If you’ve ever struggled with a small dining space and not having enough elbow room at meal time, you’ll enjoy this collection of nine nooks that incorporate both beauty and functionality.
When you have a small dining area, a round table gives the illusion of more space. Play up the area with pretty slip covered chairs and a snazzy circular light fixture. Plenty of windows also creates the illusion of space so consider the possibility of adding a window or two if that’s an option.
An oval table creates the illusion of space, as well. The lack of square corners makes it easier to pull up an extra chair or two.
Consider using an extension table for a small dining space. You can accommodate more guests when needed, and then put the table back to normal size when not in use, thereby saving space during everyday living.
Banquettes are a great way to save space since they’re tucked into a corner of the room. They create a cozy, intimate feel.
Drop-leaf tables are another space saving feature in a small dining space. This nook also enjoys a colorful banquette with ample windows that open up the room.
Be a decorator who views the glass half full and have fun when decorating a small dining space. Here, a fun retro booth setting makes an unforgettable visual impact in the home.
Create a cozy dining space by placing a table where it’s normally not expected. A vintage table provides an warm and inviting place for morning coffee or late night dessert. And if the light fixture isn’t where you place the table, use a pendant light with a hook to place the light where you need it.
Look at your home through fresh eyes and you’re sure to find a place where you can create a cozy cove for intimate dining.
