Open kitchens, or “open concept kitchens,” can do wonders to transform your home. And while there are a wide variety of ways to design and execute an open concept floor plan, perhaps the most popular route is opening up a kitchen to a dining room. Here is an in-depth guide on how to execute opening up a wall between kitchen and dining room, as well as an overview of the benefits of making this move in your home.

Wow I love this transformation!! Your dining room is beautiful and you have such a great story behind it. My husband and I bought a log cabin-style home (our first home!) and we have pine boards just like yours throughout our house. Are you glad you painted them white? Would you recommend doing that throughout the house and leaving the pine trim in it’s original state? Do you mind sharing which white paint you chose?


DO direct traffic away from work areas. A common problem suffered by small kitchens is too many circulation routes, which, in turn, disrupts the primary activity areas, such as the sink, stovetop, and dishwasher. And with all that overly used space in the kitchen, the dining room suffers from lack of use. Combining the kitchen and the dining rooms into one spacious family room/kitchen is a much better choice for a formal lifestyle. Plus, by opening up the kitchen to the dining room, you can easily direct traffic away from high traffic areas in the kitchen, and maximize efficiency.

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.

The plain white paint finish of the intricately detailed wall panels, shelving, and cabinetry, along with the ceiling moldings and the plain white ceiling contrast really well with the dark browns of the polished oak floor boards, the polished solid wood dining table as well as the carved wooden dining chairs. The black fireplace, blue and white area rug, and the crystal chandelier up the classiness of the room even more.
DO make the new design functional. Yes, looks are important, but if this remodel that you’ve invested tons of time and money into doesn’t make logical sense, you will regret it.  Your remodeled space needs to be a proper working kitchen. Good architectural design “solves functional requirements first and aesthetics second. A good working floor plan allows you to live in your house with ease and comfort; it will function properly and help make your remodeled home feel and look appropriate”.

Now, I’m not saying that if you really love the hot tub life that this wouldn’t work for you. Me? I’m not really a hot tubbing kind of gal. Especially not in the middle of the house. The “spa room” wasn’t my speed and I knew I wanted to remove it. Much to the kids’ dismay, the ability to remodel this room was a make it or break it for me. Either the hot tub went or we didn’t buy the house. Thankfully, we made it happen and the story is quite remarkable!
Schumacher's Chenonceau paper feels both modern and old-fashioned, with a pattern reminiscent of traditional paper-cutting. A round table by Ballard Designs softens the room's right angles; Crate & Barrel's white bentwood chairs provide contrast. The old curtains were the home-decor equivalent of a dowdy skirt that hits midcalf; new floor-length, linen drapes give the room elegance.

This living room is adorned by beautifully varnished wooden furniture, stylish glass and metal mantle pieces, a beautiful glass chandelier, and a classic geometric pattern area rug. Its polished hardwood floor matches the white walls and wainscoting and the tray ceiling above. The traditional aesthetic and the well-placed fireplace makes this room extremely homey and welcoming.
Start with a concrete idea of what you want the dining room to be at the end of the design process. At this point, be as wild and imaginative as you can. And then, like carving a masterpiece out of a block of wood, slowly chip away the ideas that don’t go well with the overall theme you are trying to pull. Keep refining and keep simplifying until you are left with a design that would make seasoned interior designers proud.

Hello my friends! I’m excited to finally reveal our dining room remodel before and after photos! This was the first and largest project we tackled when we moved into our new home last March and yet it somehow flew under the radar on the blog! Apparently I’ve been too busy to remember to share it with you! However, it is here now so let’s get to some dining room remodel before and after shots!

Does your dining room need some serious decor assistance? I have seen so many lovely dining room decor ideas lately and quickly came to realize my own was downright dull. With only a table and chairs and your run of the mill hardware store lighting, my dining room was functional but far from pretty. Searching far and wide on Pinterest for some ideas, I quickly realized the best ones were almost all DIY! With the rustic farmhouse look being oh so popular, I knew I was really in luck. I found step by step tutorials for shelving, tables, centerpieces and wall accents, chairs, clocks and curious, plus a few other fun ideas I just had to share with you. If you are looking for some do it yourself ideas that will fit almost any budget or some crafty ways to express your creativity in your dining room, these awesome projects are perfect!
Are you interested in transforming your dining space from a bland, lifeless layout to a charming farmhouse design that’s warm and welcoming? Is your new design almost complete, but you’re looking for a few extra touches to complete the look? Whatever you’re looking for, these farmhouse dining room design ideas add a vintage-inspired touch that can make you feel like you stepped into an old country farmhouse, even if you live in a suburban area. These inviting, wide-open spaces offer a sense of peace and calmness that you can’t get with most modern designs.
