Planning your kitchen (link)
There are some useful ideas on this HGTV website: Kitchen Design: 12 Great Floor Plans : Decorating : Home & Garden Television . There are other links and ideas, including one where the designer uses elegant curtains to separate the dining room from the den. (Some of today's open floor plans are too open.) You can use other visual barriers to separate different living zones. We added colonnades with bookcases in our home to separate the living room from the library and the dining room (far end) from the library. Yet the flow and feel is still open and the light is not blocked. Plus we've got storage and display space.
