Don't know what to do with my dining area
April 16, 2014
I have a space in my condo which i can turn into a dining area. The space is narrow and doesn't have a lot of light coming into it. I have an idea of what i want to do but not sure if it's the right thing to do. I am thinking of putting an L shaped wooden bench against the walls that has the paintings on them which will be accompanied by a wooden table with metal legs for the dining table. The color of the wood I was originally thinking of using was a dark walnut color but after thinking about it, maybe having such a dark color would make that small narrow space look even smaller. So I am now considering a lighter finish like maybe oak. Or should I not even use wood. I am also now contemplating using a glass table instead so that the place looks more open and brighter. The only problem is that it will not go with the rest of the condo design because it's mainly wood themed. By the way, please ignore the white cabinet at the end of the hall as that has been removed. All feedback are most welcome. Thanks in advance.... oh dear don't know why the pix uploaded horizontally... sorry.
