Informal dining room. Location and size?
We are in the preliminary design stage with our architect.
Right now we have 3 eating spaces...our island, breakfast room, and formal dining room (which is rarely used).
I have always had a formal dining room. I do not want a formal dining room in the new house. I do want an informal dining space large enough to accommodate a large farm table and an extra table if necessary during holiday entertaining. On the other hand I do not want the space to be so large that it is cold and uncozy (for lack of a better word) for everyday dining.
Please share the size...dimensions...of your space.
Is it between the kitchen and great room? Is it at the back of the house? I guess I would really love to see this part of your plan if you are really pleased with it.
Example...look at the pic I posted. This is something I really like. I have no idea about dimensions. This dining area is 14x14. I doubt that it is large enough if it is the only dining space. But, how large should a space like this be?
I know there is a thread similar to this and I have spent hours on Houzz. I really want to know what you have done.
