A 24-hour dining room
We created a small space dining area where you can eat, work and play all in one. Gather your friends and family to stay the whole day!
Make room. An extendable table creates space for company and an early bird brunch. Instead of foldable chairs, consider a stackable set of sturdier extra seats. Feel free to mix styles with armrests and padded backs that support different needs. We even used a bench to help seat eight guests.
Get a sidekick. Keep essential items close to the table with a shelving unit. Place everyday cutlery on shelf inserts, or store supplies inside drawers — and pull them out when inspiration strikes. We chose a customisable series like SVALNÄS to create a storage system that fit our needs.
Set the mood. Dimmable lighting makes for cosy times around the table, especially when sharing a warm family dinner. A pendant lamp spreads an even amount of light across the table, while a paper lantern gives off a more subdued, soothing glow. Candles work just as well, too.
Bundle up. We stored cushions, throws and chair pads in the bench to make game nights more comfortable. And brightening the lights means you’ll see your opponent’s moves without straining your eyes.
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
