What They Did

1. ENLARGED THE FOOTPRINT
Out came the old sink wall to make way for a 10-by-22-foot addition. The shared kitchen/dining room wall was also moved in by 4½ feet to make space for a new powder room. The net result: double the space at 390 square feet.

2. RELOCATED THE APPLIANCES
The addition forms a galley workspace. Centered on the wall, the range forms a triangle with the prep sink and fridge.

3. CREATED AN EATING AREA
The now smaller area where the old kitchen had been holds a large table and chairs.

4. REASSIGNED AUXILIARY SPACES
Since the kitchen's back door is the family's main entrance, the architect/homeowner created a mini mudroom in the vestibule. The powder room was relocated and the existing space converted to a pantry.

5. MADE DEEP SILLS FOR DISPLAY
The architect/homeowner bumped out the windows 16 inches, enlarging the narrow room visually and creating spaces to hold plants and an alcove for a window seat.
