How to meld the kitchen and dining area together?
I'm a relative newbie to GW, only finding this forum after looking for pointers on good kitchen design for our upcoming kitchen redo. We live in a 1960 track home where all the rooms are closed off from each other.
So..... we're taking down the wall between the kitchen and dining rooms to make one large area and our KD suggested we extend our kitchen cabinets into the dining area to connect the two rooms. Sounds like a good to me but I think it looks awkward the way the KD has designed it. We can't extend the cabinets all the way across the back wall of the dining area under the window because a dog door (Yes we love our dog!) is in the way. So the KD ended the cabinet run about 4' short of the side wall. It's just not balanced and looks odd to me. If we eliminate that run of cabinets the two rooms don't look connected to me. I need some help - what should I do to connect the two rooms better?
