"Combination living and dining rooms are perfectly suited for the way we live today where open plan spaces tend to dominate in both new builds and existing home renovations. Clever furniture placement and accessorizing can help create flow in a mixed-use space, creating well defined but flexible zones for living and dining. Aiming for an equal amount of seating for living and dining will ensure that the room feels balanced, though you can feel free to change the ratio if you use the room more for one function or the other. Choosing a harmonious color palette and furniture that works well together without matching ensures a cohesive, stylish, livable overall design."
