I've been in my condo now for 2 years and this closet in my livingroom has the worst placement. I've just dealt with it but it's prohibiting me from setting up my living room the way I'd like. I'd like to put my tv and speakers in that corner. So my question, is it a dumb idea to try and get rid of this closet? I have no idea if it's load bearing, I wouldn't think it is The place is already lacking in storage space but to have functional livingroom might out weigh this.
I was also thinking, I have stairs as you can see in the pics below running behind the closet. Why couldn't I use the space under the stairs for storage and get rid of this atrocity in the way? Any help with this would be great.
Thanks for reading
