White brick, updated mantle and bar for the den
instead of removing a wall, create a large passthrough. Less work & mess and easier structure to build(between kitchen and dining room)
I love the idea of a short bookshelf to divide a room without closing it in. Plus, it gives you some display space on top! Great use of space!
cutout breakfast bar idea (without the built-in shelving in pic), just wide enough to fit 2 or 3 bar stools (likely half this size in width) So, basically a cutout level with the kitchen counter top (like pic) that juts out into the living room
