Compact Dining Area Ideas
We talked about compact kitchens but what about compact dining areas? A small kitchen that also doubles as a dining can be too tight to house a table and chairs plus all the kitchen stuff. A small dining area that is preferrably folds away can be a perfect solution to a small kitchen where every inch of space counts.
Compact Dining Ideas
A compact kitchen called Board designed from Pietro Arosio for Snaidero provides a tabletop for two beside a folding sink and a hot plate. The kitchen block can serve as a room divider or place against the wall. The Board is a part of the kitchen block that folds down and provides additional kitchen amenities and a small wooden tabetop.
Another example of a compact dining furniture is a kitchen drawer design concept from Alno. Some of the drawers make for seats and a table. Not too practical when it comes to the seats, but this drawer would make for a great retractable tabletop.
This amazing retractable dining table was concieved by Ochre Architects. The table is divided in several parts that can be used separately or together for a bigger tabletop.
There are also dining sets that were designed to occupy as much less spare space as possible. The chairs and table are strackable or are forming a uniform object. AndViceVersa design studio created A-Cute, a multifaceted table with the chairs that when tucked in become one with the table.
