Less is more, when we want to achieve elegance in dining room design. The accepted rule for small dining room decoration is to de-clutter the space and organize items to reduce visual noise. Once done, add simple pieces of art and sculpture to elevate dining room walls and other spaces in the dining room. For stylish dining room wall decoration, many prefer muted colors. Go for wooden and sturdy dining tables and fabric upholstered chairs for a cosy dining experience. Accessorize with candles, runners, elegant crockery and cutlery. Do not overdo and overwhelm the area if you want to achieve an understated look

3. For an expensive look

If you are looking for small dining room decorating ideas, you will have to focus on the right technique. With proper designing, dining rooms can look a million dollars, whilst being pocket friendly to you. Add some glass pieces to visually expand the area. It could be a glass panel on the wall, a glass top dining table of good quality. Glass is an inexpensive way of making a space look larger and one’s taste look refined. But be warned of the maintenance demand of this material. Regular upkeep becomes important. Elegant chandeliers right above the centre of the dining table in warm yellow lights will help you achieve your desired result as well. Pair this with warm scents of vanilla candles and the space will look and feel nothing less than a fine dining restaurant
