Dining Room Flair

Eight beautiful examples of what a dining room can be.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Let the Sunshine In

      This dining room addition is all about natural light and the indoor-outdoor connection with the backyard. Unusual three-pane sliding glass doors offer unobstructed views from the dining room table and easy access to the outdoors.

    • Arts and Crafts Style

      Period-style wainscoting, matching wood trim, and complementary dining room furniture impart a classic Arts and Crafts style to this remodeled ranch house. A period-style light fixture completes the picture.

    • Lofty Look

      Exposed ceiling beams and pipes lend an industrial feel to the dining room in this remodeled loft. Built-in bookcases on either side of the chimney take advantage of the room's height. Extra tall windows keep the space bright and sunny.

    • Enclosed Porch

      Once a sun porch, this space was enclosed to create an intimate dining room. Natural light from high-placed windows, a brick-arch pass-through window, neutral color paint, and white trim all contribute to the cozy atmosphere. Wide baseboards and detailed cove moldings are a good way to give a room architectural character and visual interest.

    • Open to French Doors

      French doors transformed what once was little more than a pass-through space into a charming dining room in this cottage-style home. The interior French doors separate the dining area from a sunroom; the exterior doors lead to a deck overlooking a wooded backyard.

    • Classy Construction

      Columns offer accent, weight, and structure while highlighting the classy and sleek style of this dining room and blend it with the living room just beyond. Wheelchair-accessible construction created passages wide enough to accommodate the homeowner.

    • Full Exposure

      A wall of French doors was added to this dining room to lighten the dark and narrow space and bring in outdoor scenes. Ceiling beams help break the living space and add detail to the tall ceilings.

    • Gathering Place

      A simple paneled fireplace with a window seat on either side forms a casual gathering place combined with a dining room in the addition to this house. The white trim and light walls contrast with the dark window treatments, hardwood floors, fireplace, and stately dining room furniture, creating a cozy but elegant style.
