Sitting Area above Front Entry
November 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have a space above our front entry, that is 6'x7'. We would like to turn this space into a sitting area. We plan to have the opening off of one of the smallest, upstairs bedroom, which we are using as a music room. To keep from taking up space with a door swing in the music room, we are going to hang a 15 panel French door, on a barn door track. Our dilemma is, how could we design this space without it being over crowded. We found a chair, that we would like to base our design around. We aren't sure if we want one or two chairs. We are going to cover the floor with oak flooring. And to keep the sun from fading the floor, what type of area rug would be appropriate for this small space? Round? Square? Rectangular? What type of side table/s, should we use? Any and all ideas are welcome. Thank you for all of your inspiring ideas.
