Small kitchen layout help
I've found this forum a great resource so far and now maybe I can get some specific help on a new kitchen layout.
Background: new to us house. It's old (1920's) with 9' ceilings. Both husband and I like to and cook (together) and this is a long term house (so will have little ones). we entertain as well but mostly sit down. While this kitchen is small, it's bigger than my old one. Goal is to make the space efficient and not completely out of step with the Tudor feel of home (think leaded diamond glazing windows).
Challenges: 3 doorways: to hall, to outside and to dining room. 1 window (26" from wall). Window and door to outside not movable, the other two doorways can be moved.
Extras: pantry space in hallway.
I've included the "now" picture: it's awkward and little base cabinet space.
I've thought about getting rid of the wall to dining room, it's possible but then the fridge is hard to place and melding the kitchen into house is even harder (dining room has plaster walls).
Thanks for any advice!
