Q: I am contemplating remodeling my kitchen and was thinking of perhaps including the formal dining room space by opening a wall between the kitchen and dining room. Have you done any research or know of any completed on the significance of doing away with formal dining rooms and its effect on resale value?

I know that a lot of newer homes are being built without formal living rooms, as these are not being used as a part of the new family/social dynamics.
