Partial Wall. HELP!

One of my goals this year was to start updating my kitchen.  As I have been gathering things for my kitchen for a while in an attempted to update it for under 500.00.  Instead I started to update my friends kitchen...Haha.

So back on track now, I have a patial wall in my living room/dinning room/kitchen.  I am so torn weather or not I should keep it, and just work with it, or if I should tear it down and make my room more open.

Here it is.

Pardon the mess in the background.  Behind this wall is immediately my sink, to the right is my refrigerator (you can just see a little of it in this pic) then my dinning room...

ok so now you see my fridge, and my lovely hutch! (to be painted).

Right now my table is off to the side because I am working on getting a design going!

Here is my living room that is directly across from the kitchen and dinning room. If you are sitting on the sofa your view is the partial wall (first picture)

Phew!  Are you all still with me? 

Do you see my dilemma?  

What are your thoughts?



  1. It's a little hard to completely judge from the pictures. Any chance you could sketch the floor plan? But, from what I see, I am concerned that your partial wall looks like it might be a supporting wall. I would check that out first before I did anything.

    I think I would keep it since your sink is right there. It can hide the clutter. I don't know about you but I don't always wash up the dishes right away. :) You could find a cool buffet or dresser and place it on the wall under the opening and make it a nice little focal rather than just a wall with a window to the kitchen.

  2. i say frame in the window with trim a big/deep shelf for the bottom. wide enough to put a vase of fowers or a little something. i also would add some beadboard and wainscoting on the wall just to spice it up a little you could always add a little color.

    good luck!!!
