Thinking about where you place the furniture in the room is an additional tip for decorating a small dining room. Even your dining room might add to your well being when designed with Feng Shui in mind. Easy access into a room will make it seem more spacious so place your furniture away from the doors. If you can steer the eye from the open door to a bigger piece like a server or mirror can help divert the eye and give the illusion of space.
Another core aspect of making your dining room look sizeable is the color palette. If you always believed that you were supposed to keep your spacially challenged rooms white then here is some wonderful news for you. If you don't want drab paint that is boring think about having a monochromatic interior design in a muted color or combine different colors which all produce the same intensity. For a scheme that is more colorful consider blues and greens that all have an equal intensity or if you prefer a soothing ambiance think about a monochromatic color scheme of pale blues. To add drama and depth work on painting one wall a deep intense tone - this gives it the impression of being further away along with adding an unusual charm. Pale colors will recede therefore making the room seem larger and blueish gray is a great decorative paint color for a small room. But then if that sounds too colorless don't despair cool colors like blues greens and purples also recede so you can use your beautiful shades without making the room appear small sized.
Second-Hand. If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
