Open Floor Plan vs. Formal Dining Room
I might be out of the loop, so I'm taking a quick opinion survey.
My friend wants to take out the wall between her small kitchen and her formal dining room (which is a decent, but not huge size). This will pretty much make the area an eat-in kitchen.
It used to be that a formal dining room added value, but today, when people like open floor plans, would opening it up NOT hurt the home's resale value?
What do you think?
