Dining Set Ideas for Your Small Space
No one wants to share meals in a cramped space where your elbows bang into each other because of an ineffective furniture arrangement. Even when you want to fit everything into your small space, it's still crucial to find an arrangement that makes your whole family comfortable. It's a good thing there are lots of dining sets designed to fit and make the most of small spaces.
If you're planning to give your dining room a well-deserved upgrade, we've got you covered. Here are some dining set ideas to incorporate into your dining room when you are short on square footage.
Turn your small dining space into a more comfortable and functional area with these small space dining set solutions
Switch to a Round Dining Table
Looking for a more flexible area to add more seats? Try swapping your rectangular or square table with a round one to add more seats without the obstruction of table corners. Choose relatively slimmer dining chairs to fit more pieces into your compact area. This way, you can place extra chairs and still move comfortably without your chairs bumping into each other. When designing a compact space, focus on furniture with simple shapes and curves to not use more space than what you only need.
Open Kitchen Dining Set
Open-concept kitchens are pretty common in modern HDB and BTO designs. If you have an open-concept kitchen where your dining space is connected to other areas of your home, you can section your open-concept kitchen by creating a small dining spot. A dining set with benches presenting simple silhouettes will make a practical space-saving arrangement. A dining bench can give you a flexible seating solution that you can tuck under the table when not in use. This will provide you with ample traffic allowance, especially when you're preparing your meal on the kitchen side of the open-concept room.
Push Your Small Dining Set Against the Wall
If you don't have enough traffic space in your dining room, you can maximise your area by pushing your dining set against the wall. If you have a set with a combination of a dining bench and chairs, push the dining bench against the wall, as it is easier to sit on without the need to adjust all chairs individually when one needs to sit. The wall will also automatically serve as the backrest of your dining bench. For your dining chairs, choose compact pieces with slim legs to create the illusion of space.
Create a Dining Nook
A small dining nook is a quick and effective solution to make the most of a small space. Set up a small niche in your open-concept kitchen to turn it into a well-sectioned area. Add a modern touch to your dining nook by choosing lightweight dining chairs surrounding a space-saving table. You may select a compact bistro table that can fit small areas or an extendable one to give you more space to dine when in need. This is an excellent choice if you love to host gatherings. You can maximise your space during bigger meals and enjoy more space during more intimate dinners.
Choose a Statement Dining Table
Having a small space doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the look of your dining room to save space. If you have minimal square footage and can't fit extra accent or decorative elements, take the chance to use your table as the statement piece in your room. A pedestal table with generous detailing will take the spotlight in your area while giving you a great surface to dine and enjoy your moments with your family.
Modern Lightweight Dining Room Furniture
Whether you are dining for two or enjoying your meals with your loved ones, a modern dining set with a lightweight chair design and sleek table build will surely satisfy the needs of a compact area. A set with a clean top, an upholstered seat, and metal leg detailing makes for a simple yet appealing main attraction in a minimalist dining room.
Convertible Coffee Table
Coffee tables are usually low enough to complement a sofa's height, but some coffee tables can be transformed into a bigger piece where you don't only share snacks but also full meals. Some nesting coffee tables are also spacious enough to benefit a small dining nook you want to create in your kitchen or living room.
Counter Height Dining Set
Your small space doesn't have a statement piece to make it look comfortable. A slim counter-height table with dining stools can be a simple solution for a minimalist, modern dining area. The simple silhouette and warm tone of its wooden material can instantly make your kitchen look more spacious and homey. Forget bulky dining tables and chairs and welcome compact furniture solutions.
A Dining Set for Four
Make a simple mid-century modern dining space with a marble-top dining table matched with four upholstered dining chairs. The combination of white and wood colours makes a sleek centrepiece in a compact space. If it's hard to be generous in quantity due to your space restrictions, be generous in terms of your furniture’s quality!
Modern Extendable Dining Set
From a square table for two to a spacious four- to six-seater space, this extendable dining table presents a dark neutral tone and subtle visual textures that add depth and personality to any space. This metal detailing and dark upholstery combination will definitely go well with any theme and colour palette.
Sintered Stone Dining Furniture
One sophisticated and versatile material we recommend for your dining room furniture is sintered stone. Sintered stone is known for its beauty, scratch and acid resistance, and overall longevity. This sintered stone dining set offers a sleek tabletop, contemporary leg design, and effortless visual texture. Complete its modern look with equally sophisticated dining chairs made with high-quality upholstery. The set's unprecedented appeal will make an effortless statement in a small dining space with minimal furnishings and decorations.
Designing a small space can be a challenging and enjoyable experience. The key to an effective dining room setup is to choose the right furniture pieces that will support your needs and the availability of your dining space.
