It’s no secret that open-plan areas are a big hit these days, considering how much potential they add to a home in terms of space and socialising. But even though kitchens and living rooms are by far the most common spaces being designed in open-plan layouts, it’s not uncommon to see a dining area sneaking in here and there.Let’s take a peek examples of open-plan living- and dining rooms, just in case you require some inspiration for your own home.
Dining tables and chairs absolutely need to be proportional with each other, as there's no use in having a low table and tall chairs!

With back supports in place, comfort AND relaxation will be combined to perfection.
