Would you like to improve the function and look of your kitchen without the expense of replacing everything? This kitchen remodel is proof that it’s possible. The homeowner was tired of everyone standing in her way while she was cooking. The obstacle was a center island which blocked the work triangle while encouraging people to stand around it. The kitchen floor area was too small to accommodate the “standers” and still be able to move around the kitchen. If chairs were put on the other side of the island, they blocked both the refrigerator and the main pathway between the house and the garage.
