The formal dining room has almost disappeared in modern homes and what has come into existence is the formal yet informal setting of dining table which is a part of the living room and kitchen. Here in this large wall less integrated space the round dining table is placed right in front of the kitchen counter.
A long kitchen without any wall dividing it from the dining room and a simple wooden dining table in sync with the décor of the integrated space dominated by wood is warm and welcoming.
Make a style statement with a stylish piece of dining table right in the middle of the kitchen. The shine of steel and glass compliments the warmth of wood on the kitchen cabinet. The soothing colour and the style of the chairs chosen are making the space chic and contemporary.
Making the most of the available space, the breakfast table of the kitchen has been customized to make it the dining table in the kitchen. To match with the counter-height, the table is kept at the same height and the four chairs are custom-made to match the height of the table.
The light weight dining table doesn’t add heaviness in the small space. The long and narrow space is used by placing the dining table right near the kitchen counter, which can also be used for preparation and storage purposes in this minimalist kitchen.
Apart from considering the colour, style and other details while designing the dining room and kitchen of the home, think about how many people will be regularly using the dining table. We don’t entertain the guests daily and for regular use it’s only the family using the dining table. If it’s only the couple dining together daily with friends and family joining occasionally, a beautifully designed dining table with scope of adding additional chairs will fit perfectly in your home.
The twist in this simple and serene kitchen is provided by the elegant dining table with white marble top matching with the kitchen countertops. Beige colour of the chairs and wooden floor brings in a soothing change in the kitchen dominated by white. The three pendant lamps are strategically placed to enhance the shine of the marble.
The expansive and open plan of this kitchen is utilized to create two different styles of dining table in the same space. The huge island with high chairs forms the informal dining table and beyond it is the formal dining table with high-back chairs for formal gathering.
Double up the functionality of the island in the kitchen by giving it an extension to make it the dining table right in the kitchen. Kept at the same height as that of the counter, the dining table has high chairs with bars to comfortably rest the legs while you enjoy prep time or meal time with your family and friends.
In a kitchen, placement of dining table is important so that the traffic is not interrupted. However, in modern city homes, it is also important to design furniture to play multiple roles so that you can live a maximum life in minimalist lifestyle. Take a clue from here and design the hand crafted rustic dining table and place it near the open kitchen and then decorate the space with art and artefacts making it the favourite hanging place for the family and friends.
The luxurious style of the contemporary kitchen is increased manifold by the ultra-modern dining table right there where the kitchen counter ends. Three legged chairs, engineered stone tabletop and wooden shelves on the side to hold the crockery; the style quotient of the space is further enhanced by concrete floor, wooden wall and three caged pendant lamps adoring the open kitchen.
If possible, replace the concrete wall with the glass to make the kitchen feel spacious and bring the view right into the room. Complement the style of the sleek kitchen with handle-free kitchen cabinets and wood sculpture pedestal dining table with glass top and comfortable seats for those long chat.
