A dining room can be a tough place to organise. Often located in the living room, kitchen or hall (when not in separate room altogether), the incorporation of a dining room can lead to a room being cramped and the design heavily mixed up. If you don’t have a dedicated dining room in your home, you should choose your eating location well: making sure you have room to get about when it’s not in use and that you are comfortable when sitting at the table. If your table must fit into a cramped area then consider a lightweight option to push it out of the way when it’s not in use. Otherwise consider the chairs you select carefully; making sure they will tuck snugly under the table and not occupy much extra space. On the other hand, if you do have the space, then you needn't worry!

Kitchen space

If your house doesn't have space for an additional dining room, then this example is a considerable option: an extended kitchen work surface makes up the table and, subsequently, seating area. Made with a natural finish and placed well into this whole theme of bare wood surfaces, this design could be a welcome and spatially practical element to the whole layout of your kitchen.

Small dining rooms

A square, lacquered iron table in the corner of this room gives way to this eating area, designed by  Studio Vade SC. The chairs contrast well with the table, using a velvet lining, to provide quite an elegant touch. A vase of flowers and a large mirror complete the room's composition—all centring around this great chandelier. A fine example of how to use light manipulation techniques to give your space a much bigger appearance. 

Minimalist dining room

Lover of clean design and simplicity? This room is perfect for you!  Susanna Cots Interior Design offers us this room dominated by simple straight lines and white. An open kitchen where the kitchen table is responsible for conceptually closing the gap. Four designer, Eames, chairs and a black chandelier completes this minimalist dining room.

Dining room lighting

A retro design that lovers of the casual style can admire, from Meritxell Ribé. The striking lighting fixture is somewhat reminiscent of Yoko Ono’s ‘Wish Tree’: offering a place to put individual notes, or wishes, in for all to see. A fun installation that could provide a home with countless memories.
