Even studio flats can have a table and chairs. Search for ultra slimline dining tables (this one even has a safe-keeping drawer) and second-hand chairs that you can customise. These old chapel recliners are wonderfully distinctive and packed with persona. Whitewashed and cared for to details of lilac, red and gold they create a lovely mix of old and new when teamed with the stripped backside table.
Consider a cup fronted case, second-hand ones can be upcycled with paint or wallpaper, it'll provide a self-contained place for products but can look damn cool into the bargain. If you are really trapped for storage space, a good idea is to 'look high and low'. A high-level shelf playing around a wall structure or two is incredibly handy for storing and displaying jugs, silverware and the like. Reduce, benches which double as storage or low-level built-in cupboards along a wall membrane which can be used as seating, are a good guess.
You can afford to be always a bit more daring in a dining room, so liven it up with some vivid patterned or brightly coloured fabric, be it reupholsterig your dinner seat, adding some luxurious curtains or a straightforward patterned tablecloth. Try coordinating it with accessories in an accent shade to complete the look.
As a cheap and quick way to update kitchen cabinets, polyester and lacquer surface finishes are a great choice. Lacquer has various options in coatings such as matte to glossy. This is best applied with a sprayer to ensure coverage of the complete cabinet. However, it takes more maintenance than other cabinet finishes. If you're worried about the wear of this finish, you may want to consider other long lasting options.
instead of chairs using one aspect of your stand eliminates the space you'll typically need to back up in a couch, freeing up more room to route traffic. Plus, it certainly is nice to have extra seating readily available, even though space is small.
