Invest in a lazy susan so you can keep cutlery and dishes at hand during meal times. Use it to also hold your potted plants and herbs.

Get each family member to contribute their favourite artefact to the table décor to give the space an inherent personal feeling.

We can almost hear the light-hearted laughter and banter brimming at this table. After all, nothing says family time like everyone huddled over hot steaming plates of food in a warm, welcoming spot surrounded by loved ones. Often, it’s difficult to carve out a separate dining space in small apartments, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The trick lies in creating a visual demarcation, if not a physical one. Nothing says cafe-casual like a chequered print – so opt for a wallpaper with big, loose squares that seem like they’re hand-painted. Next, add simple, slim table and chairs, and if you’re short on space, you can buy foldable ones too. A lazy susan at hand will help you arrange everything you need for dinner time, so you don’t have to get up mid conversation to fetch things from the kitchen. Placing a quirky object will help make a cheery spot – it can be an artwork, a flea market find or even just flowers. Hang a large pendant overhead and you’re all set to make more wonderful memories.
