Spending more dinners at home? When you have a beautiful, custom-crafted dining space and kitchen, every meal feels like a special occasion! Just read on for a few fun ways to design a dining space the whole family will enjoy, this summer and all year long.
Ample seating options for every meal
Who says you have to rely solely upon one dining room table for mealtimes? Built-in bars by the kitchen allow family and friends to enjoy casual snacking or drinks without the need to sit down for a formal meal. You may also choose to implement a beautiful breakfast nook overlooking the backyard, pool or golf course, depending on your unique home layout.
Know your family
No one knows your family better than you! A number of factors (like family size, mealtime habits, and whether your home is a permanent residence or a vacation property) will determine your ideal kitchen and dining layout. Perhaps you forego a formal dining space for a larger living room, or center your family’s meals around the kitchen itself for a breezy experience. You might even swap traditional dining room chairs for a cottage-style bench or booth! Whatever your preferences may be, your Vanacore home can help you embrace them to the fullest extent of style and function.
Showcase a beautiful view
Just like you might enjoy at your favorite restaurant, a view can make your meal that much better! When designing your custom home, consider framing your outdoor space (whether that be a gorgeous golf course view or splashing pool vista) with a picture window perfect for inspiring every meal to follow.
Craft a collaborative kitchen
Looking for ways to involve the family more in mealtime fun? A spacious island and ample square footage in your kitchen are features that lend themselves to collaboration and cooking fun!
Light your space with decorative flair
A decorative light fixture can help define your dining space, which is especially helpful when working with larger great rooms. Opt for a stylish chandelier or accent sconce for a decorative edge your family and friends are sure to enjoy, meal after meal.
We hope these ideas help you design a dining space that lends flavorful flair to every meal! If you don’t yet have a custom home of your own, be sure to contact Vanacore Homes today to get started on the kitchen (and home) you’ve been dreaming of.
