If space lacks keeps you from entertaining more often or halted friends and family to come and have a dinner, your dining room surely needs a little bit remodeling and re-layout. Even though the lacks of space can definitely limit the types of parties you host, it shouldn't impede you from inviting groups of friends over for a dinner party.
The key of layout a narrow dining room or a few hundred square feet you want to transform into a dining room, is choosing the right dining table. Here are five hacks to get a perfect dining table, even if your dining space is very small.
1) Round Table
A small and compact round table usually seats more people than a rectangular one, and it can fit into tight corners. It also makes movements easier compared to its square or rectangle counterparts. Choose a round table with simple design to keep your narrow dining room looks overburden.
2) Have a double-duty surface
With a double duty surface, you can fold two (or three) spaces into one — a bar countertop can easily serves as a dining table as well! Same thing with an island that will also make a dining table and bar counter.
3) Choose a folding dining table
A collapsible table that available in the market nowadays can be put away if they ever need more open floor space. You can unfold the table when in use, and fold it back when finished to provide extra space for other activities and movement. To save even more spaces, consider to have collapsible dining chairs. Your narrow dining room will thank you for that.
4) Mount your dining room table
If you have a narrow dining room or small space transformed into a dining area, try to use a mounted dining table, as they did in small apartments. You can actually mount a dining table that folds flat against the wall shelving when not in use. For more space-saving addition, consider to use folding dining chairs.
5) Expandable table could be a perfect choice
Yes they do! When you have an expandable table with leaves, it can seat fewer when you’re eating alone, but it can make room for more when you’re having a dinner party. A wooden expandable table will be perfect for a charming farmhouse or bohemian dining room.
