Dining room is a place where all the family members sit and spend their most of time sharing meals and having fun. On your normal days you can easily accommodate your family but on holidays you can have to deal with large gatherings. Here I would like to provide you temporary and permanent solutions to accommodate more guests in your dining room.
If you have small family then one temporary solution is that you can rent some chairs and tables for your dining room in case of any gathering. In case of a large family, you have to think of a permanent solution. Look at the tips to accommodate more people in a small dining room.
Know your area: First of all you should have enough knowledge about your dining room area. If you have enough area then seating arrangements can be managed. On the other hand if you have formal and informal dining room space then the solution of your problem is to use both the spaces for large parties. You can also use outdoors as well.
Seating arrangements: One of the possible solutions is to do group seating arrangement. Seats in the form of benches are a good way to maximize the space and adjust more people as compare to the individual seats. A single bench can accommodate more number of children without any worry.
Use the space of adjacent rooms: This idea works well if you have different age groups of people partying together. Some people will prefer eating, some gossips while children playing so you can use the space of another adjacent room or kitchen as well. In this way all the people will do their activity.
Move to outdoors: It is good idea to set the arrangement of dinner at outdoor. Outdoor dining party with some lightening arrangement will add charm to the party. You can use the area of porch as well as lawns. Outdoor party is perfect idea because people will get more space to do all the activities while children get their playing area.
