I’m in the middle of redoing my kitchen to be open to my siding room. My dining room is 14’ x13’ but is loosing a foot of space because of the countertop overhang. because of the bar I’m not sure where to put my dining room table. Do I move my chandelier? Can the chandelier not be centered?

Also I want to get new dining room furniture and that is more cohesive with my cabinets which are quarter sewn white oak. I have a large family and entertain often but also have three kids under the age of four so everything has to be really cleanable. My house is very traditional with some rustic elements but I want to try to add a younger vibe.

This is my butlers pantry which uses the same cabinets and backsplash we are using for the kitchen. We are waiting to a white countertop.

Old dining room chair and floor color

Curtains in the dining room.

I am planning on painting the kitchen white Chantilly lace and the bottom part of the dining room the same color.

would appreciate all suggestions.
