Help, no dining area!

3 months ago

My 1920s bungalow (Sunderland), doesn’t have any space to eat at a table. Often, we retreat to either the freezing/hot conservatory or the back garden and I run back and forth to the kitchen which is at the front.

The lounge works well, with furniture positioned facing the TV wall and garden. However it’s right in the middle of any plan to find a dining area perhaps from the 3rd bedroom (our study) or conservatory (if it were rebuilt as a proper room, dep upon cost and light?)

I’d love to open up the space but I don’t know where I would then place seating as the main route would be through the lounge.

Has anyone any ideas:

  • How the living rooms can be better organised to include an eating area?
  • Or an approx cost if the conservatory was rebuilt as a proper room 12x15ft? (N.E.England)
  • Which type of professionals would be best suited to any suggested plan?

Thank you
