Zillow Advice: Home Improvement - Is a separate dining room more valued than a large, eat-in kitchen? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-a-separate-dining-room-more-valued-than-a-large-eat-in-kitchen/465850/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I live in Land Park, and ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-a-separate-dining-room-more-valued-than-a-large-eat-in-kitchen/465850/ I live in Land Park, and have extensive experience remodeling. You might even say it's a passion of mine. I'd say what you are considering is an excellent idea. What you don't want to do is eliminate the dining room area all together, but it sounds like it will be preserved through the space in the living room, which would certainly work. In fact, you could probably turn the entire living room into a dining room, unless it was the entrance to your home, and then that's not a very good &nbsp;idea.&nbsp;<br/><br/>I have a client who bought and fixed up a home in Land Park over by Vic's Ice Cream. He removed a wall and eliminated the dining room (didn't talk to me about it beforehand), and buyers were very upset by the fact there was no dining area. Even though they could have used one of the bedrooms, they were unhappy.
