Design a dining scheme around your storage requirements. Take advantage of all the space available with floor-to-ceiling shelving. Fit shelves into unused alcoves and use for books and decorative pieces so you won’t need to provide floorstanding shelves or cupboards. Paint your shelves in a different colour to your walls to provide a neat contrast.
Add a table. The ultimate fuss-free option, a simple round table is a sure winner with those who don’t like larger, fitted pieces of furniture. Storage isn’t always about concealing belongings. Position a table in an alcove rather than adding built-in cupboards or shelving and use the tabletop for practical as well as decorative objects, such as lighting, ornaments and photo frames.
