Before...

I don't think I've lived anywhere with a dining room since leaving home.  Looking forward to being able to eat a meal sitting at a table and not having to balance a plate on my lap!  It also means that we will actually be able to invite people round for dinner.  And believe me, Diana has got a lot of tasty recipes!

As you can see from the photo, this room gets a lot of sunshine.  We were a bit worried that this would be affected by the kitchen extension we're planning on doing, but with the glass roof it shouldn't be a problem.  We're also going to put a large sliding door where the window is now so that we have the option of closing off the kitchen or keeping things open-plan.

After...

In the end we decided against the sliding door so now the whole house is open-plan from the lounge at the front to the kitchen at the back. 

 

 
 
The dining room is also one of the rooms that has been set up with the multi-room sound system and here you can see one of the two ceiling speakers that have been fitted.
