The almost same-size kitchen gained more function after reworking the former fridge and range walls, lengthening the peninsula, and adding a prep island.
1. Extended the peninsula by 2 feet, making room for the sink and dishwasher. Moved the range to where the sink had stood.
2. Relocated the basement door and shifted the foyer opening, allowing the fridge to tuck into the range-wall cabinetry.
3. Added a prep island with a microwave and storage within easy reach of the fridge and range.
4. Annexed 2 feet from the dining room, rebuilding the shared wall as a plumbed coffee bar and eliminating the door swing.
