Open floor plan - where to store stuff?
We are remodeling and removing some walls. I love the open concept design that we are working on. The kitchen is at one end, dining room in the middle, and great room at the other end with no walls separating the spaces. But I am struggling with where to store all the dining room "stuff". We currently have a sideboard with a hutch on top and a small under-the-stairs closet where I keep holiday sized serving dishes, grandma's silverware, tablecloths, wine glasses, etc. The new design doesn't have a wall where I can place the sideboard. because the foyer is on one side of the dining room, and there is a fabulous view out the back. My current sideboard doesn't have an attractive backside, LOL. But I have an idea that I could find one that would be like an island between the dining area and great room. Has anyone done this? I'm not finding pictures that show how it would look. Thanks!
