I have a door that opens inwards to kitchen space. Because of that, the part of the kitchen directly adjacent to the opened door has to be narrower than local standard of approximately 23.6" (there is only 21" of space available because of the door). The attached layout might illustrate the situation better.
I think that moving the door would be too expensive—the doors are passing through 13" of load bearing concrete and I would have to move electrical switches and lines which are directly next to the door as well.
Pocket door is not an option (again, because of the concrete). Sliding barn door would cover the light switches. Removing the door would not help much, since the passageway would be partly blocked by protruding kitchen elements if they were standard width.
How can I make the transition between the narrower and wider countertop more smooth, so it doesn't stick out?
