How many of you tore down walls and opened up spaces?
It seems to be a bit of a controversy sometimes, should old houses be updated and leave each room as is...or should walls be taken down and rooms opened to share space and light?
In the recent HGTV's Sarah's House, the old farmhouse was completely remodeled and spaces were changed and rooms rearranged...she even added on a whole new addition for the living room, bedrooms and bath. While I couldn't afford to do all that, there is a point to be made. How people lived then, is not always how people live today. We use spaces differently, like bigger kitchens and more bathrooms. Also, we have electronics...and need someplace to put them :)
I'm still in the planning stages, but I will definitely tear down some walls. The kitchen and dining room will be so much lighter and inviting, if the wall comes down. Also, thinking about taking down the wall between the living room and small bedroom to make that a bigger room for our main entertaining/TV space.
How many of you have done this? How many are thinking about it? How many wouldn't dare? Thank you for answering!
