The New "Dining" RoomBack to Home Idea Articles
The dining room has really changed. Today, many homes feature open floor plans, and there is no "dining room" anymore. The big open area that is home to the kitchen and eating area is where we have most of our meals. Some kitchens now have sitting areas with fireplaces and bars and to find a table is tough. Life has become very casual. Comfort and efficiency, the ease of maintenance is the way of life now.
Casual dining creates a cozier, more intimate atmosphere. One of the most successful "new" dining ideas has been the gathering table - tables that are higher off the ground and have pub stools or barstools as the chairs. Our gathering tables come in all different woods and designs, from art deco to sleek contemporary to casual to traditional. The gathering table has for our customers become the focal point in their kitchen or eating area. Of course you eat there, but you also play games there, do homework there, or just converse there. The extra height of the chairs is great too.
Some of our more casual dining sets have beautiful beveled glass tops, or granite tops, most have lovely wood tops with beautiful patterns in the wood. They all have great chairs and some have benches. That has been a big hit! Kids love benches! Many of these sets have baker's racks or sideboards and most have barstools. The beauty of a casual dinette is that it can be dressed up with decorative linens and tableware, or throw some placemats on it and enjoy its informal style. We use these in many of our condominium projects.
Of course, we have tables for a more formal application too, along with the matching china’s, buffets, and sideboards. These groups are very elegant without breaking the bank. Everyone loves the look of formal dining.
