Nicolette Raynaud. Dining room. June 01st , 2017.
Rather than build an entire dining table from scratch, why not re-purpose an object you have hanging out in your basement or garage? Our next DIY dining table, posted on Instructables by Julien Thibeault, was made out of a old reclaimed wood door wrapped in a sheet of metal. He added some Ikea table legs, oil, and stain to complete the sleek, chic look.
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.
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.
Our last collection of centerpieces is so unique, we had to create an entirely different category for their debut. Why put Swimmy and Flipper in the kids’ room when they can be the star of your dining room? The goldfish bowl centerpiece below is the epitome of a “living arrangement.”
