Need help for my dining room
carmentineMay 20, 2013
I have a small dining room, completely open to kitchen and living room. Looking to have custom cabinets for storage of china/glassware/serve ware etc., yet still keep it roomy. Dimensions of room are 10.5' (L) x 9' (W). My current table is 38"x 64" with bench and 2 chairs. Had a larger table and china cabinet before but it was just too cramped. Could never walk around table or get to anything in china cabinet. If anyone wanted to sit in the back chairs had to pull table out. Would appreciate some suggestions on design of cabinets. Should I just do uppers? What's safe height so no one bumps head? If I do floor to ceiling what is the narrowest cabinets can be to look good and still provide storage for plates, etc. should also mention I may want to incorporate heat either in form of baseboard or built in to lower cabinets. Would love some design ideas.
