In every home, there are generally three major communal rooms in which people spend the majority of their time. The room where the cooking is done, the room where reading and entertainment is common, and the room where meals are eaten all see their fair share of use. Just as kitchen and dining room furniture has evolved to meet the needs of modern families, so too have dining room sets.
Softly Modern. If you want to spice up your dining area with modern style furniture but want a softer look than some styles provide, there are several ways to satisfy your desire. You could choose an oval glass tabletop for a softer focal point. Modern chairs with a curved design would also help you achieve the design you are striving for. You could place a beautiful rug in a cinnamon, nutmeg, or paprika color under the glass table to add visual warmth to the room.
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.
