Choose a table with narrow dimensions and a glass top so that it can be squeezed into small areas and at the same time light and discreet. You can supplement with a blanket under the table to further define the area as a dining room. The spacious window area in the kitchen below is ideal for accommodating a compact dining area with custom seating and a small kitchen table. Folding table is a must in tiny homes. This small case acts as a compact side table during the day, but can be knocked out to a cozy dining table at the evening meal.
A narrow table can also fit nicely into a bay window, or you can use a folding table if the space is extra cramped. A simple built-in bench in the entire window length will optimize the space even more. The seats here also offer smart storage underneath.
A dining area does not necessarily have to be in the kitchen. You can use a bay window in a sunny living room to house a relaxed dining area, which can easily be transformed into a guest arrangement when there are visits. A corner sofa with fixed cushions works well as part of a dining room. A small round table and a pair of fine chairs fit perfectly into the L-shape and transform the area into a cozy dining corner.
