This will be a low budget project. Still in the thinking phase.
My kitchen and dining room are currently divided by a non load bearing wall. I'd like to update the area and repurpose the dining room to a casual living area.
The kitchen and dining room are what you see when you walk up the split foyer steps and I don't especially want to look right into the kitchen stove, but do want to keep the modern open idea.
I'm stuck on how to transition from the kitchen stove to the dining room area. I need some counter space on the right side of the stove (will be moving it to the left a bit) and I would like some storage.
A small peninsula with glass cabinets above?
A small pass thru with a column of shelves?
Cabinets on either side of the sliding door?
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
