Positioned at 45° to the walls, instead of parallel, the square tables make the chairs more comfortable. Since the four sides are equal, calculate that the minimum space per diner is 70 cm (the proximity to the corners would cause annoying overlaps). To put 8 people at the table, you need tops over 140 cm on each side.

Once the proportions are clear, it will be necessary to decide which colours and materials to focus on. Light and neutral colours, combined with light style furniture are perfect for a small room, because they extend the optical effect; for large rooms, dark or bright colours can also be used. Lighting is another element to consider when furnishing a dining room. Using natural light is always the best idea, but to make it uniform throughout the area it is also advisable to use directional spotlights, LEDs or free-standing lamps.
