Eight beautiful examples of what a dining room can be.
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.
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.
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.
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.
