Let’s face it, when you’re living in an apartment, it can be hard to create the room you need for entertaining — especially if you’re not a master at Feng Shui. But before you start looking for bigger digs (did I just say that?), let’s look at 6 easy ways to carve out a dining area in a small space.
01. Utilize an Empty Corner of Your Living Room
If you have an empty living room corner that you don’t know what to do with, try setting your dining area there with a round dining table and a few dining chairs, depending on what your space allows. Finish off the look with some decor accessories and an eye-catching lighting fixture.
02. Dress It Up With Textiles
To add layers to your dining area, why not dress it up with cozy textiles? Not only will your guests love it, you will also feel more at home with these elements. It adds an extra ounce of style while keeping the dining area functional and fun!
03. Rearrange Furniture
Take a look at your home’s space and strategically evaluate if you can rearrange some furntiure to find the perfect spot to add a dining area. We’re sure you’ll find that by doing this, you will discover space you didn’t know you have. A small dining table with 2-4 dining chairs is more than enough and could easily be spiced up with a house plant or an accent chair.
04. Add Tons of Décor
Bring your dining room nook to life with plenty of décor elements. Bet on a stunning lighting piece, an ornate mirror, a gallery wall, vases or even plants. Make it feel your own with little elements that will reflect your style and personality.
05. Paint an Arch
Liz Malm decided to bring an interesting element in her dining area by painting an arch next to her dining table. Not only does it add a touch of personality and artistic charm, it creates a dividing section for the dining area, just as it was done by positioning the sofa to divide the room.
06. Try a Bistro Table
If you have an unused kitchen corner, why not make the most of it with a bistro table, a dining bench and some dining chairs? You will be able to maxime space by the wall with a bench, providing storage and another seating at the table for guests. Make it more chic with decorative pillows, flowers and even art on the wall.
