Room to go out to eat – With a good interior design, especially in a small space, both the processing and the selection of the right elements are applied. Small dining rooms, in particular, are more of a challenge than most other small spaces simply because dining tables take up a lot of space. A small dining room looks bigger when I design it with smaller furniture, minimal accessories, and a palette of bright colors.
In a small space you can use all traditional dining room elements if you start with a small table. A small rectangular table that goes well with four armless chairs, two on each long side, takes up less space than even a standard size round table. Only the most compact rooms that do not offer enough space for a reduced buffet on one wall. Old desktops or library tables, just like some modern desks, have the right proportions.
In general, the first and last piece of advice when designing a small dining room is to use a round table. An oval table is another space saver if the room is long, but if the room is square, go for a round table. It doesn’t matter what the table looks like, but a pedestal table takes up less space than a table with four legs. Likewise, a folding wing table takes up much less space when its leaves have been reduced. Glass tables or completely acrylic tables give the illusion that the room is bigger than it is.
