If the dining space has a wall on side, the best way to use the space is to use benches that can easily accommodate three or more people. The same space may otherwise look small when you place two or three chairs. There are many options to add drawers and cabinets around benches in the dining area where you can practically store all kinds of crockery and serve ware.

If there is one place where you can spend on a small dining space, it is actually the lights you use. Pendant lights, mainly the ones that come in unique shapes and designs, can ensure that attention of the guests is diverted at the first look. There are many choices, which is much dependent on the style, material and brand you are looking for.

Getting attention for a small dining table gets easy when the chairs are designed in unique upholstery or there are colorful cushions all around. For benches and extended seats, cushions can add a lot of glamour and style without having spent a huge amount.

If you have a wall that doesn’t have window and is free for use, a painting in the dining room can create a lot of illusion. Paintings, either small or large, have a long lasting impact on the people in the room, at least for the time that they use in criticizing the house.
An expensive side table:

Just like the bed side-tables are meant for ensuring you can keep a few things, a side table for the dining table can be perfect to keep a few dishes or even a few cooked items. This works perfectly when the dining table or the seat is more inclined to the wall or is mounted.

While not many people think of tableware as a distraction, there are others who check the same when they are on the dining table. Rather than having too many things on the table, choose a few items on the expensive side. Guests will easily find new things more satisfying and wouldn’t have much thought on the small space.
