Maximising Space: Dining Tables That Make a Room Look Bigger

What dining table makes a room look bigger?

If you're working with limited space in your dining area, you're not alone. Many of us face the challenge of making a small room look and feel bigger. The good news is that with the right dining table, you can create the illusion of a more spacious dining room. In this post, we'll explore some dining table options and tips that can help make your room look larger and more inviting.

  1. Glass Dining Tables: A glass dining table is a fantastic choice for making a room look bigger. The transparent surface allows light to pass through, creating an open and airy feel. Paired with minimalist or slim-profile chairs, a glass table can make a significant impact in a small dining space. See our marbled glass dining tables.

  2. Round Tables: Round tables are not only trendy, but they can also help create the illusion of more space in your dining room. Their curved edges and lack of corners make them appear less bulky, allowing for smoother traffic flow and making the room feel more open. Opt for a table with a pedestal base to further enhance the spacious look. Shop our round dining tables

  3. Light-Coloured Tables: Light colours tend to make spaces feel larger, and the same goes for dining tables. Choose a table in a light wood finish, white, or another pale hue to create a brighter, more open atmosphere. You can also add a pop of colour with vibrant chairs or accessories to personalise your space.

  4. Extendable Tables: An extendable dining table is a versatile solution for small dining areas. Use it in its compact form for daily use, and simply extend it when you have guests. This way, you can enjoy the extra space when needed without sacrificing the room's overall sense of openness. See our extendable dining tables.

  5. Sleek and Minimalist Designs: Bulky furniture can make a room feel cramped, so opt for a dining table with a sleek and minimalist design. Look for tables with slim legs and clean lines to keep the visual weight low and create a more spacious feel.

  6. Mirror Accents: While not specifically a dining table feature, incorporating mirrors in your dining room can help make the space feel larger. A strategically placed mirror can reflect light and create the illusion of more depth. Consider hanging a large mirror on one of the walls or using mirrored furniture pieces, such as a sideboard, to enhance the effect.

  7. Vertical Lines: Vertical lines can give the impression of height and spaciousness in a room. Choose a dining table with vertical design elements, such as striped patterns or tall, slender legs, to create this effect.

Even in a small dining space, you can make a big impact with the right dining table. By choosing a table that fits your room's dimensions and using design elements that create the illusion of more space, you can enjoy a stylish and comfortable dining area.
