HOW TO CREATE A MODERN KITCHEN DINER THAT’S FIT FOR PURPOSE…

If you’re still living in a home that has a separate kitchen and dining room, you need to make the changes that’ll help you make better use of the space. That usually means creating a united kitchen diner. It makes the whole space feel much more open, but how do you go about creating a fully functional kitchen diner that’s going to be fit for purpose and aesthetically pleasing? That’s what we’re about to delve into, so read on.

CONNECT THE SPACE WITH YOUR GARDEN…

The great thing about having an open plan kitchen diner is that it allows you to connect the space to the garden too. You should make the most of this by having modern sliding glass doors in place. These can then open out into a patio area so that everyone in your family can eat on the patio when the weather is nice and you don’t necessarily want your dining space to be confined to the indoors.

CHOOSE A DURABLE AND SUITABLE FLOORING…

The flooring you choose in your dining room needs to feel suitable for both a kitchen and a dining context, so you probably don’t want a conventional carpet because that’s not really ideal for a kitchen. You will also want the flooring to be durable and so a stone or hard tile option could be what you need.

ZONE THE SPACE CAREFULLY…

Zoning the space is something that you will definitely need to do very carefully because it will dictate how you ultimately end up using the space. Make the wrong call and you could end up with a strange and dysfunctional space that doesn’t really meet the needs of your family, so dedicate plenty of planning and thought to this. You want the space to be appropriate, don’t you?

CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR THEME AND STICK TO IT THROUGHOUT…

It’s important to have consistency in terms of colour throughout your kitchen diner if you want it to look unified. Remember, you’re talking about one space now, not two. So you can’t have one design in the kitchen part and another entirely different one in the dining area; that would look ridiculous. You could choose white chairs and black tablecloths. That black and white aesthetic is very popular right now. But ultimately, it’s up to you.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE LIGHTING…

Natural light is really important in a dining space, so make sure you have as much of it as possible. But you should also try to make sure that you have decent artificial lighting for those long evenings when you’re entertaining in your dining space. Ensure your dining table is always lit up with a light source hanging above it if possible.

Kitchen diners are ideal for most people, especially families. It’s good to have that open space because you simply don’t need barriers between rooms anymore. It helps the space flow so much better, and it can also help the natural light to pour through the space without any unnecessary barriers.
