Several walls were removed during the renovation of this midcentury modern home to combine the kitchen and what was the sunroom. The result was a large, airy space in place of what was a small, boxy and awkwardly arranged kitchen. A large island houses the sink, creating a more logical work triangle with the refrigerator and sink. White surfaces reflect light, improving the previously dark space.
