Daytona Beach Homes: Casual Dining Spaces You Love

If cooking is your passion, then the approaching holiday season is when the magic happens. Dinner parties, family feasts, and cookie exchanges all call for a comfy, personal entertaining space where you can do it all with ease.

However, you don’t need to have an extravagant dining room table to serve as the backdrop for seasonal festivities—in fact, casual spots from your kitchen island to a cozy breakfast nook work just as well! In today’s blog, we will be looking at smart design solutions for those casual dining spaces we all have in our homes.

For a kitchen bar…

Even small kitchens often have a handy bar perfect for easy entertaining, refreshments with friends or a casual family meal. You can make the most of your bar area by keeping decorations on the bar counter to a minimum—after all, you’ll want to save as much space as possible for plates and silverware! Instead, frame the space with small pieces of wall art or accent painting that can set the area apart without actually getting in the way of mealtime.

For a cozy breakfast nook…

A comfy, cozy breakfast nook instantly adds an element of warmth and family atmosphere to any space. Use warm upholstery in the nook seating itself so as to create a bright, friendly space to eat. It’s also smart to opt for patterned fabrics that won’t easily show wear, tear, and stains with time. Cap off your space with a simple vase of fresh flowers to complete the bright, cheery feel.

For an eat-in island…

If your kitchen island branches off to create an eating surface (or if it’s large enough for both food prep and family meals), take advantage of it! Casual family dining and dinner parties can extend into the kitchen when you add a few comfy dining chairs or a space-saving bench.

For a café table for two…

Want to keep your kitchen dining space light? A café table and chairs for two can help you accomplish that! Keep these pieces anchored to a wall so as to not get in the way of meal prep and other busy kitchen activities. This can be an easy spot for quick breakfasts, morning coffee or—once the holidays roll around—extra cookie decorating space!

We hope that today’s blog helps you bring world-class fun into the simple spaces in your home. Let us know what you’re serving up this season below!
