The square dining table. Not as popular as the rectangular or round dining table, the square dining table has its pros and cons. If your space is small and you plan dinners for only four to six people, it is a lovely intimate design.
If your gatherings are more casual, why not make a pool table the focal point of your space? To prevent your dining room from looking like the local billiards hall, upgrade to a nicer table and toss a great area rug underneath.
Choosing something that looks great may be nice, but if it is too small or uncomfortable your family is going to hate it. Choosing a set that fits with your home design is a plus when it come to the look of the room. A rustic pine set would look good in an old world style home. If you have a more modern home you could go with something a little trendier.The shape of your table is also a concern. Round tables may look good, but if you have a small room it may not be practical. The next step is deciding what type of finish you want on your new dining set. Choose a chair style. Is it going to have a cushion or a high back? Maybe you would like the head of the table to have a chair with arm rests.You may even like a bench. The choices are endless so be creative and choose something you would like. Even if you have a small dining room there are options. A small table against a wall is great for couples who dont need more than a couple chairs. Finding these sets is quite easy with a simple online search or by visiting your local furniture store. As with any purchase looking for quality is important. You want something that is made of a solid construction to with stand the test of a high use space like your dining room.Are you looking for decorating tips for your small dining room? You have come to the right place! A small dining room can look cozy while at the same time provide a place to enjoy a nice meal with friends or family. It can even be used on a daily basis to make mealtime with your immediate family a special time. These home decorating ideas will make your small dining room unique and interesting. A good place to begin is with paint color. You may want to use a monochromatic paint color. So if you are using, for instance, the color tan, you would have two or three shades of tan that would go together and look very nice. If you want a little more color, you can combine different colors, but just make sure they are the same intensity. For even more color, use blues and greens of equal intensity. They have a soothing effect, and you can get away with using a little more color by using blues and greens even in a small room. If you want a very soothing color in a small dining room, use pale blue. This is a color that you can live with for a long time, and I really dont think you will get tired of it. If you would like to add drama and depth to a small dining room, paint one wall in a deeper, intense color. It may only be one or two shades darker than what you have on the other walls, but it really helps to add some depth to the room and makes decorating the room that much easier.
A dining room rug should have at least 24 inches of extra room on all sides of the dining table to allow enough space for guests to pull out chairs without tripping over the rug. An even wider border is ideal. To be sure you are getting the correct size rug, measure your dining table, add 24 inches or more on each side and mark the area directly on the floor with painter’s tape. If the marked areas falls well inside your other dining room furniture buffet, bar cart, consider sizing up.
If you can, leave 48 inches between the table and the entrance into the room. Having an arched entrance like the one in this picture stops the awkward bunching of people at your door when you announce that dinner is served.
