Work in a stylish bank of built-in cabinetry. Bespoke cupboards can be slotted neatly into alcoves and are ideal for display or storage. Remember symmetry is always pleasing so try to achieve a balanced look. If your space is verging on the small side, consider fitting unusual doors with mirrored insets or updating existing ones. Mirrors can have an enormous visual impact on a space.
For a more interesting and unusual style of dining furniture, rustic bench seating should absolutely be considered, as it offers a beautifully unique aesthetic. Easy to combine with regular chairs, for a little diversity, bench seats are ideal for busy family homes, where the evening meal is considered to be a cherished moment of reflection and interaction. Children always enjoy a more fun style of furniture and with a bench seat, there's always room for one more guest.
Design a dining scheme around your storage requirements. Take advantage of all the space available with floor-to-ceiling shelving. Fit shelves into unused alcoves and use for books and decorative pieces so you won’t need to provide floorstanding shelves or cupboards. Paint your shelves in a different colour to your walls to provide a neat contrast.
Small dining rooms are often nooks carved out of larger spaces. Unify the dining area with the surrounding spaces by employing similar design characteristics throughout. Use armless and backless benches that can be easily tucked beneath a table when not in use. Don’t let a small table stop you from hosting a big meal – extendable versions are a great solution that offer flexibility for every dining situation and save on valuable floor space when not in use.
