Hello lovely readers of 2 Cats and Chloe. My name is Dagmara and I write a lifestyle blog focused around home décor named Glamista Home. Susan has been so kind to let me take over her blog for the day. Today I wanted to share with you how I solved the problem of small dining room space.
When we first moved to our current apartment we had a long brown table that could comfortable fit 4+ people. The table was great there was only one problem the space looked really cramped.
I didn’t enjoy sitting at the table and started to feel claustrophobic. On one side there was the kitchen bar, on the other the bedroom door. I really don’t like to sit in the walk path. Something about that just doesn’t sit right with me (pardon the pun) Are you the same way and do not like sitting what feels like the major traffic area?
So, it was clear a new table has to come in. After a long back and forth I decided that a round table from CB2 would be perfect for the space. I have also opted for a white table, to make that area brighter and more inviting. Now it seems like the light coming through the window reflects on the table top and make the space welcoming and more specious.
Most of my living room décor is white as well, so the table blends well with the rest of the apartment space and doesn’t look out of place. Because of the color the living and dining space flow well together while still being well defined. If you have an open plan floor plan, like me you can define your dining or living areas by strategically placing rugs and light fixtures.
What do you think? Do you like the “after” shot or “before”?
