HELP! Making do in a small really narrow combination LR & DR.
July 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The house is a small rental that the landlord will allow us to do whatever we want with it as long as he doesn't have to pay for it, The living room is long and narrow with dining room in the same room,Hubby's office is now in the dining room but will be moved soon to another spare bedroom, amen. I have a beautiful oak china cabinet thats now in the kitchen and a matching round dining room table and chairs that is now stored away that will be placed in the dining room once he moves the office out. I am out of ideas with this room with furniture arrangement and really wish I could get new furniture but right now is not the time so I have to work with what I already have.I cover the the LR furniture with sheets for now until I can afford fitted covers for it because I hate the dark blue color on it but it was given to us when we relocated here so I am grateful that at least we have a LR set. I am in the process of painting the walls a pale Jade, ceiling white and what windows I have I'm putting up Light bright sheers for more light. BUT I'm still lost on rearranging this entire area. Please help, any and all suggestions I would greatly appreciate.
