Space has always been a problem to any homeowner in terms of their rooms. The problem does not only lies on bedrooms, bathrooms, or kitchens, but also on dining rooms. Dining room is a place where you won’t only be eating, but also be chatting with your family, spending time together. And in terms of togetherness, you might want a big space to have it, or at least an essentially small place that looks big.
Although space can definitely limit the types of parties you host, it should not keep you from inviting smaller groups of friends over for a dinner party. Here are five ways to make room for a dining room furniture, even if you live in a few hundred square feet.
First things first. About the table. Now, try a round table. A compact round table usually seats more people than a rectangular one. And not only that, it can also fit into tight corners. If you have a kitchen that has no walls separating it with dining room, the round table can be really useful for you.
Even, if possible, you can use a folding table. You know, a collapsible table can be put away if you ever need more open floor space. If there is a folding round table, it is the best choice for you, definitely.
You can also try this. Mount your dining room table. Let’s call it a murphy table, it will fold flat against the wall shelving when not in use, this is different with the folding table, cause a murphy table can also double as some sort of door of your cabinet or closet, while the folding table can only function as a table and then that’s it.
Next, you can try and make a surface do double duty. Fold two (or three) spaces into one. A bar countertop can easily double as a dining table. But do not forget to create a wide enough countertop in order to help your all of your family fit around it.
The last thing about tables; choose an expandable table. You can have an expandable table, with leaves, that can seat fewer when you are eating alone, but make room for more when you are having company.
As for the chairs, the best choice for you is a folding chair. If possible, look for a folding chair that can function as a table when being folded.
Extra tip for today; Try a higher, round table in a living room seating area with armchairs, instead of a low coffee table. Then the space can be conversation or dining.
