Furnishing a small dining room can present a challenge, as any small space can be challenging. However, you may very well end up having a more efficient and attractive space since the lack of space can force you to focus on the essentials, and let go of what is unnecessary. Scale might very well be the single most important factor to consider, especially when you are furnishing a smaller sized dining room. Your dining furniture should be scaled according to the space you have.
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.
If it is a fairly large room, you may want to consider including other pieces of furniture such as screens, sideboards or china cabinets. If you want to downplay the size you may also want to use heavy drapes or large rugs. Wider, bigger or upholstered chairs or chairs with arms may be used. Before you begin furnishing your dining room, determine how you would normally use it. Will it be used every day, or only once in a while to entertain?
Most dining rooms are illuminated by a dining room chandelier. Whether your taste is traditional, contemporary, or something else altogether it's likely that you'll have a chandelier hanging over your dining room table. A chandelier is often the focal point in a dining room, so it's important to get a dining room chandelier that not only works well with your décor but that is also the right size. The purpose of a buffet or sideboard is to provide storage for extra dishes, flatware and linens, and also to serve as a surface area for placing dishes when you decide to serve family or buffet style.
