Dining Room Designs
In the modern home, a dining room does not solely become a dining room but is also a storage place, a place for the kids to do their homework and often an office for you when you bring stuff home. If this is te case then you will need to consider the furniture more carefully to encompass all its purposes.
You can still make a statement in a multi functional room, so go for something dramatic like patterned curtains and bold prints. If you are handy on a sewing machine then run up a set or curtains yourself, and use the same fabric to make matching seat covers to pull the room together.
Get something to make a feature like a fantastic oak table, and pick some plain chairs that won’t take away from the statement piece.
If you don’t actually have a dining room you can add a breakfast bar into the kitchen to allow you somewhere to sit and eat.
Go for bar stools that tick under for maximum space. If on the other hand you prefer your dining room to be separate and stand alone, then create an air of formality by using really dark wood. It looks sumptuous and crisp but exudes a posh feel. Opt for leather chairs with high backs to really finish the look. If you are looking for a bit more of a modern, shaker style kitchen then opt for white table and chairs and a matching dresser. Se light pastel coloured accessories.
If you are making any major changes to your home then make sure you consult your Home Insurance policy to see if you are still covered.
