Unlock the entire Houzz
I like the idea of using a console table as an extra space for eating.
I like the use of the island
Longer shelves could also be used in a closet for suitcases. When there are a ton of people visiting, a place for suitcases emptied or packed to be on a pull out shelf makes it easier for company and neater not to have them on the floor.
We like this idea in a home development in CO. Great use of space.
