The dining area – as creative as good cooking
A dining area goes well with any kitchen. In open-plan layouts it links the living space with the cooking space. If it is accommodated within the kitchen itself, depending on the room size and arrangement it can take the form of a big table, part of the cooking or preparation island, an add-on table or a small foldout or foldaway table solution.
Cooking or preparation islands with an integral dining bar, add-on tables or dining counter attachments are really up to date. In combination with modern, comfortable seating they create a cosy, practical and visually appealing ambience.
Spacious dining areas for your kitchen
The size of the dining area naturally depends on the floor space in the room. A spacious dining area can be equipped with a table and chairs or benches in materials and colours to coordinate with the kitchen furniture or in a contrasting design to visually differentiate the kitchen and dining area. A mix of styles, colours and materials is definitely in order!
As well as freestanding dining tables there are various options for integrating the dining area directly into the kitchen. This is where planning expertise comes in. A counter or an extended worktop can be designed and used as both a working surface and a dining area. Whether as a conventional dining area or as a bar, a counter is suitable for both enclosed and open-plan kitchens, in the latter case forming the transition to the living area. As a bridge to the worktop or as part of a cooking or preparation island or an add-on or attachment for it, ideas of this kind go down well even in small kitchens.
