Don’t let a small dining room restrict you. Increase the space in a narrow dining room with a slimline table and wall-hung accessories. If you have a large family or a continuous stream of guests visiting then a small, circular table may not be an option for you. Instead, invest in a slender table that will fit neatly into a narrow space, such as a kitchen-diner, conservatory or even a hallway. Free up floor space with wall-hung lighting on pivots that can be positioned over your table to provide efficient task lighting. Wire it up to a dimmer switch for an ambient glow – ideal for intimate meals. Finally, punctuate the scheme with artwork and table decorations to add character and personality.
If you have the space, consider incorporatinga larder-style cupboard into your dining room scheme. Storage on this mighty scale means there shouldn’t be anything left cluttering up your dining room. Use a tonal colour palette that is in keeping with the rest of the scheme to provide balance. Alternatively, opt for a glass-fronted display unit. Use the visible shelves for decorative accessories and conceal practical pieces in the drawers below or elsewhere.
For a hardworking fix, consider freestanding furniture that can work in virtually any room. Standalone designs offer heaps of variety and choice when it comes to keeping an open-plan living space flexible. A wooden storage chest like the one shown here can be moved in, around and out when redecorating. Finish by styling the top with your favourite accessories, including vases and candle holders.
Factor in a standalone sideboard. Freestanding furniture can provide a more individual solution than costly bespoke built-in storage systems. A sideboard is a great place to store plates, cutlery and glasses out of sight, especially when it is as stylish as this one. If you’re on a tight budget, look out for a second-hand one you can paint or, if you aren’t, splurge on a standout design.
