Expand with Contemporary Dining Room Furniture
Posted on 09/13/2011 in View All ,
Every room in the home requires space planning, but arranging contemporary dining room furniture to expand an area can be the most difficult. It’s hard to strike the delicate balance between filling a void and crowding a room, and the necessity of a large table compounds that difficulty. Like any arrangement, you have to know a dining space well before you furnish it, and you need to be willing to sacrifice a romantic ideal to create an aesthetic layout.
Not all homes have a floor plan that allows an expansive dining room. Some apartments contain just a nook, and condensed houses have only an area connected to the kitchen. These layouts work fine for functional eating, but using them to entertain guests can be a challenge. If your home doesn’t have a distinct room for dining, try to work with your limited area—or consider adapting another room into a temporary place for eating. If you only need to seat a large number of guests for the holidays, the couches in a living room can hidden in a bedroom to allow a long table and chairs to come down from the attic.
For those working with a defined space, though, the constraints are still difficult. Oftentimes the feel is more important than the function, so while a thin table may be crowded with food and the arms of a lot of extended relatives, they’ll still enjoy themselves as long as the room itself doesn’t feel crowded. Purchase a dining set that permits plenty of floor space for walking—and if possible a cabinet and bar to store trays of food and, when not in use, good dishes. It may not be the grand, expansive dining room you envisioned for your home, but consolidating space with contemporary dining room furniture will lead to many meals your guests will be sure to love.blog comments powered by Disqus
