1930’s semi - best open plan layout for kitchen/diner or all open?

7 years ago

Our house is a 1930’s semi detached with an already extended kitchen. We currently have a living room, dining room and kitchen layout but are considering opening up the entire downstairs to have one big living/dining/kitchen space. Either that, or we open up the kitchen and dining room, but I’d like to have sofa/seat connected to where we eat/kids can do homework etc hence the idea to go all open plan. We currently don’t have a downstairs toilet and would like to add one (possibly under the stairs). The garage is used as a utility area with plumbing for washing machine and a condenser dryer. We store lots of stuff like bikes in the garage too. I was thinking of halving the garage with the front of it as a store and the back half as a proper utility/downstairs toilet area. I have no idea about steels, fire doors etc and there are probably a lot smarter ways to do this open plan thing, so any ideas are gratefully accepted! We can’t extend further out into the tiny garden.
