If you have a small room and need to include the dining area, here we show you some alternatives to create and decorate it. Turn your shared space into a visually separate and unified atmosphere with decorative elements that add charm and harmony.
Choice of Dining Area:
Choose an area of the small living room for the dining room that includes a table according to the size of the space and the number of chairs that are used frequently. Here the dining area is located in front of the window and only occupies a small portion of the total space.
You can place the dining room in a corner of the space with a round table, in this way the corners of the walls are softened and we can achieve a more harmonious space. Smooth finishes with curved and linear details create a modern and unified effect.
Another option is to place the dining room next to the main sofa in the room, slightly towards the center of the whole environment. In this way, a free passage zone is left to one side. So that this room does not look so saturated, you can incorporate benches without backing.
When the room is long but very narrow, the most commonly used option is for both rooms to be located continuously, one after the other. Add colored wallpaper and soft shapes to add visual interest. Glass tables are a good option for small spaces since the space looks more open and spacious. Metallic materials such as the pendant lamp and furniture details reflect natural light and create a brighter space.
A practical solution, for more informal settings, are the folding tables. Today we find a variety of tables and chairs that can be assembled on the spot and take up space only when used.
Colors on the Walls:
The colors that the walls will take are important for the decoration of the whole environment. There are several options to give life to both spaces, one of them, the simplest, is to paint all the walls in light neutral tones. To give emphasis to the area of the room, do not forget to include a focal point or stand out from the center of the environment. Here the area that stands out is the living room area with a TV center with a wall structure and lower linear lighting.
Another alternative to add color to the walls is through an accent wall. In this small dining area, it stands out with the green wall and expands on the different decorative accessories in the living room and dining room.
Furniture and Divisions:
Furniture and room dividers add some privacy to the space but can also make it look smaller. So that these pieces of furniture do not absorb light and space, choose shelves or dividers that are open to both sides.
If you have an open kitchen, incorporate a kitchen bar between both environments and thus function as a small dining area.
To separate the two rooms, the use of pendant lamps in each area is very helpful. Using similar materials and colors can help integrate the whole environment. While two different shapes of lamps help to differentiate them.
For a subtle and uncluttered approach. Choose one area to include a pendant lamp, while the other room, simple ceilings or spotlights.
Rugs are also very useful: it separates and unifies. To do this, you need to use the same colors and patterns that coordinate with each other.
Indoor plants not only refresh our room, but they can also be of great help to separate environments as we see in this design.
To maintain balance and coordination in the total decoration of the social area, it is important to take into account that the furniture combines in terms of colors and materials.
Repeat favorite textures to unify spaces, for example on the carpet, decorative pillows, lamps, blankets, among others.
These were some ideas to incorporate and decorate a small dining room in the living room, we hope they have inspired you!
