Our house is relatively small, just over 1,100-sq-ft, and just the right size for a California starter home. This means we have to make every space count! Our dining space is located just off the kitchen and next to the patio doors that lead to our sunroom. We spend the majority of our evenings eating at our kitchen island. My husband and I prefer cool and casual dinners over formal affairs, a transitional dining space is all we needed. We chose a small, round mid-century style dining table, which sits four, with eclectic brass dining chairs, which I reupholstered myself. An IKEA hack cabinet functions both as a bar as well as extra cabinet storage. It was the perfect solution for the awkward corner between the window and the patio doors.
