Dining Room / June 9, 2018 / Gaetane Noemi.
Look to abstract modernism when designing a dining room – its linear furniture and sharp, clean lines are perfect for a compact space. Incorporate a countertop that is almost shelf-like in its appearance, while bar stools with slim, spindle legs are a great choice for minimal and compact schemes. Continue the less-is-more approach on the walls and flooring.
Gather round for an informal meal at a canteen-style dining table, seated in comfort at a cushioned painted bench. Fabrics patterned with colourful garden seed packets brighten the scene. Create a country ambiance with flagstone flooring and brick walls, adding a hint of industrial edge with factory-style pendant lights. On the table, stick to a green theme with a shapely kettle, jug and water bottle.
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.
Choose a round pedestal table and armless dining chairs to visually enhance a space. Keep the focus off your diminutive quarters and draw attention to unique details in a small dining room. Use a sugary palette of pale pastels to keep the subtle colour even across a compact room. Make your dining area the star of the show by painting a circular design on the wall to define a zone.
