Creating the perfect dining space

Creating the perfect dining space

Your kitchen dining space really is the heart of the home. A multi-functional hub where you can gather with friends, family, and your children, it provides a place for eating, socialising, and for some – work! With this in mind, it’s essential to get the layout of the space just right.

Take into consideration size

The size of your space will ultimately give way to the final design of your kitchen. Smaller kitchens are best suited to breakfast bars and small tables that are integrated with your cabinet design and storage space.

Think about layout

Is open plan your thing or would you prefer a partial divide? It’s also a good idea to zone off areas to ensure your kitchen has a good flow.

Consider materials and lighting

For more traditional kitchens, wood is a great option for your dining space. If you’re going for a modern breakfast bar, why not opt for Corian – for something sleek and stylish?

The lighting around your dining area also needs to be good. You don’t want it to be too bright – instead you want to create ambient lighting by layering your light. Layered lighting is also very useful if you’re using your space for other activities – such as work.

Keep things clean and uncluttered

If you’re opting for a kitchen diner, you’re likely to have a lot going on in the space. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to conceal all your pots and pans and integrate appliances for a more relaxing, uncluttered, streamlined look.

Our top design ideas

If you’re still struggling to decide what you want your dining space to look like, why not be inspired by some of our customer kitchens?

In this modern kitchen, a 80mm feature breakfast bar was added for casual dining. This gave the room a more informal and sociable feel – but by using stylish materials like Corian, the final result was still modern and upmarket too.

Creating the perfect dining space

A variety of dining spaces were included in this family kitchen. A small breakfast bar area was tucked on the end of the kitchen island and a large, separate dining table was added to seat the whole family. This really highlighted the size of the room and open-plan feel of the kitchen.

Creating the perfect dining space

For this traditional style kitchen, getting the materials right were key to creating the perfect dining space. A stunning old, oak table was added for more formal dining, and a smaller, round table was cut into the kitchen island for quick eats and breakfast time.

Creating the perfect dining space

This innovative kitchen design reveals that you don’t have to stick to traditional shapes and colours when it comes to your dining space. A curved island bar added real wow factor and has proven to be great for all those social events. The monochrome colour scheme and crisp white table top also throw something a little different into the mix.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
