1.A bar-counter to eat on the way
To delimit the dining area of the living room, the bar-counter is a functional and practical solution. It is ideal for studios and small apartments that don’t have room for a proper dining room. So, if you want to give each room its true function and stop eating on the coffee table in front of the TV, opt for a kitchen with a bar.
2.A central island to reorganize the space
At home, cooking is an integral part of your life and that of your family. Since you can’t push the walls to save space. Why not take advantage of this opportunity to install a central island? You’ll gain worktops, storage space ( 10 solutions optimize space), a dining area and you’ll finally have that demarcation between the living room and the kitchen that you’ve been dreaming of. Indeed, if you hate closed kitchens, you don’t like the feeling of cooking next to the sofa either.
3.An interior glass roof for an industrial decoration
This solution makes it possible to obtain a semi-open kitchen without losing any brightness. You have a view of your guests and the course of the meal while being protected from prying eyes on the dessert. Moreover, it gives a small industrial side to your kitchen, what more could you ask for?
4.An interior claustra for a design separation
If you’re getting tired of the fashion for industrial style glasses, the interior claustra. It is a kind of stylish and original privacy screen that gently separates spaces without dividing them at all costs.
5.A mix of tiled and parquet flooring to delimit spaces
Another more subtle possibility to mark two spaces: if you don’t want to partition or separate at eye level, you can play with two very different types of flooring, for example a tile/parquet mix or cement tile/waxed concrete, as you wish!
6.A false ceiling to highlight the dining area
The last possibility, which is very practical in the old one where the ceiling height is usually generous, is to install a false ceiling with a row of LED spotlights or industrial luminaires. The transition between the kitchen and the living room is resolutely design and the dining area is highlighted.
