Moving kitchen location...thoughts???
We recently purchased a mid 1980's house rather than building new. One of the biggest considerations is the location of the kitchen. We really want a more open kitchen that has island/bar seating and lends well to entertaining. We do a lot of informal entertaining with a couple of people in the kitchen and some more formal every once in a while. Would we gain anything by swapping the kitchen with the dining room? The rooms are similar size but we could get a bar between the kitchen and breakfast room. It's very early in the process but wanted to get some thoughts on this. I've attached a copy of the original floor plan as it is today.
