A typical kitchen in a 1923 bungalow lacked almost everything the homeowners wanted -- chief among them, light, space, and modern amenities.

A tiny utility room off the kitchen and a 6-x6-foot breakfast nook were too small to be useful. Removing the interior walls and reconfiguring windows and doors garnered both space and light.
