I do not know how to place my furniture in this akward room! I am having a hard time not filling up each wall with a shelf or picture and keep buying furniture to fill up the room. Its akward due to it being soo long and narrow. I feel like the wall space around the kitchen table is not being utilized. ive debated between a sitting area where the kitchen table is with bistro table on the other end under the black shelf OR a big dining table with hutch under black shelf OR removing black shelf all together. The problem Im having is there is a bar stool counter, we entertain for the holidays and getting too big of a table will take up half the room, putting it in the way of the hall entry to the kitchen. Im not married to how anything is done and am open to any suggestions as far as furniture placement, new purchases or burning the house down (j/k) Im trying to stay true to the rustic country feel but I have no idea, im no interior decorator.
