What to do with 8 foot wall near dining room?
We are gut renovating in Feb/March.
I have an 8 foot wall that is a transition from our kitchen eating space into our dining room. Right now we have a bar sink (which we never use and are getting rid of) and some cabinetry there.
We use the counter area there as a wine/beverage serving station during parties. The phone is there now, so that area tends to collect paper/clutter (purses, DH's keys, etc), but we are thinking of moving the phone jack.
I am trying to come up with some design ideas that incorporate a full wall of lower storage (will need to put larger items, serving pieces there) in cabinets and maybe a three-drawer stack) but on the top I dont want just a boring wall of cabinets. Even with some glass doors on top, I am looking for something with some design interest.
I like the idea of some storage that is not irrevocable and is flexible in its use on top. Maybe some open shelving on top in the middle?
If any of you have a similar wall and can show me what you did, that would be really helpful.
