Before and After

I realize this post is a bit out of order, chronologically, but I thought it would be good to show the floor plan from the old kitchen along side the plan for the new kitchen. Paul Giesen, friend, neighbor (sort of), and architectural designer extraordinaire, provided these plans.

Old Kitchen

Note that the open walking around space in the old plan (above) is pretty limited, and that the kitchen doesn't really open directly into the dining room.

The new plan (below) shows a much more open floor plan that connects directly into the dining room. The new plan also includes the island,which we hope will be a nice gathering place when cooking or entertaining.

New Kitchen

Even though we got rid of the pantry we still have as much (probably more) storage space in the new plan as we had before. We recouped some of the storage space with the units on the the south wall and with some space under the island. Plus, the cabinets hanging over the counter will be taller than the ones we had before.
