Although dining rooms tend to be simple spaces, it is important that we make them cosy and attractive. After all, they are a meeting point and the perfect setting to share with friends and family. If you have few meters, take it easy! There is no reason to resign yourself to living without a dining room. You just need to use your imagination a little! With some simple tips, you can get the most out of it, regardless of the meters you have. I’m going to give you some tips to get it to look perfect.
The mirrors are an ace in the hole for any space to look more spacious and bright. If your dining room is very small, place a mirror on the wall and glue the table. You will be able to amplify its size and make the chairs look like duplicates.
There are dining rooms of all sizes, so even if you have fallen in love with one, think about your meters and choose the one that best suits your space and your needs. If, for example, there are two at home, you can have two chairs presented and another two or three folding ones stored to take out only when you have visitors.
Glass and Acrylic
As the most important thing is to optimize each meter, the greatest effort must be concentrated in ensuring that our dining room has everything without being overwhelming. Glass and acrylic are perfect materials to achieve this because they take up very little visual space and they look light.
Roundtables and Armless Chairs
The tables square or rectangular mark, by design, the number of diners. There are those who decide to install them in corners, sticking them completely to the wall, however, this effect tarnishes the dining room and makes it much less functional. The round tables, however, allow you the flexibility to seat more or fewer guests and dress the space in a more flirtatious way when you are few meters away.
The chairs are very important: they must be, above all, comfortable. However, if you have a few meters from your dining room, it is best that you decide on chairs that do not have arms. Although for some they are more comfortable, they take up much more and recharge the space too much.
Take Advantage of the Corners
If you have little room to place your dining room, the best thing you can do is take advantage of a corner. The effect will be a functional and collected space, perfect for a couple or a shared apartment.
The Nordic is one of those styles that we began to see some time ago, but it does not go out of style. The sobriety of the lines of its furniture and the uncluttered and clean aspect of the spaces decorated with this look makes it very desirable for almost any apartment piece. These characteristics make it perfect for a dining room in a few meters. See how nice and wide it looks!
In a small dining room, the most important thing is to optimize the space to the maximum and, if you decide to install a bench, you will see how you get it immediately. The good thing about benches is that they take up much less space than chairs and you can also “squeeze” several diners with a single resource.
Sometimes we insist on putting up furniture and decorations that we like, but that doesn’t really serve any purpose, and that’s fine! As long as we have room for the really necessary elements. Therefore, when decorating a small dining room, the most important thing is that everything has a utility, that is, that the design is always accompanied by practicality. For example, if you do not have space to install a bumper, you prefer a cart that does the functions when you have a meal, but that you can remove later. This is where multifunctional furniture best accompanies us.
If you are an observer, you have already noticed that light colours help make spaces look wider. They take up little visual space, are light and also help to make environments look cleaner, sharper and clearer. That is why for a small dining room it is always advisable to avoid dark tones, although if you want to use them you can do it in small details and simple decorations.
In decoration, natural light is a highly valued element. It is true that we cannot always take advantage of it, but when possible we have to make it a priority. In the case of a dining room, much more! If you have large windows, orient the table so that the views are appreciated, but avoid that the light hits directly on the surface at noon. If you want to install curtains, prefer ones that are not very opaque, so that the light enters diffused, but does not get lost.
There are no excuses to live without a dining room! You already have all the tools to make it look nice and cosy, so get to work!
