7 myths about sleeping near plants
That’s right. Small dining rooms have just as much potential as bigger ones. All you need to do is choose the right pieces then sit comfortably and enjoy one of the most important parts of your home. And if you’re not sure where to begin, this is the post for you.
The mirror is the key
No doubt about it, a mirror is always a good idea, especially in smaller dining rooms. As well as brightening the place up, it also makes it feel larger. It’s the perfect way to decorate the room, too, so make sure you choose one that brings style and original design to the party. And because it hangs on the wall, it won’t take up any space. There are no downsides!
More light, more space
Finding the right lighting is especially important when space is limited. Ceiling lights are a great way to illuminate every nook and cranny. And of course, you need a well-chosen lightbulb. LED lightbulbs are kind to your wallet and the environment as they last longer and consume less.
The main character: the table
The dining table gives the whole space meaning. In a small dining room, a round table is the best option – as well as making the most of the space, no one is left on the end and conversation flows freely. But if you tend to get last-minute additional guests, an extendible table will mean there’s always room for more.
Choose lighter colours
Small dining rooms love a lighter shade – it’ll give the space a lighter feel and a cosy, relaxed atmosphere. If you’re planning to update the floor with style and natural warmth, opt for natural materials like jute. And if sustainability is important to you, a rug made from recycled PET is the answer.
So, now you know. A small dining area is a gem. All you need to do is uncover its charms and start enjoying it ASAP. If you need more ideas, check out our previous posts on how to match your dining room tables and chairs. Be inspired to create a dining room that’s small in size but huge in style.
