Sharing a meal at home is a time-honored ritual that brings family and friends closer together. When you are planning your whole home remodel, consider how you would like to gather around the table for meals. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind:
Create a Mood
Unlike other rooms in your home, a dining area is typically used for one purpose only, serving and eating meals. What mood do you want this space to have? Are you looking for something intimate and elegant or something more formal and traditional? Start with an idea of how you want the room to feel.
How will the dining area integrate with the rest of your space? If you are planning on an open layout for your home, rather than a separate dining room, the dining area needs to work visually within the space while also being distinctly defined. This can be accomplished with ceiling treatments, such as soffits, or with window placement, color transitions, flooring transitions, and many other options. Working with a professional designer, you will discover which ideas are most appealing to you.
Deciding on a focal point and defining style for your dining area helps make the room memorable and unique. A focal point could be artwork, a dramatic light fixture, or a striking piece of furniture. Will your dining room style be traditional, modern, transitional, or some combination of styles? Choose the right furniture and accessories to communicate your vision with the help of a design expert.
Sharing meals in your home is a simple joy that makes a big difference in how much you enjoy your space. The dining area in your whole home remodel can add wonderful rituals and memories to your lifestyle with the help of an experienced team.
