do not like the tv placement and the dining area placement. also do not like the wrap around counter and 2 bar stool areas. overkill.
I love the open concept idea and the flow, the color of the wood, and the ceiling design. I do not like the random section of dark countertop. And I don't like the strange seating in front of the tv -- it looks like a fortune cookie. Do you need/want more space in the area for two comfy chairs? I would also do just one floor and not break up the space with two materials. And the food on the walls is strange and restaurant-like.
i think the layout has good flow provides lots of seating options.
I really like the look of this design but don't think it functions all that well. Living area has practically no seating, don't think you can see the tv when working in the kitchen and while there are lots of counter stools, don't think I'd want to sit on them for long.
