I love all the ideas, creativity, and amazing spaces shared on Offbeat Home, which is why when I had a "What exactly do I do with this space?" moment, I knew just who to ask. My husband, doggy, and I moved into a little rental built in 1928 recently. We love the quirks about this home, but are having trouble setting up a transitional space between the living room area and the kitchen.
It's supposed to be a formal dining room but meh. We want to turn it into a sitting room/extra living space but aren't sure how. We have an extra love seat in there so far and it just kind of looks awkward, like it needs something else.
How do we turn our pesky formal dining room into a bonus hangout space?
