The kitchen is the perfect place to gather, but the dining room should not be ignored. The choice of your table is essential because of the shape and space it will occupy. A round table is much more convivial, facilitates communication between each person and is perfect in a modern decor to soften all the rectilinear shapes found there. The rectangular shape remains the most classic of all tables, being a practical shape for its different lengths, it allows infinite possibilities due to the extensible panels that can be added to it. A square table is the hybrid between the round and the rectangular, it is just as user-friendly and can be extended on occasion! So which one will you choose?


Optimize your small apartment living room

If you still want to put a coffee table, but the space available in the living room is limited because of the various objects, opt for a coffee table with storage. This is an alternative that doesn't require you to have a bookcase to store your books and gives you a space to eat in the living room if you are the type of person who doesn't want to use the dining room! 


There are a multitude of ideas that can be exploited to optimize the storage of a small living room, don't neglect the hiding places that you could have in your sofa. To store blankets, books and cousins, this is an excellent alternative that can be used to save you from cluttering up the space with furniture that takes up space and helps you make the most of your small space!
