For a similar reason, opening up a kitchen to a dining room is also a great option for homeowners who enjoy entertaining. From dinners to parties to informal gatherings with friends, open concept kitchen/dining rooms lend themselves especially well to conversation. There are no awkward walls and doorways to block the view of other party goers, and the open concept facilitates easier traffic patterns with large groups as well. Not to mention, many open concept kitchen remodels include islands or bar-style countertops, which are great for appetizers and buffet-style dining.
Smaller spaces such as this one, when laid out and styled intelligently, can still be made to be good examples of dining room design. This coastal style dining room employs wooden floorboards, bleached lumber and wood for the dining table and chairs, as well as carved wood for the side tables in the room. A navy color palette of white wainscoting and molding on blue wallpaper also really sets the tone for the space.
Today, open concept kitchens are used to instantly modernize homes, and create a more consistently functional space. Renovating your existing kitchen by opening it up is also a more cost-efficient option than adding on to your home, which many homeowners also choose to do. By opening the walls that surround the kitchen and “allowing the sightlines to expand beyond the kitchen, you create the perception of more space without the cost of creating more square footage”.
Stylish jet black leather armchairs surround the circular glass dining room table while subtle pieces of furniture are located to the left side of the room. The random tiled limestone flooring along with the glass view doors surrounding the room go well with the circular raised ceiling that holds up the beautiful crystal chandelier. Sophistication and style are the two main points of this dining room design.
The homeowners wanted to have a fresh, bright dining room, so designer Ashley Whittaker helped them pick a showstopping lettuce green shade for the shiny lacquered walls and then kicked it up a notch with bright coral upholstered dining chairs. Painted lantern sconces and a sleek, four-arm, unlacquered brass chandelier play off the casual mood established by the sweet/tart color scheme.

Extra large and in vintage black color, the Carson dining table makes your dining room inviting and adds a touch of style to your home space.
We were blessed in so many ways by this project. Thankfully the wall was not load bearing. Our contractor traded us his labor for the hot tub. We were able to safely remove the hot tub when there were many moments that we weren’t sure it would make it! Plus, we were able to track down 9 year old discontinued flooring. God was certainly at work through the whole process and we are so grateful!
