If you have not already figured it out by now, let us reveal the one big trick in decorating small dining areas: USE A ROUND TABLE. While this looks like an ultra-simple solution, it is also the best one. Circular or oval tables work well with corners, look graceful in the center of the room, allow you to accommodate more people and bring geometric variation to a room dominated by straight lines. We promise you that you will have no trouble with the curve! That is why you see so many homeowners opting for the classic Saarinen Tulip Dining Table. The sleek base is an added bonus…
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:
