In this realtor.com article, author Audrey Brashich writes that she has always disliked Open Plan kitchens--preferring a separate space where she can hide her mess. As Audrey sees it--from reading social media and noting all the people who regret having Open Plan kitchens--she believes the tide is turning...that more people now want a separate space for cooking rather than a big, open family room with a kitchen in it. Realtor Arthur Jeppe of Newport Beach, CA insists that a house with an Open Kitchen is actually worth more than a house with a gorgeous separate kitchens. Family life and today's entertaining means people gather in the kitchen, he says. What say all of you? Is the number one question you get when showing houses whether or not the wall between the kitchen and the dining room can be knocked down?

Seems like every house I show, buyers want to knock down the wall between the kitchen and dining room.
