Camouflaging a dining area can be helpful in small spaces. This white and cream set falls lightly into the fresh white room decor, whilst a bright orange accent chair and a blue kitchen take the limelight. | Visualizer: LT Studio.

Line it up. A rectangular dining table sandwiches neatly between the long back of a sofa and a one wall kitchen. A linear suspension light accentuates the straight aesthetic. | Visualizer: Tyoma Atsone.
Create continuous lines. This dining peninsula is part of a fluid kitchen countertop-meets-workspace design. The seamless flow makes several small zones into one cohesive piece. | Visualizer: Eugene Sarajevo.
Accessories make a small dining area feel more established. A floral centrepiece will make the area look more loved, whilst a large sputnik chandelier adds glamour. | Photographer: Alexander Angelovskiy.
Added features. This wrap around dining table is a great space saver, but there’s a danger that solutions like these can look a little sidelined in a room scheme. In this instance, a wine storage niche gives the side location added purpose and style. | Visualizer: Wertikal Constructions.
Cut corners. When situating a dining area in the centre of a small space, opt for a round dining table to make walking around it a whole lot smoother. Nobody wants to be bumping into sharp corners every day. | Visualizer: Respix Studio.
Borrow half of a space with a half height room divider. This low level wall keeps the dining room cosy from the home entryway without cutting off the visual flow or light. The wall also builds a solid spot to position an entryway bench. | Designer: The November Design.
You don’t have to get stuck on a classic dining room pendant light installation. An arc floor lamp provides a practical solution when wiring can’t be moved, or these swing arm wall lamps create a unique modern vibe. | Visualizer: VAE.
Reshuffle the layout to create new areas. This tiny studio shouldn’t be able to accommodate a formal dining area, however, by moving the sofa into the centre of the floor a whole new area opens up by the window. | Visualizer: Oleg Mints.
If room height doesn’t allow for a raised dining room floor, then consider differentiating your dining area with a defining ceiling treatment. This approach draws extra attention to a beautiful dining pendant light too. | Photographer: Sergey Melnikov.
Many small dining areas find their sensible place at the end of a kitchen run; it’s a good idea to go for the window end so that you can enjoy breakfast in the sun. Installing a radiator right below for the colder months will keep off the draught. | Visualizer: Studio Open.
You can give a kitchen dining area its own domain by installing a glass divider. Because the room separator is clear, it won’t truncate the space or hinder the transfer of natural light but it will build the feeling of an entirely individual space. | Visualizer: Innoi Design.
