Creating a kitchen dining area in a small space can be quite the challenge. It is often difficult to find that extra added square footage you need when there doesn’t appear to be any around. You can incorporate neat tricks such as adding mirrors to give the illusion of space, but at the end of the day what’s needed is floor space. You have to have space for your table, your chairs and for human bodies to actually exist around the table. While this may be a challenging task, it is not an impossible one. There are ways to maximize every inch of your floor space to create the kitchen dining area you want.

They are so popular that many companies will offer to custom make a banquette to fit your space. Once they are installed, you’re able to tastefully decorate them to match the decor of your kitchen and create a comfortable space to enjoy your meals.
Space saving booths
This decorative technique is similar to banquettes. The only difference is the booths are not meant to fit the corner. There are two booths on opposite sides of the table that allow you to create an elegant and charming dining area for your kitchen space. The benches come in a variety of styles. Depending on the look of your kitchen, you’re able to create a bench that has a back or a bench that has no backing and fits underneath the table to create more room. You’re also able to buy benches that fit perfectly into your kitchen dining area to create the dining space you need. No matter how you choose to incorporate this design element into your kitchen, this is an excellent and charming way to create a kitchen dining area for you and your family.
The kitchen table as a centerpiece
If you have a kitchen that’s limited on space, placing your kitchen table in the center of your kitchen is an excellent way to create your dining area.

By placing the kitchen table and chairs on top of a beautiful natural fiber rug, you have successfully created a space anchored by a natural rug element. Keeping a fresh bowl of fruit or a beautiful arrangement of flowers centered on the table is an excellent way to keep the space beautifully decorated and allow the kitchen table to be its own decorative element.
Using built-in elements to create a kitchen design
You can create a kitchen dining area that slides from the wall. This unique design allows you to slide out the table and use it as your dining space. Once you’ve finished dining, you’re able to conveniently slide the table back into its original position. This is an excellent way to save on space and an awesome way to incorporate a kitchen design area into your home. This design element is functional and whimsical.

This breakfast bar can quickly transition into a dinner bar with a change of time. The brackets can be as simple or as ornate as you choose and incorporating decorative bar stools is a way to add a flair of interest and a pop of color.
