For others it is a matter of saving space, when in one large room not only the kitchen and dining room but also the living room are combined. The popularity of studio apartments in this case played an important role in the growth of demand for the organization of the dining segment in the kitchen. In this publication, we would like to provide you with a wide range of design projects of kitchen-dining rooms of different sizes, ways of planning, stylistic and color solutions. We hope that a large selection of interiors will allow you to find inspiration for decorating the kitchen-dining room of your dreams.
Determine the layout of the kitchen area
The most popular for dining organizationZones in the kitchen are options for linear (in one row) and angular (L-shaped) layout. This is not surprising, because it is with the arrangement of storage systems, household appliances and work surfaces along one wall or with a small perpendicular branch, there is the maximum possible amount of useful space for the installation of the dining group. In very spacious rooms with a large window or a walk-through structure, you can find a parallel layout of the furniture set and a dining area in the kitchen-dining room
Linear layout - an ideal option for arranging a dining area in the kitchen
Having a kitchen set along justOne wall, we save the useful area of the kitchen. To install a spacious dining table and chairs, there is room even in medium sized kitchens, not to mention spacious kitchens that can be boasted by country houses or private households located within the city.
If you think that with a single-row layoutCan not accommodate too few storage systems, that most of the space of the working area is occupied by household appliances - take a look at the option of decorating the kitchen-dining room in the photo. The built-in storage system, which is located from floor to ceiling and around the doorway, will provide you with the possibility of storing not only all the necessary kitchen utensils, but also items from other vital segments of your home.
In rooms with high ceilings and largeWindows often are not possible to place the top tier of kitchen cabinets. Partly this situation can be solved with the help of open shelves for dishes and other kitchen attributes located between the windows. In the design project presented in the photo, the storage issue was solved by installing an additional level to organize a capacious pantry. Thus, it was possible to provide the kitchen with not only a dining area and the placement of all necessary household appliances, but also create an extensive storage system.
Lack of storage systems or space forIntegration of household appliances in single-row layout of kitchen furniture, can be replenished with the help of the island. In the working surface of the kitchen island, you can build a hob or sink. On the inside, place retractable or folding storage boxes, and extend the outside with the help of a countertop to organize a place for breakfast and other short meals.
L-shaped layout for the kitchen-dining room
With the angular arrangement of the furniture setWorking area of the kitchen, in a medium-sized room (from 8 sq m), there is enough space to install a small dining table with a capacity of 4-6 people.
Angular planning can only becomeA practical option for building a kitchen set in a room that itself is in the form of the letter "G". In this case, there is no need for zoning of space into the working and dining segments, the room itself performs this function.
Parallel layout in the kitchen with dining segment
In the spacious rooms of the kitchens of country housesEnough space to arrange the kitchen set in parallel in two rows, and in the center of the room to install a spacious dining table with the original stools. For a walk-through room or a room with a large window in the center of one of the walls - this is an ideal option for placing not only an extensive storage system, but also work surfaces and household appliances.
With a parallel layout of the kitchen ensembleStorage systems, household appliances and work surfaces, you can refuse to install a dining area in the center of the room, in favor of an alternative location of the kitchen island, and transfer the table segment to a corner with partial placement in a soft zone.
A cozy corner in the kitchen-dining room - a comfortable dining area
Arrangement of a soft corner in the kitchen- an excellent opportunity to organize a dining area with comfort. A good place for a soft zone of the dining group is the bay window. Making soft seating in the shape of a bay window, you not only rationally equip the available space, but also get the opportunity to spend meals with the whole family at the window, admiring a beautiful view of the nature of your own yard or the territory adjacent to the house.
A soft corner can be a continuation of the kitchenHeadset, so you can not only create a harmonious atmosphere in the kitchen-dining room, but also arrange furniture in a narrow and long room. If you push aside the dining table, then the soft seats near the window can be used as a reading corner.
In rooms with complex geometry it is necessaryUse all available space in the most rational way. In the asymmetric bay window you can install a dining area, part of which will be a soft corner. Snow-white decoration and light furnishings of the room for cooking and meals will "smooth" the imperfection of the room shapes and design features.
In order to slightly flatten the geometrySquare or rectangular bay window and a soft corner located in it, set a round or oval dining table. The unusual design of the table diversifies the interior and decorates the situation, and the use of a light palette of bay window decoration and glass surfaces will create an easy and unconstrained appearance of the dining area.
Spacious kitchen - a large soft corner. Located at the window a roomy soft area with a dining table attached to it, created a comfortable and original dining area.
We attach a dining group to the kitchen island
To save space in the kitchen,The center of which is the island, you can add to its end a dining area in the form of a small dining table and several chairs. By fixing the table top of the dining table to the wall of the island, you release the space for the feet of the household from the two furniture legs.
