There are many people who either own or rent homes or apartments with small dining rooms. Small dining rooms offer a sense of coziness, especially when paired with the right 3 piece dining set, but there are many who want the overall look of their dining room to seem larger than reality. There are indeed ways to enhance that small dining room. Keep in mind that these little tricks can be applied to any room you want to look bigger.
The color scheme of a small room is of great importance. It is best if you avoid darker colors in these types of rooms. Pastels and neutrals as well as white are all colors that give the illusion of a larger room. Think of the ceiling and the floor as the 5th and 6th walls of a small room. Your flooring should also be light in color, a light bamboo floor is great as is light-colored carpeting. Again, utilize a light color for the ceiling, this will open up the space above. All of these light colors work in tandem to create a brighter and more appealing, open space.
Wall mirrors work wonders in giving the illusion of open space. They not only reflect light, but also reflect color. If you dare, use mirror tiles on one wall and the room will appear twice the size.
In terms of decoration, one large picture or print on a wall is far better than several small ones when creating a larger looking atmosphere.
