This kitchen was a small U where the cabinets stopped next to the stove/microwave. The sink was located in a 2 tier island. We decided to add new white cabinets with crown molding and connect the sink island to the perimeter by relocating the dishwasher. The new cabinets were then extended to fill the space where a small table and chairs were located. We used two colors for the cabinetry, new granite countertops and diagonal 6x6 backsplash.
The width of the sink island was enlarged and the top tier eliminated.
