Trying to assess renovation layout options, would love some input

4 years ago

We have a great 50's ranch that has been added to a couple of times, and we're considering making an investment in it for the long haul.

This is the current layout. We need to:

- renovate baths 2 & 3, which are original.

- replace the front windows, which are original

- open up the layout to get more light into the dining room

This is the closest design I have right now, although I've asked that they close up the entry walls to the back hallway and dining room, as I think it helps define the entry and improve privacy for Bed 2.

One thing we're a bit worried about is losing cosiness. I see some of these opened-up ranches and they seem kind of austere and...TOO open. The other thing to keep in mind is that we use both living areas - one for kids and the other for adults. (We need 2 living areas.)
