|The door now opens to the dining room and hallway|
Before we knocked down the wall our dining room was a dumping place and somewhere to park the pushchair. We ate in it once a year on Christmas day. We couldn't feed the kids in there on a day to day basis as I couldn't see them from the kitchen and all that nipping back and forth to fetch replacements for dropped forks, extra yogurts etc would have been exhausting!
Knocking down a single wall has been as effective as building an extension in giving us more living space and an awful lot cheaper. It's important to think about how to use the space we have effectively, whether it be by knocking down walls, rearranging furniture or using clever adaptable pieces as I think this film shows.
