2nd Pass at Layout: Feedback Req.
I'm getting warmer, I think. I hope so, as all I've been thinking about is my kitchen, morning, noon and night!
Anyway. I've incorporated some of the great feedback I got last time.
I widened the doorway to dining area/living room to make it feel more connected to that space.
Also eliminated the planned addition of a window, since the view out to the covered carport would be less than stellar. Instead will install a solatube for much-needed natural light.
The area to the left in the hearth room function as a second living area. Chairs or a small loveseat in front of the fireplace, maybe a tv in there as well. That door is the only access to backyard/pool, so it sees a fair amount of traffic.
Pantry will be something in this vein:
Fridge bank has a dog feeding station, which I'm pretty jazzed about. The cab next to it will be switched out for drawers, I'm not sure why the KD put a shelf cab there.
