Without major alteration, better lighting can also make a space feel bigger. Highlight the different spaces with spots or can lights above the sink.

The island layout might feel a little tight and it seems you lose some storage. But, in general an island allows for more flexible use and in this case could lend a softer transition to the dining/living area. If you don't need to move the opening for the door you can save a little there too.

We decided with cutting the big island in half to be able to fit a dining table, so really only one seat at the island. I guess the best of both worlds... Hoping it gives us what we need! Door has been installed, finally access to the backyard without having to walk through office and garage :)

It really depends on your taste. There is no right or wrong answer. If you like it then go for it. There's no such thing as "too unique". Either way I'm sure it'd look nice.

Maybe the glass between the bedroom and sitting room should be operable doors, or folding Nana-wall style doors. This could give the best of both worlds. (but would increase cost a little)

I am not sure that a darker gray is bad in a bedroom i would use the Repose

SW Repose really won't be that dark and should balance the turquoise. You could go even darker as long as it's a warm gray.

What's the distance between the columns? 10'? I'd say go with centered if the width of the steps is 1/2 or more of the distance between columns.

The porch is 7 or 8 by 18 ft. Thank you all so much. This is really hard for me.
