Design of dining room

The traditional separate dining room is gradually disappearing into the past, giving way to more practical combined facilities: a kitchen-dining room, a dining-room or a mix of these three rooms.

  • The dining room combined with the kitchen and / or the living room is much more convenient than the separate one, if the hosts prepare and cover the table themselves, without helpers. And, of course, it allows you to use the available meters more rationally.

At the same time, the modern dining room is still a ceremonial area, though more democratic and functional. That is, it can be used both for meetings with guests on special occasions (for example, on Sundays and holidays), and for informal meals for watching TV. It is the ceremonial function of the kitchen-dining room and distinguishes it from the usual kitchen with a dining table. For this reason, it is desirable to have a so-called breakfast table in the kitchen, after which it will be convenient to have a snack.

About how to plan and design a dining room, combined with a kitchen and / or living room in a city apartment or a private house, we will tell in this material. And still here you can spy on successful layouts and design ideas from a selection of 100 photo interiors of large and small, urban and cottage kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms and kitchens-dining rooms and lounges.

Planning and redevelopment

Option 1. Kitchen-dining room

Kitchen-dining room is possible on an area of ​​10 square meters. meters. If the kitchen is small (10-17 sq. M.), Then the spaciousness of the dining area will have to be provided by a compact headset, for example, angular or linear.

In the spacious kitchen-dining room (from 18 sq. M.) There is an opportunity to equip not only a spacious dining area, but also a bar counter, an island table or plan a super-comfortable U-shaped set as on this photo.

Option 2. Dining-living room

It does not mean uniting rooms, but functional zoning of an isolated living room, provided that it is spacious enough to accommodate both a sofa and a dining area. And with a tiny kitchen this variant of planning is the only possible way to have a full dinner table. So, for example, in this project the kitchen had an area of ​​only 4 square meters. m, so the living room became a place for both everyday and festive meals.

Of course, the dining-living room is not very suitable for daily meals (that's why a breakfast table is needed in the kitchen), but it's very nice to have homemade feasts and parties, to arrange cozy tea-parties. Also, the table in the living room can be used from time to time to work at the computer, needlework and other activities.

Option 3. Kitchen-dining room-living room

The unification of the kitchen, dining room and living room is especially important for small apartments, for example, hruschevok, stilenok, brezhnevok, etc. Here, a small kitchen (5-10 sq. M.) Can be combined with a living room, and a small dining room located on the border between two rooms or in a zone the former hall. As a result of this redevelopment, even a small space becomes visually more spacious, lighter and more convenient. True, in this case, the problem of lack of privacy is unavoidable. So, for example, a nap on the couch, while the rest of the inhabitants of the house are having supper, is unlikely to succeed. There are kitchen-dining room-living room and other shortcomings: a mess in one corner means a mess in the whole room, smells from the kitchen will walk and, perhaps, will impregnate the sofa cushions and upholstery.

Lighting

In the dining area, light plays a very important role - it will not be possible to create an atmosphere of coziness or a holiday without it. How should it be?

Of course, the design of lamps in a combined dining room, kitchen and living room should be subject to the same style and color scheme. At the same time, in the work area, the fixtures can look modest, and in the living room and dining room - elegantly.

In addition to the table and chairs, a buffet, a kredenka (curbstone) or a console for storing ceremonial dishes, cutlery, textiles and decor are traditionally located in the dining room area.
