We had a major house fire and now we have an opportunity to make changes - but it is overwhelming to have to make all these decisions at one time!! The problem is that I have never liked our foyer. People come in the front door and see a closet. I would like to remove the closet to open up the LR except (1) we need closet space and (2) it backs up to the closet in the bedroom which we can't lose (see floor plan). I have toyed with the idea of "slicing" the foyer closet off to the same depth as the bedroom closet and then extending it closer to the door. Also, removing the sidelights from the doorway and sliding the door over as in the "Other House" picture - another house in my neighborhood. However, I am really not comfortable with how this will look. Any ideas???
