Happy New Year, WOW welcome to 2021 and the end of January. I can’t believe where the time has gone. I know I had a crazy busy finish to the year and didn’t get around to my Blogs. So I have started up again while on holiday, getting fresh new ideas, and planning new projects.
Following on from Blog #5 Living Room, the Dining Room is the next room that ties all the living spaces together. Flowing on from the Kitchen the dining room is a more common place to eat dinner, family gatherings, friends over, sometimes it’s just a table that sits there and looks pretty or fills up with random items. Pretty sure a few dining rooms were used as homes offices during lockdown, I know that’s where my hubby set up.
Most new builds now days have the space for the dining room to be centred around a lovely feature table or a table to have a feature pendant light. Older homes used to have the dining room separate from the kitchen and lounge, now-days these homes are being renovated to open up these spaces and create one big space that allows better flow from the kitchen into the dining room and then into the living room. When designing your dining room whether it be from scratch for a new build or renovating an older house there are a few things that need to be considered.
Furniture – This is a very personal taste for the home owner. But there are so many options to think of. Do you want wood, what colour wood, do you want steel, glass, plastic, or another unique product. What sort of seats do you want wood, cushion, hard or plastic, how many people do you entertain, could you mix seats with a bench, does your table clash colours with your flooring or does it stand out.
