You might definitely find kitchen islands, drop leaf furniture and home bars more than marvelous for a small space dining area in your home.

Don’t let the small space put limits on your right to have the same functionality.

Storage is the key! An abundance of shelves and drawers, as well as the storage furniture will help you keep the stuff you want to be displayed and hide the rest with no sacrificing the space. Bookcases with open shelving will keep the space open and airy. Moreover, let them function as a room divider in a studio or an open layout. Bookcase beds and storage beds, as well as the chests are a good way to save floor space and add extra space to keep the stuff.

Little tricks: light colors will undoubtedly create an open and airy look of any room. Don’t be afraid to play with the contrasts – paint the wall and choose the furniture fabric of a lighter color and add some bright and vivid accents in your room. Mirrors will do a good job making an illusion of a spacious room by reflecting light throughout the space.
