Normal is boring! Five fresh dining space ideas

GalinTheHood By Michelle Langi
Benches and bay windows go hand in hand but why stop at a bench? Why not add a table and a few chairs on the opposite side to create a casual breakfast area?

A table flanked by chairs on either side where occupants of a house gather to eat does not define a dining area. You can create a dining nook in any section of your home. Booths are practical ways to seat several guests in a small space as evident in most coffee shops. Pairing a table with a bench or booth at home results in a different way to design your dining area. Most people refer to this as a breakfast nook but practically any meal can be had in this area at any time of the day. We show you how to fit a dining nook in any space of your home.

Benches with storage: A bench that has top loading storage or front loading storage saves on space for books, toys and upholstery.

 

 

Bay window dining area: Benches and bay windows go hand in hand but why stop at a bench? Why not add a table and a few chairs on the opposite side to create a casual breakfast area?

 

 

Off The Island: Use your island as a prop to build your dining into. You can incorporate benches on the island or actual chairs that push back into the island.

 

 

Quadrant table: Do not be confined by rectangular and round tables. This table takes continuity from the wall in its design.
