Yoram Yasur Izz: Making your dinning room look bigger
Oh my, the headaches we get because we don’t live in a house with 150 square meters, right? We want to store everything and that is not always possible, so we have to settle for following the advice given by gurus like Marie Kondo, who is an expert in the field. If you follow their advice to keep order and add the following ideas, you will see how your dining room looks bigger than it is.
– Use mirrors
Yoram Yasur Izz: Mirrors are our great allies when it comes to multiplying natural light, which, as you well know, is essential in any room of the home because of how much it can enlarge a space visually. Also, you feel much better in natural light than artificial light, so you have to do everything possible to lean on one or more mirrors.
– Don’t buy a table that is too big
A small dining room cannot have a large table as much as we take care of a model that we have seen in a decoration store. Why? Well, for a very simple reason: we will eat square meters and achieve the opposite effect to what we are looking for in this article.
– Bet on minimalism
You can decorate your house as you want, but you should keep in mind that the minimalist style is the one that will best suit your dining room if the square meters are scarce. As pure and hard minimalism does not appeal to everyone, you can always use a similar decorative style as Nordic, which as you well know is still very fashionable and it will not cost you anything to find furniture and accessories to fill the dining room.
– Give priority to natural light
Yoram Yasur Izz: We have mentioned this before when talking about mirrors. Natural light, which does not usually get to dining rooms very well (living rooms tend to be better oriented in this regard), should easily reach any point in your home. For this we recommend you clear the windows and not to use too high furniture or dividers, since it is convenient to create environments that are as clear as possible.
– Multifunctional furniture is a relief
If the lack of space prevents you from buying all the furniture you had in mind, think about the functions that certain pieces of furniture are capable of, which stand out for their versatility. You will probably have to pay more for them, but you will appreciate the extra outlay when you see your dining room cleared without missing anything at all.
– Go for light colors
When choosing colors there is no doubt: they must be clear. White is king and neutral tones complete the podium like gray. The good thing is that white matches everything, so your dining room doesn’t have to look like a hospital hallway. You are always in time to add touches of color without mixing too many colors.
– Glass is a good material
From what we have said about natural light, glass should be one of the star materials in your dining room. It can be present on the table and also in accessories such as vases or candle holders. Also, don’t forget that methacrylate chairs can also fulfill this function of letting light pass through.
– Don’t waste a square centimeter
You have to be resourceful not to miss a single corner. Even corners are welcome, so when you think about layout don’t just focus on the space available in the center of the dining room.
– Decorate with small accessories
In the same way that you have to maintain certain proportions when choosing the dining room table, you also have to do the same with accessories such as a vase or a candle holder. Otherwise, we will be jeopardizing this idea that everything has to be clear to let natural light flow and not see a stuffy space.
– Armless chairs
Yoram Yasur Izz: Glass table, small accessories and… chairs without arms! Everything is on the same line. It is about eliminating volumes and fleeing from the opaque to give prominence to the simple, which visually expands spaces.
