You viewed the outside of my kitchen nook, well here is the Cottage-Style Open Kitchen nook you can have breakfast in...just knock on the back door! I love the bright morning sun coming through the large windows. I also love opening the windows and doors on a crisp summer morning.
Hate stock/conventional cabinets and have always wanted open kitchen shelving instead. Spare (forcing you to be selective) and reachable (would eliminate the top shelf). The design trick is to keep it dust-free as possible and away from airborne cooking grease.
