Thinking about where you place the furniture in the room is an additional tip for decorating a small dining room. Even your dining room might add to your well being when designed with Feng Shui in mind. Easy access into a room will make it seem more spacious, so place your furniture away from the doors. If you can, steer the eye from the open door to a bigger piece like a server or mirror can help divert the eye and give the illusion of space.
When it comes to loading the room with furniture, keep to small-to-medium sized fittings. One means to maximize space is to use a table with leaves, in lieu of a huge dining table which will free up some room while allowing additional seating when necessary. You can also fix any monotony in the decorating approach of your dining room by mixing large with small, so though you might decide to try the small table, add into your design a large mirror or server, which not only gives some style, but also gives you the feeling that the room is more spacious than it really is.
A Dining Area, Not a Room. Not everyone has a separate space in their home to use as a dining room. If your eating area consists of a bar or kitchen island, you can still spice up this space with some modern style bar stools. Designs include slightly sophisticated stools, whimsical style stools, and extremely unique stools. You can select from white, black, or red. Mixing the colors will liven up your dining area.
