Are you looking for decorating tips for your small dining room? You have come to the right place! A small dining room can look cozy while at the same time provide a place to enjoy a nice meal with friends or family. It can even be used on a daily basis to make mealtime with your immediate family a special time. These home decorating ideas will make your small dining room unique and interesting. A good place to begin is with paint color. You may want to use a monochromatic paint color. So if you are using, for instance, the color tan, you would have two or three shades of tan that would go together and look very nice. If you want a little more color, you can combine different colors, but just make sure they are the same intensity. For even more color, use blues and greens of equal intensity. They have a soothing effect, and you can get away with using a little more color by using blues and greens even in a small room. If you want a very soothing color in a small dining room, use pale blue. This is a color that you can live with for a long time, and I really don't think you will get tired of it. If you would like to add drama and depth to a small dining room, paint one wall in a deeper, intense color. It may only be one or two shades darker than what you have on the other walls, but it really helps to add some depth to the room and makes decorating the room that much easier.
Another way to maximize space in a small dining room is to use a table with table leaves. Because you obviously can remove those leaves on an everyday basis, the table can be smaller. Then when you have company or you have more family members at home, you can put the leaves in, and you have room for everyone at the table. Also, a table with drop leaves is excellent to use in a small dining room because the leaves are right there and are not stored in a closet in another room. You can just put the drop leaf down when you want the table smaller and then put it up very easily when you want more places at the table. Don't be afraid to mix large with small in a dining room, such as a small table paired with a large mirror or some type of large server. It gives style to the room and also gives the sensation that the room is more spacious than it really is. It also adds a focal point to the room.
