The Makeovers of Dining Rooms
Well-designed dining rooms portray simple function and elegance. To some extent, the dining room has taken a beating in our fast-paced modern life, but a revival is on the way as many rediscover the art of dining as a family, and with friends. The dining rooms’ design facilitates, through its furnishings, style, and practicality, its connection to a busy kitchen, but sufficient difference to allow for the fun of friendship and family. Keep an eye on the dining room’s practicality, as it doubles not only for parties but also for the more regular daily tasks of a family. The designer’s challenge in any dining room is to find the right mix between an appropriate standard of luxury and to create a space where people want to linger for hours over an after-dinner bottle of wine.
