Any advice greatly appreciated for this novice renovator! We have recently purchased a 1980’s home which is super dark and also has a very sectional layout. Currently our kitchen is in a little room of its own and so is the dining area. We would like to open up the kitchen/dining/living space (see the picture for our home layout) and create an open plan. We have a truss roof so removing walls won’t be too much a big deal (or so I’ve been told). One thing we foresee as a possible issue is that our bedroom is off the living space, so if we open up the space our bedroom becomes less private. Does anyone have any tips on how we could configure this space so that we could make our bedroom a little more private while enjoying open plan living . We’d also like to have an outdoor area coming off the back of the house with access through large bifolds or sliders.
