Dining rooms are often the heart of the home and serve as more than a space to serve food. The dining room is a multi-purpose room, and should therefore have multifunctional seating which is beautiful and comfortable. Small dining room designs can still serve several purposes for the family including a place to complete homework assignments, conduct home business and even as a work table for creative projects. The secret of making a tiny dining room work is to choose furniture that is durable, attractive and can serve dual purposes. You want your dining room to be a fun place for the family to gather, not a cluttered mess.
Small dining room designs should consider the primary purpose of the room which is to provide a nice setting for enjoying a family meal, but the other activities the room will be used for also need to be considered. Dining furniture that will be getting a lot of use on a daily basis needs to be durable, easy to maintain and attractive. You also need to choose a style and color that harmonizes with the overall decor of the dining area and kitchen. You can also include storage in the dining room such as a chest of drawers for storage or even an antique pie safe for keeping clutter out of sight. Another great way to perk up a small dining space is with a lovely pendant light at a good height above the dining table.
