If you have a mini dining room if you want it to grow if you want to make the most of it if you want it to be more comfortable or functional… Here are 10 dining rooms with practical tips. And if you don’t have it, you will.
1. A SMALL DINING ROOM WITH AN “L” BENCH
To optimize the space of this dining room to the maximum, the architect Ana Blanco designed an “L” -shaped bench that enables more seating positions and, at the same time, occupies less than a few chairs, which has allowed the living room to be given a few cm more.
2. A VERY WELL DRESSED SMALL DINING ROOM
The decorator Begoña Susaeta turned this small dining room into a jewel. Not just because of the light and views he enjoys, but because he dressed it to get the most out of it. The walls were covered with a very personal Bilbao blue paper, which we also find in the motifs of the upholstered chairs. A round table visually lightens the space, complete with a cupboard that serves as a pantry.
3. TWO BETTER THAN ONE
Even in less than two meters. The perspective allows us to see how we can fit a small dining room, as in American cafeterias, facing two benches. To be comfortable, the table has to overlap a bit on the bench (think about how you bring the chair closer to sit at the table…), but we also have to leave enough space to ‘get in’ easily. Have you noticed that Also, one of the benches is a bottle rack? And that the other continues to the fireplace?
4. SMALL AND VERY CAPABLE
Although small, this dining room, designed by the decorator Mireia Torroella, is capable of accommodating many guests when needed. The key is its bench attached to the wall, which gives more seats. And, to protect the wall from friction and, at the same time, to make it more pleasant to the touch than plasterboard, the decorator has covered it with lacquered wood.
5. SMALL AND CONNECTED TO THE KITCHEN
This dining room, integrated into the day area, is small but comfortable for four people. And, in the case of needing to expand the capacity, simply place the table in the center of the room and enable more seating positions. Although separated by the kitchen by a window, visual contact between the two spaces is maintained.
6. A MINI DINING ROOM ATTACHED TO THE KITCHEN ISLAND
This dining room is small but very practical, because the table, being an extension of the island’s worktop, serves as an extra work surface.
7. A DINING ROOM INTEGRATED INTO THE KITCHEN
The decorator opted to unify the dining room and the kitchen, to enjoy a larger space. For the dining room, he chose a large rectangular table that he placed against the wall to allow a more comfortable passage. It serves not only as a dining table but also as a study and as an extra work surface.
8. SMALL AND WITH EVERYTHING AT HAND
This dining room is tiny but super comfortable. Integrated into the kitchen, the routes are reduced and it has also been completed with an area of shelves and drawers to keep the utensils closer to hand.
9. VERY NATURAL AND SOLVED WITH A LOT OF INGENUITY
This dining room is tiny but it doesn’t seem like it, being integrated into an open space shared with the living room and enjoying a wide exit to the terrace. Besides, so that the stair did not eat up too much space, the decorator Sònia Badia devised a bench that transforms into a step.
10. WITH THE BASIC PARTS
If your dining room is small, don’t overload it with too many or too heavy pieces. Here we have opted for a visually light, light wooden table and for a bookcase as decorative as it is capable.
