If you hardly have any space for a dining room, fear not, these small dining rooms will inspire you!
Sometimes it’s hard to know how to decorate a small space, especially if you’re not sure how to make the most of it. Today, we’re showing you the best small dining rooms that will never go out of style so you can get inspired to redecorate your own and create your own dining space for the entire family!
A bench sitting around the wall is the perfect way to add more places to sit, when you have a small space that can’t have a lot of dining chairs. If you have limited square footage, a round table is the best as well, so make sure to make the most of your space this way.
Sometimes the best way to make the most of a small space is to work a neutral and minimal color palette. Bright whites and natural light are your best friends. Make it light and airy so you won’t notice the lack of space.
With the right color combo and a built-in dining nook, you can setup your own dining space and make it feel refreshing and airy. A pop of color goes a long way so make sure to take a note of the trendiest and cutest ideas.
Just because you’re working with a small space, doesn’t mean you need to give up on accessories, wall art, cute lighting fixtures, nature elements, and so on, to make the room feel more personal and unique.
A round table can take you a long way, just partner it with a rug and some geometric metallic dining chairs (or even transparent ones!) to give the illusion of more space. Don’t forget the little decor accents such as greenery and patterns on walls, art and so on.
This tiny kitchen and dining nook are the proof that even the smallest of spaces doesn’t have to lack style. An upholstered bench seating, a small round dining table and you’ve got yourself set, you just need to add some patterns or colors in the lighting or even a pillow or two.
Reflective surfaces are your best friends when it comes to small spaces. You can benefit a lot from a large wall mirror that seems to add more space to your small dining room. If you pair it with some mirrored lamps, you can totally turn your small dining room into a majestic space.
You don’t really need a big dining space to have your meals. Unused kitchen islands can be turned into a spot to dine, just add some cute bar stools and create that fake look of an actual dining table by using a different color or tile in the area you’ll be using for the dining space, just like the example above.
If you have a window and almost no space, you’ll want to place a small table in front of the window and make the most of that natural light. It’s a quick way to save space and you can scoot the table wherever once you need to entertain guests.
No window? No problem! You can mount a tiny table on an empty wall and create your own little dining nook. It barely takes any space and you can play around with the decor. Add some greenery, floating shelves, a little wall gallery, and you’re good to go!
When thinking of your dining room furniture, go for minimal stools without arms so it will save space, and, of course, a round dining table. Gold accents and a minimal design can really help you achieve the perfect small dining room look.
Sometimes a single detail can really set the entire dining room, such as a pendant lamp over your dining table. Doing so, it will create a separation from other areas, which is much needed if you’re lacking some square footage.
The best way to separate your small dining space from the other areas is to position your chairs and table on a rug. Dress up your table with some fresh flowers, a candle, maybe a small vase, and you’ll have the look you’re looking for!
As we said before, separation is key, so position the rug on your living room in a way that it leaves some negative space where you can place your small dining room corner. You really don’t need much!
If you’re working with a small home overall, then an open concept layout is your best friend. Create a cute nook while adding some storage by using shelves to separate the spaces.
A corner bench is definitely one of the best ways to make your own little dining space while saving space but providing a lot of seating. Just add a wooden round dining table, some wooden dining chairs too, and you’re good to go!
If you don’t have a corner, a single bench is fine and you can always bring color by adding some pillows to make it more interesting. It’s the perfect way to create your dining room without needing much space.
Make your own little bistro at home by working with an entire wall in a different color, and adding some small stools and a coffee table. It makes it feel modern and you can always create your own little Instagrammable moment in your own home.
