Things we did in the renovation:
- took three feet away from the kitchen and added it to the dining room
- closed off the entrance from the dining room and mad a full wall of cabinets and moved the refrigerator to that wall
- removed the wall from the kitchen to the old garage, in its place is a peninsula with cabinets above and below and a breakfast area, laundry room and playroom where the garage was
- removed the window behind the sink, added a large bar and a family room where the yard had been
View of the kitchen from the family room.
I love this bar and the lighting above. My children have snacks and meals here.
Sometimes I use it to put out appetizers when entertaining.
