I recently purchased a house. The kitchen is the worst room. The original owners made a closet and put the washer and dryer in it.
I relocated them back into the garage. You are unable to see any other rooms from the kitchen. I opened up one wall ( there was a small pantry closet, the refrigerator and a cabinet on this wall ) now it is a beautiful bar and I can see the living room.
All the items on that wall we're moved into the washer / dryer closet. The kitchen was painted a putrid green... I have repainted it blue. The cabinets are old and white. I want to keep the white but redo the cabinets.
Now the problem...the closeted area !!!
Do I push the door to garage back 3' to meet the back wall ? ( That is a carrying beam ) so it will still have an added on look to it. OR..do I remove the dining room wall and put the stove in the closet area with the fridge ?
Remove the kitchen windows ( replace with a half moon window ) and extend more cabinets. This will now open up two rooms allowing me to see everyone and everything while I'm cooking.
I am at a loss with this kitchen....please help !!
