Home is where the heart is, so design freely and get creative. Whether you live in a small apartment, or would just like a spare room for something else; modern living preaches all about sustainability. So don’t worry if you can’t make space for a grand dining area, it doesn’t mean you have to do it completely without it. After all, a dining space is a necessity for the heart. And there are many ways you can still design an attractive dining space, or even create a versatile home that isn’t just limited to your dining table.
Seinfeld did it, so can you. Don’t have an extra room? Use one that’s already allotted for something else. Whether it’s your living room, or a balcony or even your kitchen, you can incorporate your dining room into the corner or near the window and as you’d like. You can use a cabinet to build a partition, maybe add a large and vibrant rug, get some artwork near the dining table and you’re good to go.
Can’t Go Wider? Go Taller
If you do not have a wide space available to fit in your dining room, you can always make the room look taller giving it a capacious look. For instance, chandeliers or bright lighting right above your table, or a table with taller legs. Go for neutral colors, and make sure your artwork and furniture supports your design. And remember, appropriate lighting can make all the needed difference.
A Dining Table That Helps Your Case
There are many modern dining table designs that can support your smaller dining area idea. There are foldable dining tables that you can keep aside, once you finish dining. There are extendable dining tables that you can use to feed two people as well as six. People also opt for rounder dining tables with limited space, as it takes up less space. Moreover you can go for the cute café outlook with small and round dining table sets.
Décor That Tricks the Eye
Vibrant flooring, or exaggerated artwork can always be used to create the illusion of a larger and attractive dining space. Similarly there are many ways to attain that. For instance some suggest opting for monochrome or neutral colors. Some advice using a space with bright sunlight or heavy lighting at all times. Look up innovative ideas and get decorating!
Keeping it Light and Clutter Free
Don’t go for heavy décor or furniture as you’d only end up with a crowded small space which allows little mobility. The more minimal design you set up, the more spacious it’ll look and also keep it accessible. You can also add plants, lamps and any light minimal décor but the key is to not go overboard.
And if you can end up finding multi-purpose furniture, even better. Or you can always transform your kitchen island into a dining area. Hope these tips help you out in designing your perfect dining space.
