Even if you live in a tiny apartment with limited space, you will undoubtedly want a dining table to gather around with family and friends for delicious meals. So what do you do when there’s no room, but you really want a place to sit down for meals? You get creative. There are small dining room design ideas that can give you just the answer you are looking for. There’s no reason to deprive your home of a comfortable setting for a warm meal or room for relaxing with a friend over a cup of coffee.
One idea is to use a round table rather than a rectangular design so that you can fit more people around a smaller table. For really tight spaces, let a bar counter-top in your kitchen double as a dining area, just pull up a few bar stools. You can also have folding tables that you only take out a few times a week for special meals, but they can be stored away when not needed. Card tables work especially well for this, just be sure you have lovely table linens to dress them up in elegant style. Another idea is to have a table top attached to a bookshelf. When you need a dining surface, just lift up the hinged tabletop and fold down the hidden table legs. This will give you an instant dining room. Keep the colors of your dining area light and bright and cut the clutter by keeping as much as possible stored out of sight. These tips will help your small dining room design feel much larger.
