Ninette Bourdon. Dining room. June 12th , 2017.
Wondering what to put at the center of it all? Deciding on a centerpiece for the dining room table can be a bit daunting… How do pick a scene stealer for a piece of furniture, or in some cases, an entire room? Believe it or not, the more we investigated this very question, the more it became clear that sometimes less is more.
Combining a chic, compact and efficient dining area with the kitchen is the modern trend. As the kitchen island often doubles as an informal gathering spot, there is little need for an expansive alternative. With designers offering some ultra-cool tables that allow you to play with different themes, shades and styles, small dining rooms and dining areas represent a hip trend that is here to stay.
Our first DIY dining table and Ike, the adorable pup sitting next it, are both show-stoppers! Handcrafted by Decor and the Dog and inspired by a plan by Ana White, this stunning farmhouse table was made with stud-grade whitewood for a rustic charm.
Do not think of the dining room as a traditional dedicated room with four walls that serve no other purpose. With the advent of the open floor plan and its immense popularity, the ’60s and ’70s idea of box-like rooms seems all but redundant. Contemporary design is all about integrating the living room, dining space and the kitchen as one big, harmonious space. This is precisely why a small dining room is a good option, even if you do have some additional space to spare! Use an area rug to define the dining area. Large pendant lights, contemporary chandeliers and smart recessed lighting can also demarcate the boundaries in a subtle manner.
