8 ways to decorate the dining area in the kitchen
Hint 1. Carpet is the best way to distinguish a dining area
The carpet will mark the boundaries of the dining area, visually allocate it and, in addition, make it more comfortable, especially if the kitchen floor is tiled.
The shape of the carpet should be chosen in accordance with the shape of the table. For example, for a round table you should choose a round or square carpet, and for a rectangular table - a rectangular (or oval).
And to make the carpet easy to clean and not to mark, choose a lint-free or short-curved nylon or wool coating.
Tip 2. A lamp hung directly above the table is the prerogative of not only the grand dining room, but also the dining area in the kitchen
This technique will not only create pleasant lighting and highlight the dining area, but also give it a grand look. True, the transfer of the lamp from the center to the section above the table should be planned long before the repair. However, this can be done together with the installation of a stretch ceiling at any time.
It is desirable that the fixtures can be easily adjusted along the length. Then, by lowering the plafond / shade lower, you can create a cozy light at dinner. And lifting high under the ceiling - create a general lighting of the kitchen. By the way, for lighting the dining area, it is worth choosing light bulbs of a warm yellow spectrum, then the food on the table will look more appetizing.
If the transfer of the lamp is no longer possible, you can always hang a wall on the wall near the table (example in the photo) or put the table lamp on the windowsill if the dining area is located near the window.
Tip 3. Pictures, posters and other decorations on the wall near the table will give the kitchen a complete look
The design of the dining area almost always requires decorating the wall near the table with some decor. Correctly selected decoration, for example, a picture, can "make friends" with incongruous elements of the situation, refine the interior, reflect your taste and will please the household during meals.
Since the wall at the dining table is always at risk of getting dirty, it is not worth it to decorate it with paintings or posters without glass. If you want to buy modular paintings or posters on stretchers, we recommend to make sure that the image is printed with more resistant eco-solvent, rather than pigmented ink.
Traditionally, the walls at the dinner table make out:

Tip 4. Do you want comfort? Just put the pillows on the chairs
Even the most simple chairs, a bench, a sofa or stools can be made more comfortable and beautiful with the help of pillows, capes (for example, fur) or covers. Washing you will definitely increase, but the kitchen will be very cozy.
Tip 5: Tracks and / or subtitles - garnish and protect the table
While tablecloths are more suitable for festive serving, tracks and subtitles are needed every day. Having in their stocks several sets of such "dresses" for the table, you can easily change the design of the dining area in the mood.
