MayBe sliding doors to shallow pantry, and keep (stackable) w/d behind with access via mudroom instead of kitchen?
Find out about wallpaper, maybe in another color for our space. Like the overall color scheme. Like the idea of combo pantry + work space. Move W/D to side porch to free up more room. May be able to create fold-out or slide-out additional counter space, or a cabinet, wine cooler, trash compactor ...other into space on right (opposite door)
