A table with leaves is a must—when you're not hosting, you'll need it to take up minimal space. Likewise, your other furniture should be able to flex when not in use. A sofa table can provide serving space, and consider a pair of accent chairs for seating.
