Ground floor layout help

Adam CJ
last month

Hi, we’re buying a house that’s, as estate agents like to put it, ‘in need of modernisation’, and struggling to decide what to do with the ground floor layout. Currently there is one big reception room that goes from front to back, a small hallway and a small galley kitchen. I’d like more kitchen space and the idea of knocking through the kitchen wall appeals to me, but:

  • I’m not sure how well having one big open space downstairs will work
  • In the longer term we’d like to extend into the garden, but won’t have the funds to do that for a while so trying to think of changes we can make in the short term that won’t end up needing to be completely redone when we do extend

Would love to hear your advice/ideas! This is the current floorplan
