The lighter the wood, the less space it seems to take up, although obviously this is only an illusion. You need to leave at least 4 feet space between each side of the dining table and the walls or other furniture, and also a minimum of 24 inches between chairs. That should be enough information to enable you to work out the size of table you can fit in and how many people you can seat. Don't try to get away with less space, or your guests will feel squashed and uncomfortable.
If your space is defined and separate from the other rooms in your house, you can still benefit from the use of area rugs. An area rug under a table gives an immediate sense of polish and flair in your dining room. Using a colored rug will brighten your room immediately. A dark, patterned or bamboo rug will give your room gravity and center. If you do not wish to have a rug under your table, consider placing a rug runner along one wall of the room, or between different entrances to the space. Moving the table out of the center of the room and allowing a rug to take up some of the extra floor space will immediately change the feel of the room's structure. Utilizing runners can direct traffic flow or showcase a china cabinet or other focal point in your dining room.
The first trick of the trade is to realize that a small space can look larger than it really is by painting the walls a darker color and leaving the ceiling white, wallpapering with stripes or adding a large mirror to the wall. If you can't paint or poke holes in the wall, then think about how you can make the dining room table and chairs different.
Start with the chairs. In smaller spaces you want the chairs to be armless. If you are still shopping for a dining room table and chairs, consider picking chairs that have openings or a lighter profile. This can even include transparent chairs of acrylics or perhaps a chair with an open back as opposed to a solid one. This extra air can help make the space look much larger since there are no unnecessary visual barriers in the room. A chair with a more slender profile may also help.
Dining room chairs are usually offered as matching options to the table you choose. Most people buy no more than two chairs with arms that are usually placed on opposite ends. Side seating is usually provided by either a bench or individual chairs without arms, which allow that extra placement adjustment space when crowded.
