5 Dining Area Looks You'd Love to Try
There’s a style for different needs and tastes
If the kitchen is considered the heart of the home, then the dining area might be the veins where everything that comes from the kitchen circulates. This is where meals are served and happy conversations ensue. Therefore, it is important that it's kept appealing to make your gatherings more memorable. Here are some ideas:
1. Contemporary neutral
This style is neutral not just in terms of color but also in taste, as it can appeal to almost everyone. This is ideal for big families with members from different age groups—from children to grandparents.
2. Modern and high-end
This dining area designed by interior designer Wilan Dayrit may be small but it is full of exquisite elements. The dining table is made of Carrara marble—it doesn’t need additional ornamentation because it is already a statement on its own. Meanwhile, an Arturo Luz artwork hangs on the wall and it reveals the homeowners’ sophisticated taste.
3. Casual French-country
A dining table doesn’t always need to be paired with dining chairs—benches work just as well. Secondhand furniture pieces comprise this dining area, and the distressed legs of the benches spell French-country. Benches suit your dining space if you often have friends over because it’s easy to seat more people with benches rather than individual dining chairs.
4. American Country
Conjure up the feeling of being in a suburban community. Furnish your dining area with a wooden farmhouse table—its shapely legs give your space a traditional feel. Mix dining chairs with benches to make the look casual and add subtle details like floral wallpaper.
5. All White
An all-white space isn’t always plain and boring. In fact, in this dining area in Batangas, the all-white scheme makes it arresting coupled with clean-lined furniture pieces. If you want an all-white dining area, it is best to situate in an area that is filled with natural light for a bright and airy look. If you have a stunning view outside, by all means, showcase it by way of glass windows.
