Even in the open plan living the gallery wall gives the dining space in the corner a distinct identity and style of its own. Most importantly it brings warmth character and a ‘bit of you’!
Then there are occasions when the tiny dining area sits at the heart of it all and becomes the showstopper. Make sure though that the style of the dining area matches with that of the living space and dining next to it to create a more curated apartment.
But you have to be practical and get the best of both worlds and that is possible by using smart room dividers in an open plan living. Create the room-within-a-room even while allowing the space to flow into the next.
Do not shy away from using bold colors in the dining room along with your favorite shade of light blue or dashing gray. Yes the rectangle dining table is popular and one that is extendable offers even more functionality. But feng shui suggests using an oval dining table instead.
But being clear about this one common feature makes it a whole lot easier while thinking about what needs to go up on the gallery wall. Consider the style of the dining room and the existing colors in the space before you make these choices.
If you feel that the round table is not the one for you then you might want to give the oval dining table a shot as it moves away from the mundane even while saving space stylishly.
A window seat next to it all with built-in storage can make this tiny dining area even more efficient while a punch of bright color also seems apt in these light-filled areas.
There are plenty of times when we simply ignore the ceiling and accept it in just plain white. But just like those walls around you ceilings also offer an opportunity to ‘decorate up’ and give the room a visual upgrade.
