We created an open floor plan in our dated ranch home by removing the wall between the kitchen and living room.
Before we start weaving new flooring into the old flooring, there are a few areas that we want to change up. One of those areas is the half-wall between the kitchen and family room. We want to take the half-wall out to create a more open space between these two rooms. We love entertaining, so to make the house more open and user-friendly when there are lots of people over, this half-wall has to go!
Fewer walls and larger, combined rooms, are the trend in new homes because the home feels bigger and makes the best use of the space where people entertain and spend time with family and friends.
If you have an older home, you can join this trend to open up space between a kitchen and a living room.
