The dining area combines kitchen and living area. Reduced in design, it still adds warm and inviting to the overall picture. Come guests, he shows himself from his generous side.

Maximum free space

The living and dining areas blend seamlessly into one another and cover a generous 43 square meters - enough space not to compete with each other. At right angles to the L-shaped floor plan, the rotatable wood-burning stove (gray circle) forms the visual pivot: thanks to its position, it can radiate heat to both areas of the room without any problem. From two sides, floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light, from which couch corner and dining area benefit.

Modern but cozy

The dining table is - with white seats on steel skids - stressed factual. The fact that it does not look too cool is due to the harmonious distribution of light and dark tones throughout the living area . For larger events, up to ten guests can sit at the table. By the way, with the different colored panel curtains one can not only control the incidence of light, but also very nicely change the room atmosphere.

Hospitality served

The joy of cooking and enjoying is undivided here: Only a cooking island separates the kitchen from the dining area. Plates and bowls are stacked visibly in their open shelf side - so comes a little restaurant flair on the blackboard. Practical side effect: The dishes are always at hand. An extractor hood disposes of the food odors. The table is set, the guests can come. And because the ash wood top is so beautiful, you do not have to hide it under a blanket. The wood grain fits perfectly into the color concept of natural shades, to which the silkscreened silk curtains form a tasteful frame. Linen table runners create islands for glasses, atmospheric tealights and a festive crystal chandelier.
