Updated on by
One surface, two spaces. At a time when the interiors are getting smaller and smaller, the living room and the dining room seem forced to coexist. If on one side the living room promotes tranquility, this is not the case with the dining area which seeks conviviality. So how can these two pieces with opposite uses be brought together? A partition that plays on transparency, neutral colors, well-thought-out accessories, and even compact furniture, Maison Créative has pinned 12 ideas on Pinterest to create an optimized dining room in a small room.
Modular furniture to create a small living room into a dining room
Never neglect traffic in a small living room! This is why it is necessary to reduce the number of pieces of furniture as much as possible, the dining room table can be used as an office as the living room tables can replace an overly large coffee table. Compact, on wheels or simply foldable, modular furniture is the first ally of small surfaces. Exit the XXL dining table, we choose a console with a flap that closes at the end of each meal. And to optimize the space as much as possible, we swap the large armchairs for stackable metal chairs.
A piece of furniture to separate the living room and the dining room
In order to delimit the living room space from the dining area, the most common solution remains the separation unit. Multifunction, it acts as storage and partition. Low sideboard, openwork bookcase, shelf on legs, the important thing is to turn to light models that let the light of the place circulate. The detail that changes everything? Opt for characterful supplies - vintage curves, a graphic cutout or an old patina - that will set the tone for the decor of the small living room.
Invest the walls and the height of the living room
When the floor space is scarce, why not invest the walls and the ceiling? The small parts can benefit from a dining area unexpected setting a single tablet between two windows. Two stools and cushions for comfort, and the dining area appears in the living room. The interiors with dizzying ceilings can even glean a few square centimeters on the height: thanks to a system of slides, the dining room table descends into the middle of the living room and disappears from the ceiling when the meal is finished. An inventive tip for an optimized small living room.
A homogeneous decor in the dining room
Small spaces also like marked atmospheres … On the condition of adopting a strict course of action! The living room and the dining room seek to merge: if the black and white look appeals to you, decline the palette of its two colors from the table to the sofa via the linen. And make a cross on the flashy shades that may break the harmony. A few indoor plants will then be enough to bring a note of freshness to your small living room.
Arrange a small lounge dining room in length
To reconcile living room and dining room in a small long room, we avoid aligning all the furniture against the walls. Installed at the back of the living room, the dining table can be spread out in width and create a real dining area. The lounge area must follow a millimeter organization. There is no question of making the space heavier with a coffee table, an openwork end of the sofa will bring a more airy touch to the atmosphere.

Accessorize to delimit the dining room
Say no to the partitions that darken the space, prefer to accessorize small areas. Decorative objects are an excellent technical - and economical - way of delimiting the living room and the dining room. Two mismatched rugs, a series of frames fixed to the wall, and a vintage floor lamp, the living room asserts its presence in the small living room. The dining area is therefore more discreet with a simple hanging lamp and a bouquet. Proof that a few accessories are enough to reinvent a short stay from head to toe.
