Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Ideas for a Small Dining Area
Create a homey and inviting space with these ideas
Filipinos love to eat and nothing beats enjoying good food in the company of family and friends. But how can you create a space that's perfect for hearty meals if you only have a limited floor space at home?
With a few adjustments and a couple of decorating tricks, you can create a chic dining area. Let these ideas guide and inspire you.
Create a functional dining area that can also serve as work or study space. Make the space seem bigger by adding a mirror that can cover a huge part of the wall. Choose a slim long table that somehow matches the length of the mirror. A slim table does not take up too much space and it can accommodate more people, too.

If you only have a corner to work with, you may set the table against the wall then add two chairs and a bench seat. Spruce up the wall with quirky and colorful plates that add character to the space. Use plate hooks or hangers (from hardware stores) to hang them.

To separate the dining area from the rest of the house, use bold hues for the columns and cabinets. A pretty rug can also do the trick! If you have a round dining table, you may anchor the whole set on the rug.
RL Tip: Depending on your kitchen's layout, you may turn a counter or kitchen island into a breakfast nook that can accommodate more people.

If your unit has a magnificent view of the outside, you may choose to place your dining set by the window. This allows you to maximize the natural light, while giving your space a cozy vibe. Complete the setup by adding potted plants or adding vases filled with fresh flowers.
