A “more is more” dining room is doable, even on a budget

Here's how to achieve a vivid, personalised and spacious dining area, even if the square metres are few. An extendable table lets you have more floor space when you want, and more seats for guests when it's time to socialise.

Spoil yourself, and your friends, with some refreshingly red chairs that are comfortable to sit on for hours. KARLJAN is affordable too, so it's an even better choice if you're a first-time mover who's on a budget!

NYMÅNE gives good general lighting, and you can set the mood in an instant with a little help from TRÅDFRI light bulb that's dimmable. Did you know that you can switch between warm and cold lighting too?

Give a decorative and colourful expression to your dining room storage by choosing a shelving unit in untreated wood so you can paint it into personalised perfection.

A rug that you can turn over is practical in more than one way: you can change the look in your dining room in an instant, you get two carpets in one, and you can quickly hide a spill accident!

NIKKEBY can do more than store clothes – it turns out to work as an excellent pedestal too, with lots of space for your green friends.

Make use of the backside of your sofa too by placing it close to the dining table. The sofa's backrest, together with a bench by the extended table, offer more seatings for your guests.
