Joel Plitt, Ruhf Plitt Architects
While we kept the kitchen location and the layout fairly intact, we did replace all the cabinets and added an island. We included tall pantry cabinets in the kitchen since there was no room for a separate pantry. The three tall pantry cabinets are in the direct sight line when you come in the front door, which we thought would be better to look at than base and wall cabinets with counter. The three tall pantry cabinets also provide a nice transition between the kitchen work area and the dining room.
