3 Ideas for Small Dining Rooms

by Linda Almonte 06/15/2022

Dining room decor can make a significant difference in your experience of the space. Whether you have an open floor plan dining room extending into the general living space or a formal, secluded room, choosing how to decorate is important. As with any room in the home, it's difficult to work with an especially small space. If you have a small dining room, here are some ideas for how to make the most of your decor:

Round Tables & Banquets

One excellent formula for solving a lack of space in a tiny dining room is to combine unexpected furniture shapes. For example, banquet seating against the wall works perfectly with a small round table. Create a corner “booth” and even add a second or third chair on the outside if there is space. This idea is excellent for small spaces and works well in traditional layout homes where using every corner counts.

Built-In Shelving

If you’re trying to make the best use of space in a small dining room, consider built-in shelves rather than cabinets or other storage. While sideboards and dish cupboards have excellent charm and traditional functionality, they take up previous floor space and can make it harder to maneuver within the room. Instead of using that floor space with furniture, put up floating shelves to store and display your favorite dining room decor.

Benches

Bench seating is not just for outdoor picnic tables. In fact, you can solve a surprising amount of space issues by using a simple bench rather than individual chairs. No matter what sort of dining room layout you’re working with, using a bench on one or more sides of the table is an excellent way to make the most of the space. Even better, if the bench is long enough for multiple people, you still get the same amount of seating than you would with chairs but with less hassle.

These are just a few ways to handle decorating a small dining room. Keep these ideas in mind when working on your design and you’ll find the best potential use of space.
