This kitchen space is not much wider than its window, but it's been maximised by adding built-in bench seating. Include storage space under benches which means you are not losing any space. Add chair pads and scatter cushions in a mix of coloured fabrics. Squash the largest desk possible between the two benches and make the area special by clinging an large pendant light above. A pleasant, cosy arrangement.
As the centrepiece of your dining area, it is important to get your dining room desk absolutely right. As mentioned, extendable dining tables are a good way of protecting against a stand from looking sparse when catering for smaller parties, and it can also provide more space for those days when you have to squeeze in a few extra people. If you're really short of space, you can even stow it away between foods.
If you're looking for a traditional look but want still want a ornamental aspect that pops, a lantern chandelier is a great choice.

In addition they come in various sizes, so a lantern chandelier could possibly be the perfect addition to a little dining room.
A sideboard is a great destination to store plates, cutlery and spectacles, in particular when they look as cool and unique as this one does. The stunning painting, quirky bulbs and an ornate candelabrum contrast with the white sideboard in this modern dining area.
Before you order up a dining area set with all the sides, it's important to consider the size and condition of your room and how you plan on using it. Will you generally be hosting a party of four for every day meals? Or, will larger meal celebrations be gathering there? Once you've solved these questions, the rest is as easy as pie!
