Good Questions: Open kitchen in search of functional makeover

Hello AT,

My kitchen and living room are all one room and I desperately need storage and a work surface. The cabinets are the cheapest possible and only one is of any use for daily access.

More details: I need storage, dining/seating for two and a work surface. Only one of the cabinets is useful for daily access; the other two are too high. The under-sink storage is fully occupied with cleaners, garbage and recycling. The kitchen is fully open to the living room, which is where this picture was taken from.

The entire space is 11"x15", but is not clautrophobic as there are four very large windows on the two walls opposite the two walls you see. And the views are great. I would like swivel stools or chairs in the kitchen so that I can appreciate them.

I want something warm and neutral in style, but I'd also welcome some additional color.

I need ideas!

Thanks,
MGB

Anyone?
