Gutting, lengthening, and opening up the space improved the layout and the traffic flow from the dining room to the breakfast nook.
1. Demolished a partition wall to open up the space and create a high-functioning peninsula with a prep sink, a microwave, and equipment storage.
2. Swapped the range and fridge walls and arrayed spots for spices, cutting boards, and utensils around them.
3. Removed the peninsula that divided the cooking and breakfast areas to give the space a more open feel and better flow.
4. Annexed 43 square feet from the dining room to create more work space and a larger, more formal opening.
