The dining room should no longer be a room only used for high days and holidays. Make your dining room more relevant with multitasking ideas. The modern dining room has evolved beyond its traditional purpose into a multitasking space that should work hard. No longer kept as a dusty little-used room for formal eating, the dining room in many houses needs to be reconsidered and remodelled to fit into modern life.
With so many of today’s householders opting for larger kitchens the amount of time spent in dining rooms lessens and, if the space is not optimized, they can become an irrelevant hangup of a bygone age. If diner parties and formal dining are still on your agenda you will obviously not want to sacrifice your best entertaining space. But for quieter times you may be surprised at the extent to which, with a bit of imagination and resourcefulness, you can use your dining room.
A great example of a modern dining space, this room has used discreet modular storage to achieve the most of the space. The space serves equally as a working area and entertaining space. The easy access to the garden means that rather than being a forgotten room, the dining space is constantly busy and relevant.
An extendable round dining table is a space saver for quiet days but can accommodate several more hungry mouths when entertaining. Both Loaf and Laura Ashley have classical looking round tables that add enduring elegance to a dining room. Square tables with dropped leaves are suitable for smaller dining rooms and serve as good desks. If you have a larger space Loaf’s Homer dining table extends from 180cm to a roomy 240cm with its hidden extendable leaf.
