Key piece of furniture: Dining table and chairs
Most people do not just eat at their dining room table. Many use it for other purposes such as crafts and homework; sometimes it even acts as your prep counter or temporary work spot. Your dining room table needs to be able to accommodate your family, as most of us eat there at least once a day, while still fitting into the “style” of your home you’re trying to achieve.
Factors to consider:
- Adding a bar is a fantastic way to contribute to a relaxed atmosphere for entertaining. It’s perfect to lay out snacks during a party as well as for your kids to eat breakfast before school. It also adds character to your kitchen, providing you with something not all kitchens have.
- Consider adding cabinets to your furniture design if you have extra space in your dining area, to hold kitchen items you only use every now and then. Shelving is also a great way to display statement dishes, such as China ware, that you rarely use.
- A few good stools can turn any counter space into extra room for casual dining. Stools and/or bar stools are also a great way to add in a pop of color or print to your dining area, without overdoing it.
These simple furniture updates to your kitchen are great ways to bring life such a popular meeting place. Whether you need to accommodate more people at your dining room table or are looking to bring color into your kitchen or dining room, it will help to make your home more appealing.
