A hundred years ago, they didn’t do without a canteen in the house - it was not just an important, but an obligatory room. It was there that the family was going to have lunch and dinner, all major holidays, family celebrations were celebrated here, many guests were received in this room. But in Soviet times, small-sized apartments became relevant, and the dining room began to be combined with the living room or to equip the kitchen so that it also served for meals. This practice exists now, but the good old traditions are beginning to return, and the interior of the dining room is now concerned not only with owners of country houses, but also with owners of city apartments.
Dining room combined with kitchen
This option is comfortable, as it is convenient to serve, and the hostess can communicate with the guests while preparing food. Kitchen design style should correspond to the part of the room, which is allocated for dining. It is possible to separate the working area from the place for rest and lunch using zoning; will help competent planning of the kitchen, as well as a few simple techniques:
- you can put the bar, which will serve as the visual boundary of a large kitchen;
- zones should be trimmed with different materials that match in color, use tiles for the floor in the kitchen area, and laminate in the dining room;
- zoning can be done with the help of light, using pendant lamps, wall lamps and even floor lamps.
Today, uniting into one large area a kitchen, dining room and living room is a favorite design move, a popular modern solution for any home.
However, the interior of the kitchen-dining room must always be complete with minimal isolation of zones. In the dining area place the table and chairs, if space permits - a small buffet with tea-ware, decorative items. Under these circumstances, a good ventilation system is important, which will reliably protect those present from the total spread of cooking odor.
Dining room in classic style
The interior of the dining room in a classic style should be extremely strict, no frills. It is better to choose furniture made of natural wood, if the chairs are upholstered, then it should match the color of the curtains, it is better to prefer a soft pastel range. In such a dining room, it is more than appropriate (especially if the dining room is large) large crystal chandeliers and the same wall sconces. Classics require to take into account when arranging the decor and small accessories principle of symmetry.
Classic styles usually imply the presence of carving on the backs of chairs and original candelabra, antiques are appropriate here. The dining table should be placed in the very center of the room. If the dining room is located in a large country house, it is worthwhile to arrange a fireplace in it. The interior of the dining room in a classic style suggests the presence of light tones: beige, light gray, pistachio, but golden shades are also possible, bright purple color, which perfectly combines with silver decor.
A classic dining room should be festive, but warm and cozy. In the classic interior design usually include mirrors.
They visually enlarge the room and give it "pomp". The mirror must be installed so that it reflects the dining table. The dining room is usually enlivened by soft home textiles, carpet on the floor and large curtains.
The interior of the living-dining room is designed in the same style, but in this case the room usually also has upholstered furniture, sofas and armchairs, coffee tables, a floor lamp, a music center and a TV. The interior of a small dining room can be visually altered by placing a large floor-to-ceiling mirror in the room, using only light colors (perfect shades of white) when finishing, this will make the small hall more visually spacious.
The interior of a modern dining room can be solved in fashionable styles: minimalism or popular high-tech. This style is preferred by lovers to live in a fast rhythm, besides hi-tech as it can visually enlarge the space.
Sharp forms and straight swift lines of this style do not contradict the idea of arranging a dining room. The dining table made of glass should be in harmony with the chairs of modern forms. As a decor, you should use various chrome "technical" accessories with rivets and fasteners. The mirror in front of the table is appropriate, it will increase the space. There should be a lot of light: swivel lamps on brackets and stands, hidden LED lights wherever possible. It is very good to buy a chrome chandelier with perforation, it will emphasize the overall style.
The color in the interior of the high-tech dining room needs to be carefully considered. It can be not only monochrome combinations of white and black, but also more interesting color contrast:
- black with red;
- yellow with bright blue;
- red with bright green;
- purple with white.
If the high-tech style framed the entire studio apartment, which is quite common, and the dining room is combined with the living room and kitchen, all the furniture in the kitchen should be very functional, but executed in a modern style.
