I love this idea! I am wanting extra space in my townhouse and had the idea of turnin my dining room into another living area. My living room is small as it is and I don't use my dining room. It is weird because you don't see designers saying "hey you don't have to have a dining room if you don't want it!"

MY townhouse is open concept/loft style upstairs as well. The kitchen is a galley kitchen and is in the back and its dark with the dinning room table in the way. So my solution as of an hour ago was too give myself a more "city space, "by placing

my table against the wall in the front by two large vertical windows so that I can enjoy breakfast with some sunshine :)

dividing the large living room with a sectional couch. I turned the dinning room into a reading area .

And of course lots of mirrors and artwork!
