A large pantry cabinet to the right contains three interior shelves. “The pantry was my pride and joy in this kitchen,” Blau says. “We had to extend the wall about a foot and a half, but it helped define the space.” “All the food storage is concentrated there,” Kulpins says. “I wanted an easy way to put all of my food away in one area.”
Mix of glass-doored and closed cabinets, with cutout above sink/ workspace. Looks fine.
Open and closed cabinets next to window
At far left, half-wall hiding basement stairs.
Banquette in dining room?
Hutch for dishes at one end of the cabinet run, microwave at the other, with just uppers between.
A stack of drawers in the dining room makes the wide ledge part of the dining room's design.
The wide raised ledge, above the counter, that hides the kitchen mess from the dining room, wraps around the counter by the doorway between the rooms. Not sure I'd have space for that.
Like Janis's kitchen, the counter extends past the old wall into the other room -- something I thought would look silly, but it doesn't here.
Upper cabinets between windows, all above a common counter -- imagine the windows as interior openings, the big one to basement stairs and the narrow one to the bedroom hallway, for access and to give light to the hall.
Dining room cabinetry. I would want the opening bigger and actually open to the kitchen rather than mirrored.
These open shelves flanking the stove are probably 9" rather than 12" , which provides lots of storage without tube visual bulk that closed 12" uppers would. But by the stove open shelves would get grease-coated.
I kind of like cabinets that don't go to the ceiling, but I don't want to have to keep the tops of the cabinets clean!
Love the wooden knife magnets!!
New counter extends a few inches into the dining room -- looks okay.
Wood open shelves combined with wooden counter in one part of the cabinetry.
Open shelves flanking stove are clearly useful, but too cluttered to be attractive.
Microwave in its own counter-level niche but not built in. Probably an appliance garage opposite it. Under each, 4 large shallow drawers, and above, closed cupboards.
From far right: pantry, dishes storage, counter with uppers and lowers.
Cookbook storage flanked by dishes storage

Asymmetrical drawers, cabinets, for hutch area.
Asymmetrical wall of cabinets. Dishes are in one set of glass-doored cabinets to one side, with no parallel glass set on the other side.
Half-wall between kitchen and entry.
Convenient half-open pots storage
Cabinet next to fridge with small appliances handy.
Cabinet combos -- not symmetrical on the wall.

Many shelves close together makes best use of the space.
Nice height for a half-wall/opening.
