Compact living is on the rise. First-time buyers are finding that their best option to get on the property ladder is an apartment or newbuild, which, let’s face it, aren’t quite as sizable as the dream Victorian Townhouse.
Fear not! Although your current dwellings may be on the smaller side, that doesn’t mean your space will feel cluttered or crowded. Our Stylist has some tips and tricks on creating the illusion of space and some great cosy dining sets for you.
How to Create Space
First things first. Before you start shopping for a compact and cost dining set, you need to know what you’re looking for. There are a few features to look out for when browsing dining tables and chairs for small spaces. These are;
- Glass Dining Tables – Choosing a glass dining table is the simplest way to create the illusion of space. As the table top is clear, you’ll be able to see through it as though it’s not even there. Therefore meaning your space will remain uncluttered while allowing light to flood through the room.
- Stackable Dining Chairs – These are a must-have for compact living. Stackable dining chairs give you the freedom and flexibility to add a couple extra seats when you entertain. And when not in use, stack and store them away. As our Stackable Dining Chairs have a small footprint, this means they will take up much less space than classic dining chairs when stored.
- Round Tables – Another great option for small spaces is a round dining table. The curves will create the illusion of space while fitting into the smallest of corners. Whats more, as the tables have no corners, you can position anywhere in your dining area to make a real focal point.
- High Gloss Dining Tables – As with Glass dining Tables, a High Gloss Dining Table will also create space by bouncing light around the room. The trickiest part of compact homes is large furniture blocking the light. Use reflective surfaces and glass, and you can create a bight and airy home.
- Chrome Finishes – Combine chrome finishes with Gloss and Glass to further the reflective properties of these cosy dining sets. The Naro is a great option as the minimal Chrome pedestal base teamed with the round glass top gives all the style without compromising on space.
