hi, guys .
these are the photos of our entrance.
My husband and i were debating about whether to cover up the lower stair rail from the first corner of the rail where one of the water bottles is to the right wall where the other water bottle is of the rail upto the ceiling.
so you don't see the stair case from the entry you will see one wall from the floor to the ceiling.
1. one doesn't like the fact when you open the front door you will see the bedroom upstairs, the kitchen behind the stairs and the stair rail looks very ugly.
2. the other likes the open looks and doesn't want to divide the space and just repaint the rail and polish the tread.
would you be able to give us your opinions?
and if you know which one is better sales point?

I wouldn't put a wall to the ceiling if you go with a wall seeing the wall might need to be around 6 meter high. I would try hiding the staircase with a bookshelf/shelving like in the picture. To add it could have a mirror a place to store umbrellas maybe a coat rack and so on.

As with a lot of these things, it comes down to personal choice, and if you are living in the house, I wouldn't change something simply because of what someone might think when you're selling it years in the future. Do what you feel comfortable with.
Personally, I prefer having the open plan, and being able to see who is coming into the house both from the upstairs landing, and when I'm cooking in the kitchen. Having a small entrance hall seems a bit claustrophobic to me, but if you did wall it off, then the sloping ceiling in the entrance which naturally points you up the stairs would probably have to be leveled off too, so as to not look so odd.
