Dining Room / January 13, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
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.
This simple dining area is created right inside the living room, and is adds to the beauty and texture of the room with its subtle colors and simplicity. When it comes to dining rooms, ideas have no limits.
We suspect that almost everybody has seen these dining chairs before, as the design has become nothing short of iconic. Structural wooden legs, connected with black metal struts and topped off with an ergonomic moulded plastic seat create a beautifully retro meets modern aesthetic and thanks to the popularity of the style, there's a version to suit all budgets. Even IKEA has a range of these, making them a cost-effective and practical investment.
One point to keep in mind when choosing a table is how it will influence the social factor of your dining room. A round table is perfect for when you want to encourage conversation around the dining table. Also, it doesn’t allow anybody to sit at the head of the table, which is perfect for when you want to avoid any type of hierarchy.The same is true for square tables; however, square tables take up more space than round ones. And for the same number of diners, it’s better to opt for a rectangular one, as it offers more seating areas.
