The location of a dining room depends on factors like the proximity to the living room, the kitchen, wash basin, etc. The east, south or west parts of the house are ideal locations. Preferably, the dining room should be near the kitchen to facilitate the easy carrying of the food. It should also be near the living room. In the United States, you have the dining room adjacent to the living room used only for dining with guests or on special occasions. For informal meals, a dinette is the space adjacent to the kitchen where meals are served. Today, most modest size flats don’t have enough room for an independent or solo dining room. What is done is they integrate the living area and dining area into one. They may have a space adjacent to the kitchen where small tables and chairs are placed. The space is called a breakfast nook. Or you can have a breakfast bar instead, often higher than the regular kitchen counter with bar stools.
The main focal point of a southwest dining room is the dining table. Wood is a perfect choice as well as painted wood with wrought iron accents. Depending on the size of your space available, the rule of thumb is to choose the chunkiest wood table your space allows. Dings and dents in the wood add character and also allow families who have children or entertain frequently to relax and enjoy time well spent in the room. Bench seating is a good choice as it will seat more people and looks so welcome in a rustic style southwestern hacienda.
