Dining area in a small apartment: 8 useful ideas

The tiny kitchen has barely enough room fornecessary equipment, and the modest living room area does not allow you to place a full-fledged dining room in it? In this article, we tell you where and how to equip a dining area even in the smallest apartment Few can afford to allocate a separate room for a dining room in an apartment, but sometimes it is impossible to find a place even for an ordinary dining group. And what, in this case, to do: abandon the necessary equipment, cut the working area and deprive the kitchen of functionality in favor of a single dining table? Of course not. We know at least 8 ways to organize a small but comfortable apartment even in the smallest apartment - and not only in the kitchen. Small table and chairs If 2-3 live in the apartmentperson, and the size of the kitchen allows you to allocate a couple of free square meters, you can organize a completely traditional dining area with a table and chairs. In order not to clutter up an already small space, choose compact furniture, ideally light in color or transparent, without massive details that attract too much attention. Transformer furniture Transformers - perfectan option for studio apartments and those cases when there is very little space in the kitchen and the dining area needs to be moved to another room. The modern market offers a wide variety of variations: from simple folding mechanisms to complex multi-level systems. For a living room, models are best suited in which a coffee table turns into a dining table and vice versa. Kira Shelmanova, designer:- If this is a one-room studio apartment, then the breakfast or light snack area can be organized in the kitchen furniture system itself as a small bar counter. A full-fledged eating area can be convenient in front of the sofa in the living room area, if you put a transforming table there, which, if necessary, turns from a magazine into a dining table. Chairs can be folding and hide somewhere, or they can participate in the general interior, playing the role of small chairs standing on the sides of the coffee table. During the organization of a full-fledged dining area, armchairs are attached to the sofa and table, and the coffee table becomes serving. www.shelmanova.ru Corner table with a sofa Corner sofas are not uncommon for small kitchens in Soviet-built houses. Indeed, on both sides of such a sofa several people will be able to accommodate at once, and if you substitute a couple more chairs to the table, then there will be enough space for the whole family. It is better to choose a dining table round or oval, so that those leaving the table do not hit the corners, and a glass tabletop will additionally visually relieve the space. Shelf table For young couples and those who live inthere is only one apartment, the option of a table-shelf mounted in the wall is suitable: narrow and compact, it practically does not take up space. Due to its small size, it is intended mainly for breakfasts and quick snacks, so lovers of home meals in the company at such a table will still feel cramped. If you want to have a dining area in a small kitchen and the ability to organize a full dinner with friends at home, you can combine the option with a shelf table and, for example, a transformer in the living room.

Choose a durable worktop that is easy to maintain, comfortable chairs and the ideal dynamic dining area. And in a studio apartment, the bar counter can also act as a zoning tool, separating the kitchen from the rest of the space. Folding table The folding table is suitable for those whoto whom mobility is important in the interior: it is easy to assemble and remove the chairs to free up space in the kitchen or living room. Also, when folded, such a table does not interfere with cooking or cleaning, and inside (if we are talking about a model built into the wall), you can install narrow ones and get an additional storage system. Part of a kitchen island Kitchen island is a dreamany hostess, but in conditions of limited footage, it is almost always abandoned, including in favor of a dining group, which has nowhere else to accommodate. If your kitchen is not entirely tiny and you really want to have at least a small island for cooking, you can solve the problem by combining two in one: choose an island model with a retractable or folding tabletop. A table by the window And, finally, an option for those who lookfrom the window, if not inspiring, then at least not depressing. At first glance, an ordinary window sill does not play any role in organizing the space, but if you remove it, continue to the countertop or turn it into a small bench, you will be able to place the dining group by the window even in the smallest kitchen. Anna Abakumova, designer:- A comfortable and functional version of a small dining area - a mini-sofa in place of the window sill. Additional storage space can be organized under it: the main thing is to take into account that heating systems are often installed under the windowsill. If technical feasibility allows, you can take the radiator aside or close this place with a special screen. www.abakumova-interiors.com The interior of Anna Abakumova
