When you’re planning out how to furnish and decorate a new home, it’s logical to decide how to use each room around the house. Most follow common sense, but one room you may decide to use differently is the dining room.
In many homes, the traditional dining room doesn’t get used for its original purpose. More commonly, people eat in the kitchen, and only use the dining room for special occasions. This, of course, is a lifestyle choice, and it depends on how big your kitchen is and how far away the dining room is from it.
Sometimes it can be a better solution to knock the wall between the dining room and kitchen down and create a big open plan space – creating a kitchen diner that has plenty of room for a full dining table and dining chairs.
By doing so, you’ll end up with one big serviceable room rather than squeezing into the kitchen simply because you can’t be bothered to carry everything through to the dining room for every meal.
One disadvantage to doing this is that you don’t have anywhere to eat that’s away from the pots and pans of the kitchen, which of course is always the case with a separate dining room. So, if you’re thinking of joining the two rooms together in your house, make sure that you have some way of dividing up the room, so that you can really keep the preparation area separate from the dining area. An ideal solution is to have a peninsula work surface with cupboards that has the working kitchen on one side and the dining area on the other.
