It's very narrow as you can see from the photos. There is a step-down. I'm thinking of removing the soffit above the cabinets on the left so they can be taller. There is a weird cutout to allow for the door to open. Where the basket now sits, I was thinking of making that part of a tall cabinet. The bottom cabinets have wasted space so I was going to cut them back about 4 inches. To move the laundry machines below the window, we will have to repipe gas, water etc. Do you think it's worth the extra cost? I was thinking it may look better with the machines there.Doesn't gain me extra space, just looks. The problem is that all the cabinets have different size doors above, because the line up with the bottom two. I'd like that better balanced. If I keep the machines where they are, I was thinking of at least having the counter top being the same height as the machines. Obviously changing the floor and the light as well. And the paint! I'd love some ideas/suggestions to balance this room a bit more out.
