Recommendations to close the passthru - This is exactly what I have at home, but we would like to close the passthru with glass, that way the kitchen will not be too dark and the dining room will not look too small. Any ideas of cool, modern, unique windows/glass? »
Wall opening - I tried so desperately to do this in my remodel!
The architect told me that because the opening would be in a load bearing wall, I could not do it without going thru a lot of support work below and above and it was expensive, 10-12K.
I also tried maybe just opening a small door, same answer
My kitchen does the boxy feeling but because of cost, I cannot do. We did expand the den out which makes it huge and if we could have done the work on the wall, it would look magnificent.
If anything I learned is to ask everything from a good architect so you can budget your costs and get what you want. I'm so disappointed that I could not do it
Question: What alternative (s) do you suggest? »
