Don’t be afraid of placing furniture in front of window. If it’s not a bulky piece, and has an open bottom like this wheeled side table, it’ll work because natural light will still be able to flow into the room. The open cog-wheel on set of lamps also allow daylight to shine through. The beefy wood-plank dining table and bench work perfectly with the industrial side table and sisal rug.
This open plan dining room allows for easy transition between the kitchen and dining spaces, while exposed beam vaulted ceilings give the rooms a spacious look. Natural light streams through windows on both sides of the room, illuminating the dark brown dining table and chairs. A globe chandelier adds a modern touch.
A portion of the dining room wall was removed, opening the space up to the kitchen and making room for a new kitchen peninsula. The framed items in the corner gallery were found in the house and are from the former owner.
Glass balcony panels overlook the living room below and allow natural light from the transom windows to reach the dining room. Chrome base dining furniture gives the space a contemporary feel. The turquoise rug adds a rich pop of color.
Adjacent to the family kitchen, this arched breakfast nook with dramatic Craftsman-inspired windows has ample seating for four or more, thanks to a large window seat that does double duty as a banquette.
Industrial French doors at the end of this farmhouse dining room allow light to fill the gathering space. A farmhouse table surrounded by metal bistro chairs provides ample seating, while exposed bulbs encased in metal baskets create funky lighting.
Dramatic art and lighting steals the show in this clean, contemporary dining room. Windows on all sides of the space bring in loads of natural light and offer great views of the backyard. A dark wood dining table with a clean metal base is set off by four plush, yet spare chairs with midcentury styling.
An open concept kitchen flows seamlessly into this dining area, which features a long dining table and sleek dining chairs. Three pendants provide stylish lighting, and a large window offers stunning views.
