How you style your dining room will impact on how small or large this space appears. Many new homes and apartments are limited on space and have small dining spaces or kitchen/diners.
Here’s some brief tips on the best use of teak furniture for a small dining area or kitchen diner.
Teak furniture is an ideal option for a small dining space especially if you choose light teak tables and chairs – rather than furniture in a darker shade – as this opens up the area and gives the illusion the space is larger than it really is.
Depending on your style of dining room, another top tip for a smaller eating area is to choose delicate tables and chairs, rather than heavier furniture pieces as this again makes a room appear larger. Examples of delicate teak dining furniture are the Mandela Cross Dining Table, the Mandela Round Dining Table and the Mino Natural Dining Table – both the rectangular and the square versions. You can see examples of these on the main pages of our website.
Square and round dining tables are popular for smaller spaces as they can be pushed against a wall when not in use to free up extra floor space. Another option for a small space is an extending dining table, such as the Mino Natural Extending Dining Table. This style of table takes up less room but can accommodate more diners as and when needed.
For a co-ordinated look to your dining room, always make sure your chairs match the table – in colour and style. Low backed chairs, benches and stools are all good choices for a small dining room.
