Small kitchen islands like this one are easier to relocate and move around. They can also serve multiple purposes. For example, this one could be a very nice side table or serving cart. If your kitchen island has a design that allows it to also be used as a table then putting wheels on it is that much more practical. You can easily move it around and sue as a dining table whenever you have guests coming over. Small kitchen islands give you the possibility of having more than one. In other words, instead of having one big island you can have two or three smaller ones and also use them individually whenever needed.
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
You can have the traditional set of dining room chairs, but give them an updated look. Plaid is a pattern that is back in fashion, and it looks lovely without losing its classic appeal when used in dining room chairs. Choose dining room chairs that are of a different shape to suit your room better. Round or oval shapes work wonderfully with round tables, plus these can be matched with other shapes in the room to create balance. Make the head of table chairs match each other, leaving the rest of the chairs in a different design. This is highly effective as an update to your chair set, plus it can help to evoke a certain mood you wish to achieve.
If you have designed your living space according to a laid-back, or even beach-inspired design, then you can make the dining room much more casual with the addition of neutral tones as well as wicker chairs. This is the perfect spot to enjoy meals and family time, no black tie required! Dining chairs are a good way to integrate proportion or contrast in the room. Choose chairs that come in different heights to create an interesting layout. Taller end chairs can have an extra function: they help to fill the space in a large room, while creating visual flow with their shorter counterparts.
