Create the perfect dining area for your home

The kitchen is often considered to be at the heart of the home. However, with the unyielding demands of modern life and an unhealthy screen time on our digital devices, the dining area is increasingly overlooked. Traditionally, a separate room is cordoned off to create a formal dining room, disconnected from the soul of the home – the kitchen and the living room. With open plan living becoming widely sought-after and homeowners downsizing to homes with smaller footprints, the dining area has evolved to become an integral part of multi-functional living.
Here, we’ll share some ideas to make your dining area the perfect centrepiece of your modern home.

1. Understand your lifestyle and the layout of your home

Understanding the synergy between your lifestyle and the layout of your home is important in creating the perfect dining area. It should serve as a social function of being the cornerstone of your home where people come together. For those with a compact space, designing a built-in table and bench may be ideal so that it works around the confinements of the space.

For open plan spaces, a dining table should be considered by its form and function so that it neither overwhelms the space nor undermines its presence. King living’s newest addition, the Issho Dining Table is crafted in such a way that allows for great formation flexibility, with a series of repeated ‘fins’ that form a sculptural base both distinctively beautiful and functional.

Besides serving the sole purpose of dining, it’s important to take into account how you would like to spend time at the table, from working from home to transforming it into a classroom for your children. The dining area should be well-lit, inviting and comfortable to spend time.


2. Take comfort in the perfect dining chairs

Investing in the perfect dining chairs should be one of the greatest investments you can make for your dining space. For a space where you’ll be spending a lot of your time, it’s essential that you have chairs that can afford you the comfort you deserve. These will be pieces that you be interacting with on a daily basis for years to come, and so ultimately you would want them to last.

The graceful form and luxurious comfort of the Quay Dining Chairs will bring understate elegance to any dining room. The fluid curves will wrap your body comfortably, providing both back and arm support for those long hours of work if needed. Consider a range of King Living’s premium and luxurious leathers to provide the utmost comfort and practicality. Integrate with the KingGuard+, to help you protect and preserve your chairs for years to come.


3. A sight to behold

With a large surface area, the dining table offers a large canvas for you to unleash your creativity. By adding plants and fruits, you’ll be able to bring life and personality to the dining room. Consider a variety of sizes and shapes for your vases and keep them in odd numbers as they work best visually.
Vignettes are a clever alternative for those who have a smaller sized dining table or regularly needs to clear their table decorations to make way for meals. A beautiful vignette works best if you place careful consideration into the items you need daily and select them beautifully. Anchor your herbs and spices with a sleek wooden or marble board. Not only will these save you time by having the things you need already on the table, but they help form wonderful presentations for your dining table.
