Don't forget candles for those special occasions. Whatever source you choose for lighting, make sure it has a dimmer switch, so that you can adjust the amount of light you need. One rule of thumb for hanging chandeliers: there should be at least 34" inches of clearance space between the chandelier and the table. If it is a wider chandelier, make sure that people won't bump their heads when getting up or sitting down.
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.
If formal dinners with fine china aren't your thing, then reinvent this space with a statement-making dining set. Instead of ornate embellishments, opt for clean lines and/or casual finishes that are true to your personal style. Even if you don't own fine dishware, don't discount the value of a china cabinet. It gives you space to show off your favorite finds—and honestly, you can never have too much storage.
When most of us think of dining rooms we think of tables, buffets, chairs and chandeliers. But something equally as important in the dining room are the curtains and drapes. Amidst all of the hard furniture that tends to fill this room it's wonderful to have some fabric and add a touch of softness. So even if you don't normally include flowing curtains and drapes it's worth considering adding some to the dining room.
