Kitchen Floor Plan: After the Renovation

Moving one doorway and converting a broom closet to a message center—serving area allow for more storage and prep space and smoother traffic flow in the same-size kitchen.

The changes:

1. Kept the sink and dishwasher where they were.

2. Added pantry cabinets and drawers for dishes and flatware within reach of the dishwasher.

3. Turned the broom closet into a message center and serving area stocked with upper cabinets and deep drawers.

4. Moved the door that opens to the garage to create a better spot for the new pro-style range, plus prep and storage space.

5. Replaced the peninsula with one that is narrower and integrated with the rest of the countertops.

6. Gave up a cabinet to provide space for a larger fridge situated closer to prep and cooking space.
