    1. Hi E K Prakash,
      Thank you for contacting gharpedia & raising a query!
      Your living style & culture generally define your dining space. It varies culture to culture. Also, the dining space is usually decided by the size of your house, how big it is? If your house is very small, then you can accommodate your dining along the wall of your kitchen or in the passage area. Likewise, if your dining is big enough, you can have a special room adjacent to the kitchen.
      There is no any specific standard dimension for a space between kitchen & dining. It But yes, these both rooms (kitchen & dining) are planned adjacently, because activities of these rooms are connected to each other like from carrying food, serving food, cleaning utensils, washing hands, etc.
      Also note that the dining room should be located on the same floor with kitchen without any minor height differences, as it will be impractical and not adorable to carry hot food and utensils up & down.

      Points for Dining room design:
      A dining area is an important place where you can have the large get-together, family dinner & lunch, and other celebrations.
