While storage area is key, you don't want bulky pieces of furniture disrupting the movement of the area so try going for wall-hung shelving. It's an chance to show off collectables, fine china and antique pieces, that will give the room a bit of character. If you're eating area is in an open-plan space, an area divider by means of a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf will help create a sense of initmacy while also providing an area to decoratively display books and things.
Get a single-colour decorating system in a tiny dining room. Within this space, the same pale grey tone has been used on walls, fireplace, desk and chairs so that the backdrop seems to recede, making the area feel bigger than it truly is. Pick one component of the room and use it to create a contrast shade here it's lilac draperies that provide the interest. The tabletop has been left plain in keeping with the floor, while seat masks introduce some pattern.
Polyester is a similar option but stronger than lacquer. However, if you anticipate touch ups or changes, this may not be the finish for you. The polyester end you choose is going to be clear or just a little tinted and it may not completely change the look of your cabinets.
If your table is at your kitchen your decorating options will be limited, so make your table special with fabric instead. Co-ordinate a peek across tablecloths and napkins, blinds, aprons and even oven gloves to turn the table in to the centrepiece of the area. Here the soft autumnal hues of the towel and cushion features have a genuine decorative effect on the space all together.
Even studio room flats can have a dining table and chairs. Look for ultra slimline dining tables (that one even has a storage drawer) and second-hand recliners that you can customise. These old chapel chair are wonderfully distinctive and filled with identity. Whitewashed and cured to touches of lilac, red and gold they create a pleasant mix of old and new when teamed with the stripped backside table.
