My "formal" dining room is right next to my kitchen and the tables are about 7 feet apart in plain view of each other. The kitchen is mainly used for breakfast and the dining room for dinner, so I want to keep the dining room as a dining room, not change its purpose.
I am buying a new table and chairs for the dining room and probably the kitchen too. How can I coordinate the two of them? I'm not a matchy matchy person but I want the looks to be cohesive, including the light fixtures.
The kitchen table area is pretty small, maybe a small island instead of a table and match the chairs/stools? Or a pub height table?
