Kitchen Renovation - Closing up a doorway to make a space more functional

This kitchen was your typical "L-shape" design BUT there was no logical place to put a refrigerator.  There were actually 2 entrances to this kitchen (1 entrance by the stove and the other on the opposite side right off of the dining room). My solution to this problem was to close off one of the entrances to the kitchen. The entrance next to the stove was really unnecessary, so that one had to go! Its fairly simple to close off an interior door way. All you need is a few 2x4's and drywall.   rhsr-ranch-kitchen-before-2   Once the doorway was closed up, it allowed more space for me to incorporate an additional base cabinet next to the stove PLUS the refrigerator and wall cabinet above it. Now this kitchen flows like it should.   rhsr-ranch-kitchen-7
