Nanette Delannoy. Dining room. June 01st , 2017.
Borrowing from breakfast nooks is not a bad idea when you are trying to come up with a small dining room in a home that is struggling with foot room. In fact, we suggest you incorporate some of the features of a banquette booth and a lovely breakfast nook into your dining room design. Make full use of the corner space on offer. This could be a little corner in the living room or in the kitchen. By turning it into seating space, you have half the problem solved. All you need now is an appropriate table and a few chairs for the opposite side. You can even add a few storage shelves and cabinets to the wall to provide additional storage and display room.
You can convert pretty much any corner of your home into a compact dining area. From the space next to the kitchen island to the small corridor that leads to the bedroom; all you need is the right table! There are plenty of Murphy tables that can be easily folded away flat against the wall when not in use. Some others can double as a sleek workstation. With chairs being easy to relocate, you can easily create a dining room that vanishes away when not in use!
As a DIY fanatic, I always love seeing projects that utilize the existing space very well. Have a small kitchen island and only a small amount of space to work with? Try extending your kitchen island by attaching some plywood or lumber, adding legs, and painting it a fun color like this DIY project, originally from Mixr.se and featured on Trendir. I love that they also painted the side of the island’s countertop to seamlessly tie everything together!
The best part of these DIY dining table projects is that you could mix and match ideas for your space (i.e. loving the base from one table but using the tabletop idea from another!). All of these eye-catching tables make me want to go upgrade our kitchen table immediately!
