Here's the deal:
We moved into a house 6 weeks ago that needs some major remodeling. We will be doing a little bit at a time, as our finances permit.
The house is a contemporary, built in the mid-1970s.
First thing we will be doing is the kitchen. Next will be the master bathroom.
The kitchen is very dated (original appliances have never been replaced! not enough cabinet space, etc). The only way to expand the kitchen is to expand it into the formal dining room, thus eliminating the formal dining room. To me, this is not a big deal, but I am concerned about if we ever go to sell the house. On the one hand, I know ppl want large, nice kitchens, but which is more important? A large kitchen more important or a formal dining area?
Similar thing with the master bathroom ~ we want to get rid of the bathtub so that we can do a nice big shower. I am not a bathtub person, so again, I'd like to know how other ppl view this.
So here are my questions:
Would you buy a house that didn't have a formal dining room?
Would you buy a house that didn't have a bathtub in the master bath?
Thanks in advance for your input!
