Living room dining room
In my living room I had an archway between the living room and dinning room. I have gutted those room and made it one full living room with a little dining area. Is it possible to keep it open or do I need to put the arch way back

Based on the information you've provided no one can give you an answer.

Does the archway wall have a beam in it that is supporting the ceiling joists and possible second floor?
