Hi Sir Eric,

I am also thinking the open space lay-out for my unit. But I still wanted a privacy. Do you think it is better if I will knocked down this wall divider to make my place looks bigger. And to still have a privacy, I wanted to have a sliding glass door divider.
Here’s the photo of my unit

I loathe my open floor plan. I'm looking for ways to make it less open. I wish I had proper layout with separate rooms (especially the kitchen) and a hallway connecting them.

If it's open, we want closed. If it's closed, we want open. If it's big we want small. If it's small we want big. Oy....LOL. I like walls so I can hang photos and bathrooms should always be separate! :)
