If you are in the market for a new table to dine on but live in a - shall we say - space challenged area, dinettes are an excellent choice. If you like the modern or contemporary look then a contemporary dinette set might be just what you need. Today's designers and manufacturers offer an amazing variety of different sizes styles colors that are excellent solutions whether you live in a small apartment or are trying to decorate a new starter home. Contemporary art is the art produced sometime since Word War II. It is then one art that shaped modern history. They are the kind of art that overcome historical changes - it is the art that lasted through the years. It is constant to the very core and that explains why contemporary is constantly evolving. Designs come and go and what was once popular 30 years ago becomes popular again. Contemporary for this time period may be an antique for your children and contemporary again for your grandchildren - who knows.
Generally thought to be comprised of a small table and either two or four chairs, dinette sets are made to fit into a small kitchen or breakfast nook. Suitable for a quick lunch or breakfast for two to four people, they are very functional where space is at a premium. When thinking of dinette sets, your mind may immediately go to the style of dining table popular in the 50's and 60's. These are still out there and going strong. Usually made with metal legs on the chairs and table, the tops today are a vinyl laminate with vinyl chair seats. These sets are generally available in bright colors such as red, yellow, or even black.
Lighting is important in a nook area. Some nook areas look like an old pantry tucked away is a tiny room just off the kitchen, while others are open to the kitchen. In the tiny rooms, consider light, airy colors, track lighting or an antique chandelier. Also think about adding personal artwork to the space. If it is eastern facing, all the better to catch the morning sunlight, but the added electrical lighting will be nice on the gray and gloomy days. Consider other times of the day this space may be used. Homework time so the kids have a dedicated space to work in while being in close reach of a study-break snack, a reading area away from televisions, a place to draw or color, etc., then pick the appropriate lighting for those other needs.
