We knocked down a wall separating a den and the kitchen to make a bigger eat-in kitchen. It's still not huge but it's very functional and just perfect for us. We also added lots more lighting - recessed, under cabinet, and pendants. We had a gas line run into the kitchen for the stove. We moved the sink and removed an extra sink that we weren't using. We removed two windows (gasp!) to make way for a patio door so we could actually access the backyard (and the grill) more easily. We added a breakfast bar. Future plans include the building of a banquette in the far corner of the breakfast area.
