Create sociable seating in a small alcove A built-in bench makes the most of a small alcove for seating many people. For best results, commission a carpenter to build one to your specifications and factor in under-seat storage, too, for a fabulously chic dual-purpose furniture set-up. Upholstery in rich velvet or linen will add a smart touch. Consider using the same fabric for any window treatments, too, to create an elegant but pared-back feel to the tiny space and to give it a simple, harmonious look, rather than chopping up – and therefore shrinking – the space with different shades.See 10 smart ways to maximise a small dining space.

Pick light fittings carefullyLiving with fewer objects often means there’s more focus on the basics of a room, such as the lighting, skirting boards, flooring or window dressings.Well-planned, attractive lighting can add personality to a minimal space. In this neat dining area, three simple pendant lights create a stylish, sculptural effect. The built-in banquettes in a neutral shade also help to create a sleek, streamlined feel.

Make the most of fitted seatsFitted cushion pads are a great way to make banquettes a little more comfortable or create a cosy window seat. The fabric can be a method of introducing some colour as well as adding softness and a contrasting texture.For a good, long-lasting base, use firm foam for the inner padding to give it a smart, neat look. They’ll look best if they’re plump but with sharp edges. If you’d like them to feel a bit softer, wrap in a softer foam.Plain fabrics look lovely in minimal schemes, as seen here, but pattern can work well, too. You can be quite bold, as it’s not usually a large area. If possible, it looks good if the pattern lines up on the front-facing edge or, alternatively, you can use a contrasting complementary fabric.
