Dining Table Styles for Small Spaces

Published

on

Designing a dining room is hard enough, but when your space is on the smaller side it can add unneeded stress to the process. Luckily, we have compiled a list of tips, tricks and key points that will help you choose the perfect dining table style to match your compact space.

Here at 1825 Interiors we have a large collection of dining tables to suit your needs. Our tables coming in a range of different materials, shapes and sizes. You will be sure to find one that will fit perfectly, with the functionality and style to suit your needs.

 

Match the Table Size to the Dining Room Size

If your space is on the smaller size, choose a table that suits the scale. If you choose a dining table that is too large in comparison to the rest of the room, it can overwhelm the whole space.

Planning is key when it comes to furnishing any home, so don’t forget to measure. Remember to measure the table, walls and distances between other pieces of furniture. Leave enough space for chairs to pull out, as well as enough space to comfortably move around your table.

 

At 1825 Interiors, we’re here to help. If you’re lost on how to match your chairs and dining table, have no fear! We’ve done the hard work for you. We sell a range of table and chair packages, as well as individual dining tables. For extra small spaces, a bar table can be an easy way to save space. Put it against a wall to create an intimate area for two, or move the table to an open space, making room for four. Our Stonemill Half Bar Package comes with stonemill wooden stools and is the perfect addition to any dining room!

Think Minimalist

Minimalism is ideal for modest spaces. Clutter can close up a room and make it seem smaller. Try a narrow sofa or console table with drawers, and forget cumbersome buffets and shelving.

Our Florence 900 Dining Package with French Cross chairs is both simple in its design and colour. Light, neutral colour combinations and chic design makes the package an ideal piece for your minimalist style.

Try Industrial

Metal and wood are a given for any industrial theme, and its growing popularity will make your dining room appear at the peak of the current trends. The darker colour palette infused with shades of brown and grey will make your dining room appear smaller in comparison to the rest of the room. Be sure to fill the room with light colours, evening out the tones and creating more space.

 

1825 Interiors’ Oslo 1800 Dining Table is the perfect industrial-themed piece. Our Oslo collection melds farmhouse simplicity with mid-century modern style. Luxurious in its simplicity and inspired by nature.

Bring the beach into your home with a Hamptons-style dining table. The basic colour scheme of neutral, light colours and simple shapes will complement any small dining space. Replicate a chic, seaside retreat by bringing aged wood, white paint and effortless style into your space.

Be Comfy with Country

Country-style furniture is a great choice for a small room, as classic theme embodies cosiness and relaxation. Space cannot be wasted when it’s limited, so our pieces are designed with simplicity, creating a space that is both organised and highly functional.

 

The Tuscan 1400/1800 Small Extension Table is a much loved favourite in our country collection. Highly practical, the table can fold out to a larger version if you require more dining space, while folding back to fit comfortably in any small space.

5 Cool Window Covering Designs For Your Basement

Published

on

Are you planning on replacing the windows in your basement? It’s worth the hassle if you find a modern design you love, but it costs lots of money. You’ll need to find a way to improve the look of your room while you save up. 

Let’s discuss a few window covering designs that will help them look bigger and fancier. It should please whoever is sleeping in your basement at the moment. You’ll be able to recreate one of these ideas over the weekend. 

1. Add Trim To Your Windows 

If you browse the designs available at Canadian Choice Replacement Windows & Doors, you’ll notice everything looks good. Windows without trim look like little holes in the wall. It’s not something you’d find in a real bedroom.

You’ll discover lots of window molding options in your local Home Depot. Don’t worry about messing up when trying to attach the trim because it’s pretty cheap. Your basement windows will automatically look expensive. 

2. Make Windows Appear Bigger 

If you attach recycled shutters below your Peterborough windows, it will make them appear much bigger. Unless someone is looking at them closely, it will look like the shutters are covering the bottom half of your windows. 

You might need to add a little trim when working on this idea. If you use your imagination, I’m sure you’ll think of other ways to make it look like your windows run further down the wall. Sadly, it won’t let more light inside. 

3. Playing Tricks With Mirrors 

Mirrors will also trick people into thinking your windows are larger. It will only work if you hang them directly above your windows. You can use trim to make them look like they’re part of the overall design. 

Even though people won’t be able to see outside when looking at the windows, it will appear as if you can look through them, but you’ll only be looking at the basement. Rooms will look brighter because sunlight bounces off the glass.

4. Angle Windows For Extra Light 

You can angle the drywall so it comes down like a slope, which will allow more light into your basement. It will feel like the window is a lot bigger, but it will look a little unnatural compared to the windows upstairs. 

It’s maybe not the best idea if you plan on replacing your windows soon, as you’ll need to put a bit more work into it. Your drywall will need to be pulled down and replaced once the framing has been changed. 

5. Hang Long Drapes From Windows

Long drapes will make the windows appear taller, but they could make your basement look strange. You will need to find a way to cover the walls below your windows. We’ve already mentioned shutters, but there are easier ways.

You could put a desk under your window, which wouldn’t be a waste of space if the basement dweller used it for work. If you have beds on either side of the window, you can put a table and lamp underneath it.

 It’s Only A Temporary Solution 

These ideas are great if you want to improve the look of old and tired basement windows, but you should save for new windows as soon as possible.
