Like the light wood and the cabinets off the floor.
Like the cabinets and the lite glass.
LIke the shelfing to the left of the sink.
Like the idea of using the small space we have the left of the refrig for cookbook storage. It would need to have lighting though.
Just liked the look. Don't like a pony wall though. Like the material used under it though.
Not sure a pot rack makes sense in the new space. It may break up the open ceiling. Maybe there could be some storage around the hood.
Nice hood and tall backsplash
