Shaynna shares her tips for making the most of your dining area.
Dining areas are more than just a table and chairs - they're the star of the show when it comes to entertaining.
Here are some tips to make the most of your dining space:
The most common table size is 1800mm X 800mm (180cm x 80cm), and fits six chairs. While some prefer a larger table for celebrations, it's often better to save on space - especially if you are limited in that department.
- Long tables can help lengthen a room, and work best if you're dealing with a narrow space.
- Round tables offer flexibility, as you can add more chairs when necessary. They're particularly useful in small, boxy rooms. They're also great for entertaining because they're more social.
Glass tops help increase feelings of space and light. Metal legs achieve a similar effect and help set a modern theme.
If you're dealing with a large area, a wooden table will help anchor the space.
