Open concept kitchen layout help

13 years ago


We just bought a 25 year old house with original kitchen cabinet and appliances. We would like to do some remodel, and likes the modern, open concept design.

Here's a layout of what it looks like currently, it's a U shaped kitchen with a sink in the middle and the fridge and oven/microwave on each end.

To the right is the dining room, and the left is the family room. We looked as some ways of opening up the kitchen into the family room, and perhaps putting in an island.

However, no matter how we try the layout, it always seems like we're either losing counter top space, or cabinet space, or both.

Can anyone suggest some ways of getting the open feeling without losing usable space?
