Q: We're struggling with how to use and arrange the front room of our house. We definitely want to incorporate the dining room into this room, but it leaves a dead corner - and we're not sure what to do with it:
The room is the first room you walk through in our house after passing through a tiny entryway. We have a large farmhouse table which we use for lots of entertaining and a hutch to go with it as well. The dead corner was once where the former owners had a small dining table and then, in the place where our table is now, was a seating area.
The dining room connects to the kitchen of which you can see the window/cut out into this space in the pictures. It's a natural place for folks to stand and talk during parties. The side table with pictures lines the stairway. We're not set on the placement of any of the furniture and are open and looking to incorporate additional uses into this room. Also looking for ideas on how to give it a more finished and lived in look.
