Another core aspect of making your dining room look sizeable is the color palette. If you always believed that you were supposed to keep your spacially challenged rooms white, then here is some wonderful news for you. If you don't want drab paint that is boring, think about having a monochromatic interior design in a muted color, or combine different colors which all produce the same intensity. For a scheme that is more colorful consider blues and greens that all have an equal intensity or if you prefer a soothing ambiance think about a monochromatic color scheme of pale blues. To add drama and depth, work on painting one wall a deep, intense tone - this gives it the impression of being further away along with adding an unusual charm. Pale colors will recede, therefore making the room seem larger and blueish gray is a great decorative paint color for a small room. But then if that sounds too colorless, don't despair cool colors like blues, greens and purples also recede so you can use your beautiful shades without making the room appear small sized.
Traditionally, dining room sets were composed of a large rectangular table surrounded by chairs. The two chairs at either head had arms, while the chairs along the sides were armless. The furniture is almost always made of wood, and prior to the 19th century, unique to each home. While custom pieces are still available today, they can be prohibitively expensive. Here is a look at some of the more common styles of tables and chairs that are available today.
Accessories. You can breathe new life into a dull boring dining area by adding modern dining room furniture to the room. The openness of the furniture and the simplicity of its design mandates that the room be free of clutter. A modern style dining area is a place of elegance where you, your family and guests gather to enjoy delicious meals and engage in lively conversation. Many dining rooms tend to send a person into sensory overload with all of the decorative items placed around the room and with the over abundance of items hanging on the wall. Once you decide that modern furniture is to be the focal point of your dining area, you don't need to add a lot of accessories to the room or to the wall. One or two large and simplistically impressive pieces of art on the wall is sufficient for a modern style dining room. If you have a few collectibles that you wish to include in the dining area decor, a modern style curio would be the most appropriate way to display them.
