Thinking about where you place the furniture in the room is an additional tip for decorating a small dining room. Even your dining room might add to your well being when designed with Feng Shui in mind. Easy access into a room will make it seem more spacious, so place your furniture away from the doors. If you can, steer the eye from the open door to a bigger piece like a server or mirror can help divert the eye and give the illusion of space.
Size Choices. The size of dining room furniture is one of the most important details to consider. Two factors will affect the size you choose: the size of the room and the number of people you wish to accommodate at the table. The first consideration will be the dimensions of the room because this will determine the size of the furniture. The shape of the room is another consideration because narrow dimensions may present a challenge for some sets. Select furniture that allows at least 36 inches between the outer edges and the walls. For even more comfort, allow between 42 and 28 inches between the furniture and walls. Every person sitting around the surface should have at least 24 inches of space for comfort. If you really want everyone to feel at ease, give everyone 30 inches of dining space. People will appreciate an extra 12 inches at the corners of rectangular tables.
Dining Room Tables. Most modern dining area tables are made of glass. They may have some wood incorporated into their design or possibly be a combination of glass and chrome. Tables designs vary from the traditional four legs as support to an artistically designed pedestal base. The glass tabletop plays a large role in helping the room appear more visually spacious, regardless of its actual size. These tables are grand in design. They provide a superbly impressive place for you to seat your guest.
