These days, many apartments have small dining rooms or small dining space. Furnishing these small areas is a little bit difficult. But you can furnish these small dining spaces by applying some tricks.
First, you should know that painting the walls with a darker color and leaving the ceiling white will make your small space look larger than it actually is. As well as installing striped wallpaper or adding a large mirror to the wall can make the small space looks larger. If you are not able to apply these options, then think about a way to make your dining table and chairs looks different.
When it comes to chairs, the armless chairs are recommended in small spaces because they don’t take much space. When you are going to buy the dining chairs, look for chairs that have openings or a lighter profile. Transparent chairs of acrylics or open back chairs are also good choices. These types of chairs prevent any needless visual barriers in the room creating an illusion of larger space.
A different way to have extra seating is to place a thin bench along one wall. This bench can easily be pulled out when you have guests to provide extra seating. If your space allows, you can choose a multi-functional table and chairs. For instance, rather than choosing a conventional dining table, choose a game table if you are like playing games. By doing such tricks you will save space by having one item that serves two purposes.
For the dining room table, you can save much space by using a round table instead of a square one. Also choosing a pedestal round table is better than choosing a four-legged table because pedestal table saves much space. If you want to open up a small room, a glass topped table will do.
Another idea you can do in the small space is to have a long table as it will make your room look longer. What is more, it frees up more space around the table and chairs allowing an easy flow around them. If you place chairs on only one side and a thin bench on the other side of a slender table, you can increase the ample space you have. Lastly, a bistro table is a good option for the small spaces because a taller table makes your floor space look wider than it is.
