Plano interior designer, Kathy Prior says Yes! Maybe not dead but certainly dying. It’s time to get rid of all that unused furniture and turn that space into a functional place for your family’s needs. There are many options for using that space. Do you need more room in your kitchen? How about a library or home office? With a few simple changes you could have the space you’ve always wanted. If you have the budget to tackle a bigger project, then knock down some walls and add this area to your kitchen or family room for a grand space that is truly functional for your family.
