Expanding Your Kitchen into the Dining Room

The kitchen is the heart of the home and often times, the dining room is a space not fully utilized. If your home has a kitchen with an adjoining dining room, the opportunity exists to make the kitchen an expansive space that is fun and functional. Convert your kitchen and dining room into one and increase your storage and entertaining space. The first step usually requires removing a wall. Here are some ideas to get your inspiration started.

Getting Rid of the Dining Room to Expand the Kitchen

Expanding Your Kitchen into the Dining RoomThe homeowners here took full advantage of moving the dining room into the kitchen. They also used this opportunity to open up the entertaining space into the outdoors.  Notice how guests can observe the chefs while seated at the island or dining table.

Expanding Small Kitchen into Dining Room

Expanding Small Kitchen into Dining RoomMany older homes were constructed with a kitchen designed for one chef.  Todays kitchens are designed for the family with multiple chefs.  Add a kitchen island into the space originally designated for the dining room to add a prep space for another cook while increasing storage. Use the entire ceiling height for cabinetry storage space.  You can reach the items in the upper cabinets by using iMove shelving on the interior.

Turn Dining Room into Kitchen

Turning Your Dining Room into part of your Kitchen DesignIf your kitchen is crying for additional storage, consider utilizing the dining room to create a butler’s pantry.  A place that provides extra storage for china and glassware along with dry goods.  The extra prep space is welcomed during holiday baking activities and the extra storage allows you to keep a well-stocked pantry all year long.
