A dining room, where family members gather to start and end the day, is suitable for a minimalist design as it can bring about comfort for the whole family.

People who apply a minimalist style are usually those with limited space at home. As a solution, choose a minimalist-shape dining table that suits the size of the room and the number of family members. Don’t pick one that is too big since it would make the dining room appear smaller. You can use a round dining table to reduce the spatial use and allow a more intimate interaction among family members.

The Number of Chairs

A minimalist dining room doesn’t need a lot of chairs. It would be sufficient to place the same number of chairs as the total number of your family members. If you would like to host an event at home with several guests, you can combine the dining room and the kitchen or with the other rooms.

Lighting and Air Circulation

Good lighting and air circulation are two points that have to be included in a minimalist room concept. Simple and bright-coloured wall and floor, adequate lighting, especially the natural one, can accentuate a bright ambience that’s identical with a minimalist design. In addition to that, air circulation, either natural or artificial, is equally important so that the dining room stays comfortable while being used.

The Right Kitchen Design

To maximize the design of a minimalist dining room even more, you can apply a combination concept of kitchen/dining room. Besides saving more space, the movement between the kitchen and the dining room would also be more efficient. If you have made the decision to use this concept, then opt for the right and flexible design for your kitchen, for instance, by also using your countertop as a dining area.

The Colour of the Room

A minimalist dining room doesn’t require many colours. Its simple concept makes it easier to design. You can apply white as the main colour on the wall. Then, you can add another supplementary colour through the furniture. This colour element allows a minimalist dining room to look more appealing.
