Hi - I am hoping to buy a terrace that is advertised as a 2/3 bedroom house. The 3rd bedroom is very small = 2.30m x 1.90m so I was wondering whether changing it to 2 large bedrooms would decrease the value?

Currently the only bathroom in the house is accessed through the main bedroom and due to the floorplan it is impossible to change this so I would put a small toilet downstairs and then have the main bedroom as the merged 2nd and 3rd bedroom.

Would all of this damage the value of the house as it's removing a bedroom - albeit a very small one.
