Size does matter, but at the very same time it is a very relative term. We say this after looking at many apartments and interiors that are dubbed as ‘small’, yet are sufficiently large enough in our humble opinion. In simpler terms, what might be a small dining room for you might be something that works perfectly well for others. Never design a dining area by simply borrowing the blueprint from a friend’s home. If you are a young couple that eats out most days and rarely entertains guests, you do not need a large Thanksgiving-styled table. A small table for two will do just fine most of the time. Why do you need a huge table that takes up space when all you bring home is takeout?
We start by reinforcing a favorite decorating mantra: there is power in numbers. In fact, we recently made this point in our Decoist article on displaying collections with style. Below we see a group of vases atop the Draught Dining Table from CB2:
All of these tables are all incredible, but what if you don’t want an all-wood table? Our next table, featured on Osbourne Wood Products, might be made of pine, but it features a magnificent tile center that steals the show and all of the attention! How lovely are those tiles?! Just think of all of the possibilities for tiling your own custom dining table!
Borrowing from breakfast nooks is not a bad idea when you are trying to come up with a small dining room in a home that is struggling with foot room. In fact, we suggest you incorporate some of the features of a banquette booth and a lovely breakfast nook into your dining room design. Make full use of the corner space on offer. This could be a little corner in the living room or in the kitchen. By turning it into seating space, you have half the problem solved. All you need now is an appropriate table and a few chairs for the opposite side. You can even add a few storage shelves and cabinets to the wall to provide additional storage and display room.
