Kitchen and Dining Furniture
Only add useful items
Don’t just fill your kitchen or dining room with unnecessary furniture. Every item that goes in here should fulfill a clear purpose.
Get more seating than you need
Think of the future by choosing a table that seats more than you need. This will help you to arrange parties or cope with a growing family.
Create a focal point
Choose a focal point where people meet to talk and eat at any time of the day. This can be a table, sofa, or breakfast bar.
Add dining room talking points
Make your dining room more interesting by adding talking points. This can be an interesting display cabinet, for example.
Don’t make it too crowded
Avoid the common mistake of making these rooms too busy. It is important to leave space to get around safely while carrying hot food or tools.
