We are (hopefully) on the cusp of moving to a Victorian semi. Downstairs there are four rooms; kitchen and day room(?) at the back, sitting room and dining room at the front. The front door is at the side of the house.
Next door have knocked together their two front rooms, but I've yet to invite myself in for a nosy .
None of the rooms are massive and I think it would be nice to have a bigger single space downstairs, so I'm wondering - which two rooms would be best knocked together?
Definitely knock the kitchen and day room into one big kitchen diner. Everyone these days likes a big kitchen diner, and for family living they're unbeatable. This was exactly our set up in our old house. I also like having a seperate front room/dining room or playroom, but that's just personal preference. By the way, what's to stop you knocking two walls down, so make the front room and dining room into one, and then make the other two into a kitchen diner?
Depends if you have to walk through any rooms to get through to others. I'd think a bigger kitchen would be better (what is a day room?) but if a room is only accessible through another one, that's probably a good candidate for a knock-through too.
