DO use cohesive design elements. Just because you’re combining two rooms that were once “separate” doesn’t mean you can keep them completely design-independent of each other. The best designers will tell you to pick a few cohesive elements and integrate them in all spaces now connected by your open floor plan. For example, similar colored trimmings or accent colors throughout will create a connected aesthetic and prevent rooms from competing with each other.
The table and chairs act as the focal point of your dining room, but show the rest of your space some love, too. "Do something unexpected," advises Rachel Bliefnick, founder of the design blog This Is Our Bliss. "Give your ceiling an interesting paint treatment, or put punchy pillows on your dining chairs and then layer a bold rug over your existing one."
The approximate costs and value of a typical Dining Room Remodeling project are summarized below. Use higher estimates for larger metropolitan areas and the lower estimates where home prices are below the national average. Adjust costs for substitutions or refinements in the last section. For size differences of up to 25%, scale total costs in direct proportion to the size of your project. Use the adjusted costs as a basis for setting a material budget and for comparing contractor bids (if you choose to have a professional perform the work).
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.

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 open plan of this luxury dining room keeps the space bright and undeniably roomy. The polished marble flooring, white walls and numerous surrounding floor to ceiling windows, and brightly lit tray ceiling also all help with keeping the dining room feeling spacious. The choice of a long dark wood dining table and faux alligator skin upholstered chairs are also nice touches.
