Consider removing some of your cabinet doors to utilize open shelving. I've done this often, especially to update #vintagekitchens.
open shelving in the kitchen. i'd love a couple of these so i can store my fiesta ware and have it be colorful and fun.
A small stove top only set above either the counter-high refrigerator. To gain more counter space you could use a 24" or even an 18" sink. Apparently the microwave is being used rather than a bake oven, although an oven could be on the opposite or adjacent wall set into storage area, or above a washer dryer combo unit.
