A large or fussy chandelier could take up too much visual room. Pick a chandelier that has simple lines and a small profile. That will create the effect of making your space appear larger. And that is how we come full circle to the scale. Remember it is all about scale.
In any dining space, the table is the most important element. For a formal look, you can't go wrong with traditional-style furniture. Its intricate elements like reeding, cabriole legs and veneer inlays make for an elegant, upscale look. 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.
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.
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?
