A welcoming and tastefully arranged dining room will always improve meals. However, if you include space restrictions in the dining room design process, you’ll have an additional obstacle to overcome. But don’t be alarmed! To help you figure out how to make the most of your own, we have a tonne of examples of small dining rooms as well as a tonne of design and practical suggestions to go along with each one.
1. Blend It Into The Kitchen
A bench can seat more than chairs could in a limited space. Even better if the bench is built into the island, serving as a natural transition into a more formal dinning space right off the kitchen. Add a bench to the opposite side of the island to double the room’s use case and blend the more practical kitchen with the formal gathering area.
2. Turn Storage Into Decor
Open shelves should be used for storage in a tight space, but you have to fill them wisely so it could look stylish.
3. Pair a Round Table With a Banquette
2 chairs & a corner banquette is a classic combination for a reason: it’s a highly efficient use of space. They transform a bare corner into an elegant eating space, but it can also be a great backdrop for meetings and work.
4. Choose Shelves Over a Cabinet
Cabinets do store a lot however, their bulk can dominate a room and use space inefficiently. Floating shelves or custom built-ins can be customized to fit your needs and offer more flexible storage. They’re especially a great addition to a room with high ceilings.
5. Sneak In Under-Seat Storage
The built-in banquette is also a sneaky storage solution. Hidden drawers beneath the cushion can house things such as napkins, placemats etc. You could paint the exterior of the drawers to match the cabinetry in the adjacent kitchen for a seamless look.
