4 Ways to Create an Eating Space in a Small Home

dining-room-tables

Having a space in your home to enjoy your meals is important. If you happen to live in an apartment or small home, you may have resorted to solutions like TV trays or everyone eating in separate rooms. Eating separately from your family can get lonely, while TV trays in the living room can lead to crumbs and food on the sofa. There are more feasible options that will define an eating area for you and your family to enjoy.

1. Split the Living Room Space in Half

The living room is typically one of the larger spaces in the home. If you can live with a little less living room space, mapping off part of it for a dining area can work. You can review sites with dining room furniture to get an idea of what would fit in the space. Going with a smaller square table with four chairs might work for a smaller family. You can use a room divider or your couch to separate the two areas.

2. Eat-In Kitchen

If you have a large kitchen, you can create a designated area for meal time. Eat-in kitchens are nice additions to a property and can improve the function of your living space. A small foldable table or even a kitchen nook and small table would work well in the corner of your kitchen while still providing optimum space for preparing meals.

The Rinascente department store is a Milanese icon, and one of the city’s faces. Our brief for the renovation plan for Rinascente’s women swear floor was to incorporate elements that would give visitors a tangible sense of the city. Our first move was to install 17 large windows, reminiscent of those seen around Milan, to function as subtle space dividers. Inspired by the unexpected encounters with shop windows, courtyard gardens and public squares that come from wandering Milan’s back streets, we applied a film to the windows to make them opaque when viewed from an angle but transparent when viewed directly.

Stosa Kitchens presents Aleve Allegra, the uniqe design by Adriani & Rossi. It is a project that is part of the collection as an extension Allegra which is already characterized by the overall cleanliness of the different compositions due to the leaf with the inclusion of the groove handle that ensures linearity uncompromisingly.

Multipurpose Art Gallery / by atelier rzlbd

“We work the clay in the shape of a vase, for it is precisely where there is nothing that the effectiveness of the vase resides. We make openings for doors and windows to make a house, for it is precisely where there is nothing that the effectiveness of the house resides. Thus, we think that we benefit from things that are tangible, but it is precisely where we do not perceive anything that true effectiveness resides.” _Lao Tzu
