One of the biggest secrets of budget dining room design is to use what you already have! Begin your design project by thinking about what it is that you want from your space, and how your existing furniture differs from your design. If your existing furniture is still sturdy, there are lots you can do to improve or alter the aesthetic appeal. The solution could be as simple as a coat of paint in a fun new color, or replacing the top or your old table with a new one in a more contemporary shape. Buff out old scratches, and give aging wood a new coat of polyurethane or furniture wax.
Re-purpose your existing dining room furniture to give your space a whole new look without the hefty price tag. For instance, stack shelves or serving units to create height and drama, or replace traditional cabinet doors with antique shutters. Changing or rotating seat cushions, picture frames, and other small details can also help brighten up the space without requiring a major redesign.
Another way to maximize space in a small dining room is to use a table with table leaves. Because you obviously can remove those leaves on an everyday basis, the table can be smaller. Then when you have company or you have more family members at home, you can put the leaves in, and you have room for everyone at the table.
Did you know that certain colours affect people's moods and appetites? Studies show that certain colour palettes can either make people feel anxious and subconsciously want to leave a room, or the colours generate a relaxed feeling and make people want to linger in a room. If the dining room will be the place you want friends and family to hang out in for long periods of time, you'll want to choose the right colour scheme for the walls and furniture.
Don't be afraid to mix large with small in a dining room, such as a small table paired with a large mirror or some type of large server. It gives style to the room and also gives the sensation that the room is more spacious than it really is. It also adds a focal point to the room.
