Designers, I need your help...
We're having our contractor come in and finish some of the last major projects in our kitchen, namely floors, counters, vent hood hook up, etc. I've got to get my act together before they come. One area that I haven't been able to decide on is the area we call "The Pillar Island".
This area marries the kitchen to the family room. The plan is to have the load bearing pillars trimmed out in painted paneling and I want an overhang for seating. Even with a 15" overhang, there is plenty of space behind for walking.
I just can't decide what would look good. Should the overhang be straight or have a radius? Should it go all the way to the outer end of the pillar or be just to the inside? Be supported with brackets or a skirt and legs. I would love some input, inspirational photos, or anything really. We started demo 2.5 years (yes, years) ago and I seem to be out of ideas.
Thank you for your help,
