    That's a beautiful table! Looks vintage or faux vintage to me. I wonder if we could recreate something like that for you? The design itself would be no problem. But finishing wise, it looks like the table was probably polished at one time or other and has either not been polished in years or has been sanded right back to get this look. Sometimes it isn't easy to reproduce a finish that only time can give!

Amanda Pollard added this to How to Add Overflow Kitchen Storage to an Open-plan Space2 Oct 2018

Build a dividerIn this large space, the designers have created a nifty piece of furniture that does two jobs in one. Not only does it beautifully divide the dining area from the seating zone, it also incorporates masses of extra storage.The owners can use the internal shelves for glassware, tableware and any other pieces that won’t fit in the kitchen.

Combine a screen and storageIn this open-plan space, the designers have created an intimate living room area by separating it from the dining zone with a piece of joinery. Rather than leave it as a simple screen, they’ve utilised the space by stashing storage inside. The wide screen opens up with a sliding door to reveal plenty of shelving for tableware and books.

Won’t I just lose a lot of wall space?One of the main reasons to involve an architect or designer in your project is to help you define your criteria and come up with imaginative ways of providing the ideal balance between the aspects you’ll lose, such as storage space, and those you’ll gain, such as a bright, flexible living area. They’ll have ideas to combat your concerns, such as how to include cupboards or open shelves into the new layout. In this example, the problem of losing storage but also having an open layout was solved by creating a partition to provide some zoning and shelving.Check out 7 genius tips from 2017’s most popular open-plan stories

What other issues do I need to consider?When opening up your spaces, don’t forget to think about sound, smell, tidiness and privacy. If you’re connecting your kitchen to the living room, for instance, consider how you’ll deal with cooking smells. Similarly, if you’re messy, then your chaotic kitchen or cluttered living room will no longer be hidden from public view, and your guilty secret will be exposed!Sound and privacy are also very important matters to bear in mind, especially if you have children, entertain a lot or like you own personal space. The good news is that all of these scenarios can be overcome with design solutions if they’re given the proper consideration and are planned for in advance.Is it over for open-plan kitchens?
