The kitchen now opens up to the dining room via a wide arch; it has a long counter and small breakfast bar. The range alcove lines up with the fridge for a clean look. 1.
Annexed the butler's pantry that led to the dining room, removing one wall and creating a wide archway in the other. This made space for an extended counter and breakfast bar on one side and a 60-inch fridge on the other.2.
Replaced the windows with identical sets of triple-arched casement models that echo arches throughout the house. 3.
Added more arches. The doorway to the adjacent hall got a simple Roman curve; the alcove for the range got a cascading arch. 4.
Built in a hutch with a serving counter along the entry to the breakfast room.
