Thanks Jim. All good points made. I too am a bit undecided about making this change, as I too worry about the flow from room to room. The space isn’t that big, and I’d hate to have to walk around things to go from A to B (which I’m already experiencing since getting the dining room set and needing to go around the table to get to the french doors.

As I mentioned, I was thinking of putting wainscoting around the dining room, but without the added walls it creates an issue of how to terminate the wainscot where the dining room becomes the living room (see pic below). Any thoughts on what I might be able to do, rather than build the dividing wall? Another thought was to continue the wainscot throughout the living room, and then up the stairs to the upstairs hall. I love the look when I see houses trimmed out like this, but am not sure if that’s overkill or would just look weird. FYI we’re in a 1960s split level, while my heart always wanted a colonial or craftsman with a lot of charm, so I’m trying to find a happy middle ground!

Thanks again!
