Space dilemma in kitchen and dinning room
We took the wall between the kitchen and dinning room to put a hi-low counter on the kitchen side. Put high stools for the kids to eat on the dinning room side. See pic 1. The counter will be above the window in the kitchen.
Option 1 is to put the counter at the kitchen side. To prevent the counter block the window, We plan to leave a little space between them, then it may look odd.
Option 2 is put the counter between the two windows, the counter would take up dinning room space, which will make the dinning room
small. See pic 2, there will be 100 inches left for the dinning area. On the other hand, we will have much bigger kitchen.
Should we go with option 1 or 2? Thanks for any suggestion.
