It is always a good idea to have your kitchen located next to the dining room. However, it is very convenient to have both rooms practically connected to each other or even combined together as one. The connected space will provide you with a fun and open integration of both rooms. If you are looking for ideas about kitchen and dining room combination makeovers, we’ve got you covered!
If you are tired of those ordinary chair seating model in the dining room, maybe it’s time for you to try something different. Incorporate a bench or two into your eating area while reserving the stools or chairs for your kitchen island. Benches will provide you more space and give off that familiarity and cozy vibe in the room. Furthermore, their low profile does not obstruct any sight lines in the space as well so if you happen to adorn your wall with lovely artwork or gallery, it will be full on display. If you have that farm kitchen style then it’s not a bad idea to go for a wooden table, island and stools so it will weave a connective thread through both the kitchen and the eating area. Leaving the open walking area between the kitchen island and the benches/dining table will give an open space illusion. Another great thing about this kitchen and dining room combination makeover is that by incorporating a bench into your eating space allows you to add extra seats that can easily be tucked under the table when they are not in use and thus provides you with more space to move around the room.
Adjoining dining table
This tip is great for homeowners whose space is at premium at home. If having a large dining space is not possible for you then why not having two adjoining dining areas? You can fit a small table into a snug breakfast nook. This way you will not crowd the space. It may only allow you seating for four but you still have more seats in your adjoining countertops where you can convert into bar seating. This method will give you more seating area while simultaneously offers an open space illusion. The dining space faces and opens to the kitchen so it provides an airy floor plan. For a small family of four, this makeover is the perfect solution to your kitchen slash dining room conundrum.
Modern Slash Classic
Why do a combined kitchen and dining room have to have the same design or look? You can integrate a contemporary style with a rustic look and still have a breathtaking outcome. This is a nice and unique division that you can create between the dining room and the kitchen. One simple way to go with this idea is to add a contemporary table in your traditional space. If the main material in your kitchen and dining area is dark wood then a bright white table will be a fresh and matching addition in the room. The table will be reflected throughout nicely if you have hardwood flooring.
These kitchen and dining room combination makeover ideas will give you a great balance and proportion between the two rooms.
