1. Lay a soft-edged ‘rug’If you have an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, it can help to subtly zone each area. Creating a tiled ‘rug’ under the table is one way to give the dining space its own identity.Here, plain white hexagons segue into patterned ones that link with the colour of the cabinetry. The six-sided tiles form a softer edge than linear ones would, for a more relaxed feel.
And here you can see a similar approach, where they have been used to define the dining area within a larger open-plan space.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Hmmm - I don't think I like the shelving over the nook as they've done it here. But should keep thinking about that as an option. The way the lighting is would create a problem I think. But if the shelving were higher and didn't create the closed in feeling that this area does then that could be nice.If the shelving were painted the same color as the wall, for example, that might be helpful.
