Image from Svermeri Combine your kitchen and dining with great lighting. With so many of us seemingly moving toward smaller space living, we find ourselves trying to make full use of each space... Efficiency matters when you have a certain amount of design elements you want to fit in a limited amount of space. Combining the kitchen and dining room is a great example of efficient space saving. If you have a dining room, but would rather use it for an office, try creating a small dining room in the kitchen. Or, if your home is small enough you may not have any other option than to combine the kitchen and dining spaces. Whichever your reason for combining these two rooms, here's some fabulous modern design ideas.... Possini Euro Arlo Chrome 18-Inch-H Pendant Light In all cases, I cannot emphasize the importance of  modern pendant lighting ! It helps to define a space within a space. Otherwise, it might just look like you have a misplaced table and chairs floating in your kitchen. Also, white is a great choice when it comes to lighting, wall color, etc. It helps the space look more open.

This dining nook above has beautiful wood furniture and hardwood floors, but does a great job opening up the small space by using  white pendant lighting . Ivory Cardiogram Ivory Fabric Shade Chandelier When the hanging kitchen lighting is white and the walls and/or cabinets are also white, it creates a seamless design aesthetic, while still providing lighting and function to the space. Image from Unfinished Home White is a great color option in small spaces. This design above does a great job mixing and matching different materials and hues. The black, bold chairs look great with the natural/white table and dark green cabinets. But again, the white subway tiles, white walls and white lighting open up the space perfectly. White Bowl Shade Downlite 15 3/4-Inch-W Pendant Light Do you rent an apartment maybe and don't want to hassle with any electrical work? A really great solution for this, which also looks smart, is a floor lamp.  Image from Nordic Days Have you ever thought of a floor lamp for your dining nook? Maybe you're just not sure where you want to establish your dining area yet and want temporary lighting in the meantime... Either way, a floor lamp is a great option that is not often considered. Just make sure to situate it out of the way, against the wall like this space above. Adjustable White Robert Abbey Boom Floor Lamp I hope these ideas help!
