We didn't make huge changes to the room - but we did eliminate that weird closet at the bottom of the steps and its trap door to the basement. Now there is a nice open landing, which provides a great focal point for artwork.

But probably more dramatic than the dining room is the addition of a foyer. This was originally a porch, but once we knocked down the walls and added some built ins, it's a great addition to the house. And it gives you that open feeling from the minute you walk through the front door!
