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. 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.
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.
A seldom used room can be furnished with high maintenance finishes and fabrics while a dining room that is used every day should be more functional. Look for sturdy and easy to clean furniture surfaces if young children will be eating there. If you use your dining room to work, read or converse, consider comfortable chairs. Do small children use it? Consider hardy finishes, and fabrics that can be cleaned easily. For a seldom used dining room, you may even consider designating some other purpose to it more suited to how you live. It's just a dining room only if you say so.
Open up a smaller space by using colors that provide a background that makes your space look bigger. Do not clutter it with unnecessary decor, but mirrors or other reflective surfaces might be helpful. There are many options for dining room lighting: chandeliers, pendants, sconces or floor lamps that come in many different styles from cutting edge contemporary to nostalgic traditional.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.
