Need help with my tiny dining room. This is a rental, so I can't do anything too drastic. Paint is a possibility, although not preferred since I'd have to paint the walls white again upon moving out.
The table is new and will stay. The chairs are temporary until I can afford nicer ones (would prefer sleek Parsons style upholstered chairs but open to suggestions!). I am not attached to the rug, so open to suggestions there as well. The calendar wall decal is already gone; I took it down after these pictures were taken.
I'd love to change the flush mount lighting fixture (not shown but is centered above table) to something more elegant, although again, would have to change back later, and put a large mirror or large aerial city print on the walls, but really just want this room to feel more spacious and comfortable. As you can see, it is adjacent to the tiny eyesore kitchen with no door.It also has an echo problem because of the high ceilings and small boxed in size.
I plan to stay in this apartment for at least 3 years, so am willing to invest a bit to make it feel more homey.
