Enjoy Multiple Dining Areas
If your space doesn’t allow for a large seating area, create a few smaller ones. Some sleek stools along an island make a perfect spot for breakfast or predinner snacks. A pedestal table can work with lots of different seating thanks to its airy base. Here, a nook is created with a built-in bench and a few simple chairs.
Mix Warm and Cool
Silvery tones and warm woods create a beautiful harmony in this soothing dining space. A gleaming pendant and plush rug with a bit of shimmer frame the sleek table and chairs for a space that is elegant and easy at the same time.
Make a Statement
The center of attention in your kitchen can be more than a double range. An oversize piece of artwork or photography is a great way to fill a wall not taken up by appliances or cabinetry. A graphic rug is another way to add punch. Often runners are the perfect fit for the room.
Mix It Up
A kitchen by its nature features a myriad of finishes: metal appliances, wood cabinets, marble counters. It makes sense to display a similar mix in the dining area. A simple wooden table feels right at home with modern metal chairs. Likewise, a metal table would pair well with wood or woven chairs.
