How to arrange the space..
few years back we bought 1930's 3 bed semi detached house in Nuneaton, UK. Originally ground floor had entrance hall with built-in cupboard, front lounge/sitting room, rear lounge/dining room and kitchen, that's how they use to build houses here.
And what I have to say it's all wrong, and we need to change something.
Living room problem.
After living few years we realized that living room is not big enough, it's from north side, not much light during day.. noise from the street..
also has got chimney breast which makes decorating problem even harder as we have one wall with bay window (radiator under window), other one with door, and wall which could be use full to put sofa next to it has got door next to it..
First thing we done was removing wall between kitchen and dining and making a bar, this works ok, more space more light in the kitchen but..
There is crazy idea in my mind to remove part of the wall between kitchen/dining and living room to put more light in to living room and make even more space. And here we have a problem how to arrange the space ? I was even thinking to move kitchen in to living room so we can make bigger living room with dinning something like a L-shape.
But even if we do that there is a problem how to put furniture in new kitchen with bay window and all this tiny spaces between walls and chimney breast, and where to place kitchen table, sofas in living room with all windows and french doors..
Any thoughts on how to manage the space ?
Thanks for any ideas you may have!
