Whether you have too much space or too little space, creating the perfect dining area in a kitchen/dining room can be difficult, as we want to utilise this space in the best way possible and not ruin it. Many of us don’t even know where to begin when considering dining area choices, which means we tend to go for the safer options. That is why we’ve come up with a few ways that can help you in forming the perfect dining space for your kitchen:
A lot of us will use kitchen/dining areas to host family meals or entertain guests, whether it be Christmas dinner or an intimate dinner party. If you want a great dining space in your kitchen but don’t want a huge, lengthy dining table taking up most of the space in your kitchen, try opting for an extending table that works for everyday use as well as allowing you to fit extra guests around the table when needed.
A trend that is also seemingly on the rise is using a bench as seating. Not only does this save space as it can be pushed under the table, but even the added bit of extra space means that you could be able to accommodate an extra guest or two either side of the table, meaning you could save yourself spending extra money on a brand new table!
Depending on how dramatic you’ve been with the design of your kitchen, you might be able to keep your dining area simple but still make a statement by keeping the colours and design neutral! On the other hand, if you feel your kitchen/dining area needs a bit of extra life and sprucing up, then there are many ways you can make your dining area a centrepiece within your room. Try using chairs that mix in bold colours or patterns to draw attention to the area as soon as you walk in the room. Alternatively, try mixing and matching the design of the chairs; you don’t necessarily always need a matching set!
Breakfast bars are a great way to make the most out of a kitchen/dining area that might not be able to fully accommodate a dining table! This is a relaxed space that serves many purposes, such as: eating, entertaining, working, or a great space to read a book in peace! If this is somewhere you feel you will spend a lot of time at, make sure your seating is comfortable. Our Deluxe Snella Bar Stools offer great comfort with a cushioned seat and backrest, as well as contemporary style. If you want to add something that’s a bit more outlandish and brave, take a look at our Sorrento Kitchen Bar Stool in blue. This seat adds a chic blend of comfort and style to your breakfast bar, as well as adding an exciting splash of colour.
If your kitchen/dining area is a bit too small for any of the features that have already been mentioned, do not worry; there’s still a way to add a stylish dining area to your space! A round table can often save quite a lot of space whilst still adding a functional dining space that you and your family can comfortably sit around. On the other hand, you can use a long, slimline table that can be pushed against one wall, meaning you can add extra dining space without taking up too much room and making the area look crowded! If your room can accommodate to this, built-in bench seating can add a great talking point to the space, as well as making it a fun, family-friendly dining area!
