Kitchen help! Tight space and want ideas before I remodel
I am trying to figure out how to update my kitchen and particularly increase my space. I have thought about breaking down half of the wall between the kitchen and dining room and creating a bar area since we do not have a kitchen table (nor room for one). The walk-way, however, is also tight between the fridge and the stove so I am looking for ideas. I have thought about moving the fridge closer to the dining room and center it between the cabinets, but then I would need to purchase new cabinets. (The cabinets are out-dated so that might be a good idea anyway). Also the counter-tops are small on the left side of the fridge (the pictures may not show how small they are but they are not very useful). I realize these updates will not be cheap but we are also on a tight budget, so the more affordable recommendations, the better.
***I tried posting pictures in order but it posted in error, when viewing click 1, 2,4, and then 3 to help you see it more in order of how it circles the room, thanks!
Thanks for your help!
