Create the Ideal Dining Space in a Small Condo

June 3, 2020

If you live in a small condo in the city, then you likely experience the challenges that come with furnishing a small dining space. Several condos don’t come equipped with a room dedicated to dining, however, that doesn’t mean that you have to eat dinner on your sofa! Use the space you have to create a comfortable dining area by combining the right furniture and décor.

Here are some tips on how to furnish your condo dining space!

Compact Dining Chairs

Avoid purchasing bulky chairs and instead choose compact seating that only uses minimal space. Invest in a chair that can easily tuck under the table or stackable chairs that are pushed up against a wall and can double as a plant holder or bookshelf when unused.

Try not to overestimate how much room you have to place your chairs. Take the proper measurements to ensure that your chairs aren’t too large.

Art and Décor as Separators

With an open-concept condo that only has one large living space, you have to find a way to separate the living room and the dining room. Typically, this is done using different pieces of art or décor. Some steps you can take include:

  • Placing art on the wall around the dining table
  • Placing a rug under the table
  • Hang a mirror on the nearest wall
  • Utilize floating shelves and wall shelves
  • Placing foliage around the table

Nooks, Windows and Corners

Following traditional designs when furnishing a small space can be challenging. Traditional design typically tells homeowners to refrain from blocking the windows to avoid a crammed appearance in the space. However, since you already own a small condo, that rule and many others are no longer considered.

Treat your windows and glass doors like any other corner of the room. Place a table, stools or chairs up against the window or nearby your door. A popular option for seating in a small condo is the L-shaped bench. These save space and make the room flow when against floor to ceiling windows and in nooks.

Tables

Small dining tables are often the go-to for furnishing a condo. However, some condos are too small to even include a small dining table. Homeowners with this challenge should consider investing in a bar table. Bar tables are typically thin and narrow pieces that only require a few bar stools, which will nestle conveniently under the table when not in use.
