Now, I am on my 3rd blog for our happy home id e eas. Last time, we discussed about our exquisite choices of beautifully crafted chandelier for the living and dining areas, followed by minimalist concept for a living room.
On this blog, I am going to look for some ideas that we can apply for the dining room, together with the kitchen. You know, this place is actually critical for people like us who love to eat (that’s me!) and cook (that’s my husband hahah!). though I am not into cooking, I want these 2 areas to have a very a happy mood that you can enjoy the food even if it just a simple fried egg and bacon. All you have to do is to choose the right furniture, comfy chair and a table that is just the right size, everyone will be happy to stay for a while.
Our dining area is actually “disconnected” to the kitchen, meaning, there is wall between them. This is actually my husband’s idea which I also like, because we don’t want to extend the smell of every food that we are going to prepare. We prefer our kitchen to be closed although it is adjacent and accessible to the dining room. So you can cook everything, prepare everything, even clutter everything (but be careful with the sharp utensils, of course) without anyone seeing the mess.
The dining room however, is adjacent to an open lanai facing a well-trimmed landscape. Two purposes: to serve as a refreshing view, and a source of natural lighting. Our Architect, which is also a family friend designed it using a sliding glass door.
Anyhow, we already have some choices, we just need to choose the best one that will complement our personality (and budget, lolz!)
Here are some of our top picks:
