Dining Room table right next to kitchen table

Uralmom's picture

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?I'm stumped!!

 Go according to Dawn. I think the #3 image will best suits for your kitchen. And of course the idea of moveable island cart is also good for kitchen. Now the decision is yours.

Their commendable work, together with the support of the school principal, co-teachers, parents and the rest has been fruitful and meaningful to their students, who are now facing a new challenge of furthering their skills in acquiring knowledge and using them to their own benefits.

Perfect designs. I love designing and decorating my home because I can have what I really want. The first thing we should consider in buying different kinds of furnitures are the quality and designs.

I like Dawn's idea of the kitchen nook.  If that can't work the island idea is good too.

 Hi, I prefer for Bar stools because it is more stylish and it gives rich look, several bar stools have swivel, so that you can adjust it.

Hi Uralmom, you might want to invest in an moveable island cart for the kitchen instead of having 2 sets of tables so close to each other. ImageImage
