Come Dine With Me

The reality of urban living for most of us means a lack of space… we struggle for every square foot we can utilise so need to be smart on maximising space and not getting over crowded. An ideal solution is to combine a dining space into your kitchen so you can avoid having to eat off your lap in the living room.

Here are a couple of tips we use on interior design projects as well as in our own homes…

Size matters – If you’re tight on space make sure you choose chairs that tuck neatly under the tabletop or even a bench which can be pushed against a wall. The Hay Copenhague Table comes in a narrower width at 75cm making it ideal for smaller spaces.

Atmosphere – no matter how small a nook you’re dining in, think about the lighting and general atmosphere to make sure it’s actually a nice place to enjoy a meal. Hanging a pendant light low over the table is a top tip.

Colour block – we tend to keep colour simple on the tabletop but you can be playful by mixing up chairs. Use a few old ones mixed with new to add character.
