The dining room is not just a simple dining area, it also fulfills an important social function at home. It is a central meeting place for the family, where one can spend time together in peace and exchange ideas. The latest furnishing trends often include an open plan living space where the dining room, kitchen and living room form a harmonious unit, which in turn provides more living comfort and ample space. But even with smaller apartments, you can set up a pleasant and cozy dining area, where you can feel completely comfortable. Of course, above all, your own taste and personal preferences play the most important role. Nevertheless, you should already follow some tips and tricks that are very helpful in setting up small rooms. In this way, each room can be transformed with little effort into a bright, spacious room. How does that work? Very easily. Here is some advice for you.
Color design of small rooms
Basically, the rule of thumb always applies – bright and neutral colors visually expand the small space and make it look more generous. Of course, you can also opt for white walls or put on a harmonious color duo such as white-gray or turquoise cream. If you like bright colors, you can add some fresh splashes of color to the dining room furniture through cushions, cushions, window decorations or table runners. Such accents usually attract attention, and so the room suddenly looks much bigger.
Matching furniture and plenty of storage space
Even with the furniture in the small dining room, you should opt for lighter shades. A dining table with chairs or even with benches made of light solid wood is definitely a good choice. You can of course choose a folding furniture variant, which provides extra freedom of movement. Natural wood nuances and white are also suitable for the sideboard or dresser in the dining room, which also provides additional storage space and storage space.
Daylight and artificial lighting
Ensure pleasant lighting conditions in the dining room. Thanks to transparent curtains and subtle door curtains not only enough daylight flows into the room, but also annoying mosquitoes and flies are held. When it comes to artificial lighting, so-called “islands of light” are a great idea. So the room not only looks wider, but also much more comfortable. A stylish pendant light above the dining table provides additional light while eating and ensures a cozy ambience in the evening. The important thing is that you should match the size and design of the lamp as well as possible to that of the dining table.
In the end, do not forget the wall mirrors! These true “illusionists” are known to reflect the light and conjure visual space and new perspectives in space. Large mirrors can be fixed to the wall as if they were a door, which acts as an open living plan. Smaller wall mirrors, on the other hand, can be placed strategically in the desired places. So you can deliberately expand and brighten the room to your heart’s content.
Free yourself and dare! Have fun thinking and setting up!
