Would you buy a large house that doesn’t have a formal dining room?

We are thinking of converting our formal dining room into a walk in pantry and curious about how this would affect resale.

We have a 3200 sqft home, 4 bed 2 1/2 bath. Currently the home has a formal dining room, formal sitting room, large living/family room and an additional entertaining area as large as the living room that leads to the patio/backyard. There is a large space in the kitchen/living room (open concept) for a dining table. One of the “bedrooms” is above the garage and is the only upstairs room. This room is too small to be master and we aren’t comfortable putting one of our kids up there until they’re older. Currently we have 2 kids and are planning to have 2-4 more.

We love the space and potential this house has but think the current layout leaves a lot of space unused. The formal sitting room and dining room are virtually empty, we keep our dining table in the kitchen. I suggested to my husband that we convert the formal sitting room into a bedroom and use the dining room as a both a large walk in closet and a large walk in pantry. He’s worried it would affect resale because the home would no longer have a formal dining room. What are your thoughts?
