Eliminating a door from the kitchen to the dinning room.

We are currently remodeling the kitchen and in order to have continuous flow in the kitchen due to a bulkhead being in the way we are contemplating eliminating the door.

For us, we hardly use the dinning room, hence the passage is hardly used. This is a direct passage and there isn't a kitchen gangway. This being said will this hurt future resale?

The following is a picture of the existing kitchen (that is on it's way out). The doorway is to the left of the fridge.

Thoughts?

I don't think this will hurt your resale if it is a better use of space. I assume when you say removal you are putting a wall in place of the door.

If you do remove the entry, I recommend putting the refrigerator or a desk/work station it that space rather than cabinetry so a new owner could easily restore the doorway.

Thanks for the great suggestions. The doorway has officially been eliminated in the plans.
