Stylish Dining Room Decor Ideas for Small Spaces
Whether you live in the city or simply don’t have a lot of dining room space to work with, it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to decorating a small dining room. While the long-standing tradition of formal dining rooms may be a thing of the past, dining rooms are still a necessary and important room in any home. Thankfully, there are a ton of clever things you can do in order to make the most out of this space and turn your dining room into a strong focal point. Believe it or not, transforming a tiny dining room into a purposeful and stylish space isn’t as hard as you may think! Below you will find a handful of tricks and tips that will help you make the room look larger in the blink of an eye. Depending on where the dining room is located in your home, turning the space into a functional one may help the free-flow traffic of your house overall. For many, the dining room is an oftentimes forgotten and neglected area of the house. However, with a little TLC and ambition, you will be able to turn these tiny quarters into one of your favorite rooms in the house.
In addition to making some simple stylistic changes, you may also want to consider a new dining room set when trying to make the most out of this tiny space. These days, there are tons of great – and affordable – options out there when it comes to a dining room table and chairs. One of the biggest mistakes people make when decorating their dining room is not getting the right furniture.

Below you will find a few handy tips to help you make the most of your small dining room, and don’t forget to head on down to Furniture Nation to see what we have to make the rest come together.
Tip #1: Use neutral colors. One of the best ways to make a dining room – or any room, for that matter – appear larger is to integrate neutral colors. Neutral colors, such as beiges and off-whites, used in conjunction with a mix of textures will give your tiny dining room a warm, cozy feel that will immediately draw people in.
Tip #2: Consider a two-tone design. Another clever way to dress up a small dining room is by creating a two-tone design. One way to do this is to create an interesting wall treatment (think wainscoting or board and batten) then use a color within the same family on the dining room chair cushions, for example. By using a light and dark shade within the same color family, you will immediately establish dimension and depth, creating an illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is.
Tip #3: Use deep colors. Color is so versatile and a wonderful to create a particular feeling or sense in a room. In many cases, small dining rooms are simply nooks carved out of larger spaces. One option is to bring the dining room and its surrounding spaces together by bringing in deep colors in contrast to more neutral tones. Think plum or deep blue accents against white or black furniture, for example.
Tip #4: Create a feeling of warmth. One of the easiest ways to do this is with the dining room table. Many small dining rooms feature bay windows or benches, which help the room appear a tad bit larger and also offer seating. By integrating a table – such as one that is oval-shaped – you will be filling out the space nicely without disrupting the flow of the space.
We hope the above tips give you a good place to start when it comes to making the most out of a small dining room area. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our dining room offerings, please do not hesitate to come visit our Dallas contemporary furniture store.
