Have you embraced small space living or find yourself occupying a house or apartment with less than ideal square footage? A lot of the times it can be hard decorating a small apartment, but luckily it’s not impossible. Whether by design or necessity or these circumstances call for lots of planning and creative thinking. Today, let’s tackle the small dining area. In this post, we’re excited to be sharing tips and ideas for maximizing less than optimal dining spaces by using a small table–bistro, ice cream or breakfast table and chairs.
A chic eclectic breakfast/dining nook has been created with a clever built-in corner banquette, Tulip style table and modern wood chairs. A lovely gallery of vintage photos and prints above and a pretty pile of decorative pillows finish off this irresistible corner.
This narrow room is just wide enough to accommodate a tiny metal table and bent wood chairs. As long as there is room to pull out the chairs to sit down and get up with relative ease even a very narrow space will work. The large swing arm lamp, along with a single piece of art, draws the eye to the back wall and enlarges the space visually.
A square breakfast table pushed up against the window sill and backless stools work well in this small cornflower blue modern kitchen. Round backless stools that can be pushed under the table are the ideal choice for spaces where traffic flow could be a problem.
A tiny wood table set against the wall and a pair of chairs creates an intimate dining spot for two between this small living room and kitchen. A round, square or rectangular rug can be used to define even the smallest of dining areas.
In a narrow kitchen where cabinets and appliance line one wall, a small folding breakfast table and pair of Eiffel chairs are the ideal choice.
Ghost armchairs and a tiny backless stool keep this black pedestal table from feeling too heavy for this light-filled kitchen. See-through chairs barely take up any visual space at all so they can be a good solution in lots of small space situations. The french often favour transparent furniture due to its unique design, so you’ll see many a sedie trasparenti in their homes, and while they began as simply fashionable pieces, they have become a staple for anyone struggling to create the illusion of more space in their home.
An eye-catching wallpaper and a Prada Marfa sign create a visual distraction in this tiny dining room. Glam is the watchword here. We love this Mid-Century table with glass top.
What a clever use of space in small apartment! Glam chairs meet a sturdy wrought iron breakfast table in this small but elegant dining corner.
Small space living means being creative and sometimes moving the breakfast table outside. Here, that outdoor space is a miniscule balcony under a jaunty striped awing. It’s a charming little spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
