Moving the stairs from into the kitchen to into the dining room changes the whole kitchen. The only way upstairs was through the kitchen. We moved the stairs to add just that extra 3' in the kitchen and made the space more functional. The bulkhead was taken out and the refrigerator was moved so it was not in the entrance to the kitchen. New floors, cabinets, appliances, countertops, tile backsplash and lighting make this new kitchen updated and a lot more fun to work in.
