As much as I love the open plan, it can make it difficult to decorate. Before I permanently moved into our home, I bought an antique farm table that was 7' long. I put it next to a long window next to the kitchen. Since I remodeled the kitchen, the kitchen became long and narrow and the long table only emphasized the galley dimensions. I got rid of that table and replaced it with a round table (40") with 4 chairs. I moved it more towards the center of that space and it looks wonderful. So #8 is a good suggestion!

I really like where hexagonal pattern meets the timber floor. This is one we did for a commercial project, however we are getting requests mainly from homeowners looking for a creative ways to merge the kitchen with their open plan dining rooms. Great article.
