Main level remodel- door way question


Hi all, we are in the middle of remodeling out main level, we have knocked out a wall separating the kitchen with the dining and living area. My wife and I are debating on what to do with a doorway opening that separated the kitchen with the garage entry and walk way to the front entry. It used to be a 30" door way (see photos below), we are trying to decide if we want to open up to a 48" doorway or remove the area completely to the ceiling? Any thoughts? Photos are below, along with some progress photos of the whole project.

This is the opening we are looking for advice on:

To open completely?

Or to re-frame a 48" opening?

This is what the space looked like before:

We are doing an engineered hardwood on the whole main level, still working on a kitchen island design and what we are going to do in terms of electrical/lighting.

Re: Main level remodel- door way question


Have you considered a peninsula at the end of the counter run between the kitchen and the next room where the picture is being taken from? How big is that room?

The room is not big, its our dining area. We like the idea of having seating along the closet side of the island and a seating spot on the end as well.
