Which means it’s an especially ideal solution if you don’t have room for a kitchen and dining room, as it makes double use of the space.
The bar also means you can have some designer bar stools on the show, perfect for providing a stylistic accent in an otherwise small room. You don’t have much room to make an impact. So take every chance you can to do so.

There is a science behind colour and space perception, so use it!
Yellows, whites and other bright colours are a perfect way to achieve this look. Even having a sample of yellow on one wall or a brilliant piece of art can work, depending on your preferences. White is always a safe option if you find any other colours too bright or otherwise aesthetically unpleasant.
