The hub of the home, the kitchen! I know our home life centers around the kitchen. I’m often cooking or cleaning while everyone else is seated around the island. I have no idea why we even have a dining room, it’s never used.
I can actually count on one hand how many times our dining room has been used since we built the cabin. And as the kids grow up and move on I see no reason for even having a dining room. We’re an eat in kitchen type of family. I’m by myself often, hubby is out of town on business and my son that’s still at home works full time and is in school full time.
So when It’s just me I either sit at the island and eat or I eat in my office at the computer while I work. If I could come up with an idea for turning our dining room into something other than what it is I’d be doing just that.
Because the cabin has such an open floor plan I just can’t seem to come up with another purpose for that room. We never use our living room either. Well I take that back we use it one month out of the year when family stays with us.
The views from our dining room are beautiful overlooking the pond and farmland as far as you can see. The fields are always littered with deer, turkeys, and an occasional coyote. I’d love to make use of the space if I could.
So tell me, do you have any brilliant ideas for transforming the dining room into usable space? I’m up for any ideas, just remember the open floor plan where the dining room, kitchen, and living room are all one big space.
Hit me with you best ideas, and even if you think there quirky I want to hear them.
