Working On A Breakfast Nook

My customer has a cottage that has one long room stretched across the lakeside of the house. From living room to dinning room overlooking the water.

I want to alter the original floor plan and take it from two living spaces to four social spaces all under one ceiling. 


The kitchen is the fifth wheel of this main floor area. The room is anchored by a stone fireplace at one end, two large windows and a door going out to a porch along the lakeside. The opposite end of the room was where the  former owners had their dinning table.

So far the sofa and chairs have been grouped around the fireplace. We then set the long dinning table from the kitchen to the door leading out to the porch over looking the waterside.

So at the far end of this room we will create a small breakfast nook directly off the kitchen. Small, cozy and easy to slide in and out of and spread the newspaper out on Sundays! On the same wall, overlooking the lake, will be a small conversation corner with a desk and a chair for computer/work from home, related activities. Or maybe just a space to occupy for a brief moment of time.

This will be a fun family home when all is said and done!

Have a nice Sunday.
