What Houzz contributors are saying:
How much will it cost? The cost of removing a wall can vary significantly. The first determining factor will be how much load it’s carrying – the more of the house it’s holding up, the more expensive the new support structure will be. Also, your choice of support materials will affect the price.Then there are factors such as: do you need to relocate radiators, light switches, electrical sockets and wall lights? Finally, of course, comes the cost of making good and redecorating: will you need to do the whole room or just the area affected by the changes? These variables can be ironed out at the start if you get plans drawn up and a simple outline breakdown of works prepared for the builder to quote against.

Dividing a large room into smaller, snugger lounging zones could be an option if this is your issue. Here, a well-placed TV and fireplace wall does the trick perfectly.Explore more wonderful ways to keep cosy in your home
