Small dining rooms don’t have to feel cramped or uncomfortable! It’s all about knowing how to use them right…
If you are working with a tight dining room space, here are some tips to help you out:
- Choose chairs without arms — While it’s always awesome to have chairs with an armrest (it makes you feel like you’re a king on a throne), armrests will make it harder to slip in and out of the chairs. For your small dining room, it’s always better to choose chairs without armrests. The smaller, slimmer, and more compact your dining room chairs, the better!
- Avoid heavy curtains –– If you have a single window opening up on your small dining room, the last thing you need is heavy curtains. They’ll make the room look more cramped and stuffy than it already is. Instead, use glass curtains or very light window treatments, and let the natural sunlight in. It will give the room the appearance of more space, and will make for a very comfortable little nook.
- Move the dining room –– Just because a room is designed to be a dining room, that doesn’t mean you have to use it for that purpose. You can always move your dining room setup into another room, such as the space designed to be a living room. It’s a good idea if you and your family don’t spend a lot of time watching TV or playing video games, but you do spend more time eating. If family meals are the most important part of your day, the dining room should get priority over the couches and the entertainment unit.
Follow these tips, and you’ll find that small dining rooms can be comfortable no matter how compact they are!
