When space is tight, opt for extra comfort with a banquette. Blend it into the rest of the room by choosing furniture and colours that chime with the surrounding décor. Not only do banquettes offer a more casual, laid-back style of dining, but they’re also a great space-saver, requiring less room than chairs and offering valuable storage under the seats. Re-create the laid-back vibe with heaps of cushions and accessories, all tailored to fit your scheme.
If your small dining area is tucked away in a corner, give it an instant update with a theme. Include flourishes of colour in accessories, soft furnishings and wall art to give the space its own character. Set against a white backdrop, a chestnut table brings a traditional, homely touch to the corner. Incorporate a bench, which can be neatly tucked underneath when not in use. It is also a great option for when you need to seat more than two people.
When there's barely enough room for even a very small dining table, a breakfast bar can be a more practical dining furniture option, which is why we are including bar stools in this guide. Chic, fun and a little less formal than regular 'sit down' chairs, stools put the glamour back into mealtimes and simply tuck away, under the counter, when not in use. They really are ideal for modest homes where every spare inch of space counts.
Few of us have the luxury of a separate dining room these days, but however limited space might be it’s important to incorporate storage into your scheme wherever you can. Build a low-level, storage bench – it may take up a little floor space, but it will declutter and streamline your space while providing extra seating should you require it. If you can, have it made to match the rest of your furniture for a scheme that is cohesive and considered. Using low-level storage will also free up wall space – display a collection of framed prints that will add character and interest.
