Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Indoor columns to foyer
If you dont add sofits to dining you will have a ceiling like this with columns. The room will not be defined.
You pick how far off the wall you want the raised portion of ceiling.
With out soffit your foyer will run into formal dining. Okay to run into greatroom.
The column on left is not as deep as wall and looks ok and the opening is cased. The right column will be stand alone.
coffer ceiling to closer to edge of room or further in?
Dining to foyer similar to yours.
Excuse color. But opening to dining.
7 ft fench door with taller openings into butlers pantry.
Door should be 3 ft with one ft on each side. Guessing 5 ft wide.
Guessing 6 foot doors.
Like the initial above paintings.
Doors look taller than 7 ft also. Guessing 2'8
Like these style legs on sorting bins.
They can wrap the wood around the short wall to give it the matching column look.
Shallow trey if you need to change height for drop down into dining.
Column on one end can surround wall and other be free standing.
