In a smaller narrow dining room, a good option is definitely to choose a round table as it occupies less space. A benefit, despite being smaller, of having this type of dining table is that it allows more closeness and intimacy with friends, family or a partner; you’re not separated by the length of a rectangular table.
With a round table, or a rectangular one, as you will see below, chairs aren’t needed all around the table if there is a lack of space. Take advantage if you have a bench such as this one. This way, the area becomes more than a dining table; it can also be used for other activities such as reading a book, playing board games, and much more. And having windows, allows for an enjoyable view, whether dining is taking place or some other activity.
A beautiful dining room and a beautiful kitchen can easily be combined. No one demands that one must have a separate dining room. In fact, it can be even more enjoyable to have the kitchen two steps from the table as it’s more convenient when serving and cleaning up the table, and socializing can take place even if one person is cooking. Everybody is much closer to one another.
It’s intriguing, in restaurants, when there is a large window or opening to the kitchen where guests can observe the chef as the meal is being prepared. You get to follow the process. Do the same in your home. It makes it easy to serve and then to clear the dining table afterwards.
Select some taller bar chairs or stools if you turn your kitchen counter into a dining table. With a more casual eating environment like this, it gives you the extra space by not having an actual dining table.
Another example of placing the dining table and chairs inside the kitchen. Select a shorter dining table in length if necessary.
With a straight sofa back, a couch can be placed up against a wall and this could save you some space. Taking advantage of every meter and even centimeter can make a significant difference in smaller homes, and this way you can have sufficient space to have that fantasy dining room or have space for those extra pieces of furniture that you also want.
