The walls are coming down! Expanded spaces and open floor plans are very much in demand these days. Newer homes are built with this thought in mind, and older homes are being reconfigured and redeveloped so that they too can have this open feel. Even small Colonial and Cape style houses can have an open floor plan. As long as weight is redistributed properly, load-bearing walls can easily be removed. For many this is ideal. Not only does this open up the home, making it feel larger, but for those with young families, some feel it’s easier to keep tabs on everyone without having to be in the same room. Homes with open floor plans are hot commodities in the real estate market, in fact, Realtors often promote their listings as having an “open floor plan” to create interest among buyers. This isn’t, however, the case for every home.
It’s all about height. Although you are going with a mismatched set, there is one area that you should match and that is height. Making sure that your chairs are the correct height to your dining room table is the best way to make your mismatched dining room style to work. If the chairs are too short, they will look off, too tall and you won’t be able to sit at the table comfortably.
Don’t forget the storage: The ability for sideboards to have incredible storage may be their best hidden secret! Sideboards will typically have doors to hide drawers or shelves behind. Use this area for seasonal table settings, table linens, candles, and other accessories that don’t always need to be on display. The sideboard storage area is an ideal place to house matches, and candle lighters – so you don’t have to go hunting for them at a dinner party! For dining rooms that need additional storage, consider hanging complimentary wall shelving above the sideboard. Use for storing and displaying family heirlooms and vintage dining room accessories as well.
