In the space adjacent to the kitchen, was previously a tiled family room (all open concept). Since we were getting rid of the tiny breakfast area in the kitchen and they wanted a larger dining room to entertain in, I suggested that we turn the space into a dining room. In a staging scenario, they could always change it up in the future.
BEFORE This family room was tiled, and had a very strange configuration. We couldnt change the thickness of the bulkhead because it vents the gas fireplace, but you'll see soon what I dreamed up for this space below (Photo by Century21).
The future dining room's tiled floor was removed.
We also had custom california shutters installed to create a clean look.
