Whether you live alone, as a couple, or with a bigger family, valuing and preserving the time you spend dining together with the people you share your home with or with visiting friends and family can be a key aspect of your home life.
Living in a smaller home with no allocated dining space, or a home where dining space is given but limited, you need to be especially considerate of your dining room space and plan carefully to ensure you can fit in the table and enough comfortable seating for your requirements.
You needn’t sacrifice your dining space, you just need to plan meticulously and make sure you have exact measurements of your room and space before you purchase that extravagant table and chair set! Take a look at these examples of small dining room tables which prove that a lack of space doesn’t mean you have to give up your style or your entertaining dining experience:
5. Pop Out Table
Save even more space without sacrificing style by adding a table to your kitchen wall. Make it into a café-style dining space by adding seating right up to the wall.
7. Kitchen Diner
If you don’t have your own dining room but if you’d like the separate space, you can allow yourself part of your larger kitchen space to add a long dining table to encourage informal and open family living.
8. Two Seater Table
A round table with two seats will take up less space than with four seats. If you share a home with just one other, make your dining time more intimate with a smaller table that pulls you closer together.
10. Kitchen Island Alternative
If you do have the luxury of a larger kitchen, sacrifice your kitchen island with a smaller table that seats four. Even if you have a separate dining room, this can add an element of more informal and flexible dining and living to your home.
Dining together is a valuable time for families and friends and not something we should ever feel like sacrificing due to a lack of space. Sure, we might be more comfortable and a little bit physically closer, but with planning and thinking ahead, we can create great dining environments in any home.
