Taking possession on Monday and I have A LOT of work to do! My ideas for the kitchen.... Take out the wall between kitchen and dining room from just the outside of the beam to the door. (Picture 3) this will open the kitchen to views of golf course from across living rm. In the entry way Sheetrock the recess (top and bottom) to give extra depth for kitchen. (Picture4) Use some of the depth to push the door (kitchen to dining room) over a bit to make the space where the wall is coming down larger. (Contractor looked at wall - can come down). Put a breakfast bar in the newly opened area - 2 tier. There is very limited area for hanging cabinets. Island comes out to be replaced with a longer configuration with wine refrig and w/o range. Gas range to move to kitchen side of breakfast bar?? The opposite wall from sink (not shown and where the recess is in entryway) will hold Refrig and wall ovens. Still have microwave to place. Thinking of lower cabinets at wall facing kitchen (where solid garage door is). (Picture 2) There is 22 in from wall to window depth. Leave top for a nice piece of art since this wall will be seen from living room. Install swinging door from entry to kitchen. Thinking of cream cabinets with a darker island. Floors remain. The aqua scene in the window is a pop out. This is a second home and want a warm, clean uncluttered look. Any ideas? Comments? (Blue tiles will be replaced with wood, bannister to be a 1/2 wall and Paint, Paint, Paint!).

Be careful about moving your range too far from the sink. As a chef, that would never work for me. Wine fridge not necessary for efficiency, so can be further away. Sink, gas top and fridge layout essential for functionality. Good luck, you have lots of space and can have a wonderful kitchen!

Another thing that I am enjoying in our new remodel is slide outs and drawers. We replaced all the static shelves of the base cabinets with deep drawers or pull out shelves behind the doors. So functional. And get the biggest sink you can, I love my new double basin apron front from ikea. I'm putting our microwave in the island and using the space it took up previously for something else :-)
