Need help...diy new home construction...dining room delima
December 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Originally I planned on having the formal dining room in an open area next to the entry, but then my father gave us a beautiful set of custom double entry doors, which may make the area to narrow for a nice size dining table...the entry area is 16' wide x 15' deep but the doors are 37" x 2 plus the frame so we are figuring about 81" total taken out for the door area, which leaves a little over 9' for the dining room width...seems to narrow to me??? What are your thoughts? The entry steps into a nice size 20' x 20' living room so I may can arrange that area to hold living room furniture and dining table, and just make the entry way more open, Any thoughts??? I am attaching a rough picture so you can make more sense of the dilemma. Thank you for any help!
