You don’t need a traditional dining room in your apartment to have nice dining. Living in an apartment without a separate dining room is a reality for many renters. If you’ve found yourself faced with creating an eat in area in your small apartment kitchen, here are three space saving ideas to help it fit as seamless as possible.

1. Add A Breakfast Bar
