Kelly,newly single mom of four wonderful children.
Thanks for your input, everyone.
As of right now, we have a dining table in our kitchen that comfortably seats 6, with sufficient space to squeeze in 2 extra chairs as needed. We also have an island that seats 2.
Our LR has a 3-seater sofa, a 2-seater sofa, and an armchair, with some nice floor space too. So that's our immediate family covered. I just notice that it seems a bit squeezier when we have 6 adults to seat, rather than 2 adults + 4 kids, so I was wondering if there was a better way to do things.
But now I'm thinking that unless you have what I would consider a rather large house, or at least a larger than usual LR and / or kitchen, then 6 adults is always going to look a little bit squeezy in any one space...isn't it? :
I'm not expressing this very well but basically what I'm getting at is does a living room have to be able to seat an entire family at once?
|Ditto a kitchen. So do I make sure we can seat 6, or do I think ahead and try to seat 8 to allow for guests? Or just have extra seating in storage that we can bring out as needed.|
|And what about non-primary rooms such as the study, the landing cum reading corner etc... Do I focus on making those sanctuaries where people can escape for solitary pursuits or do I try to make them so they can accommodate as many people as possible?|
