Easy one this. Which one? I'm leaning towards the latter because it's turning the four words into one noun. Am I right?

kitchen come living room
kitchen-come-living-room

Cambridge Dictionary has kitchen-cum-dining room. Adapt toward your own ‘kitchen-cum-living room’? Crack den or an urban squalor kind of setting? Probably with a microwave [shudder]

Ah, yes, of course. It's modifying room so that shouldn't be hyphenated. It's why I asked. I thought it was right but something kept telling me it wasn't.
