As open concept floor plans continue to be popular, designated formal dining rooms are becoming less common and, in some cases, unnecessary. While it seems dining rooms have become reserved for those few special holiday meals or even re-purposed altogether into home offices, kitchens have become the main, everyday place to sit down for a meal. Here are several ways to make the most of the kitchen eating space.

We’ve collected a few of our current favorites for summer styling…
For this Brentwood new construction home, we worked alongside our clients’ builder to make selections throughout the house, as well as selections for the exterior, before contruction began. In the kitchen and bathrooms, we selected tile, countertops, plumbing fixtures, and finishes to make each room unique. Light fixtures, paint colors, and trim accents were designated throughout as well. Each one of these touches personalized the clients’ home to fit their modern style.

We recently completed two side-by-side new construction homes in the Oak Hill area of Nashville. These homes were built by Hallmark Building Group, and we worked together to make them ready to sell upon completion. We enjoyed the challenge of making each house unique, with interesting style elements. In this process, we selected all interior and exterior finishes, plumbing and lighting fixtures, cabinetry and hardware, along with creating unique designs for the fireplace mantels and wet bars. One of the homes leans toward a contemporary aesthetic, and the other is more transitional.
