Challenge 6: Can I really fit a table into my multi-use living space?If your open-plan kitchen and living room isn’t huge, it can be tempting to leave out a dining table completely. If this is your challenge, there might be a way to have all options.In this flat, designer Bhavin Taylor created three zones. The kitchen is tucked neatly at the rear, its pale grey, flat-fronted cabinets receding into the background. The dining area sits between the cooking zone and the exuberantly designed living space. Bhavin chose a circular table, which takes up less space. The walnut finish ties in with the warm tones in the living room, while the pale grey chairs help it blend with the kitchen behind.Discover the bold design in this stylish apartment.Tell us…Which one of these solutions would work in your home?

The kitchen was already in place, so Bhavin toned the soft grey cabinets with dining chairs in a similar shade. “It was important to incorporate a dining table,” he says, “as the owner wanted somewhere to host dinner parties and to work from home.”He chose a circular table, as it takes up less space but still seats four people comfortably. The walnut finish works well with the warm tones in the flooring.“The kitchen felt quite separate from the rest of the open-plan room,” Bhavin says. To bring it back into the space, he persuaded the owner to make the bold decision of going for a mustard paint colour on the kitchen walls. “It instantly connected the spaces,” the designer says.A strip of white wall near the hallway door showcases a floor lamp the owner already had.Dining table; dining chairs; ladder shelving unit, all West Elm.
