There's a new K&B blog on the block called Kitchens & Baths 360, by Leslie Plummer Clagett, the editor of Woman's Day Publications Kitchens & Baths.
She is re-doing her own kitchen on the blog and has introduced us to the space with some photos and a floorplan (rough).
As soon as I saw the images I knew I had to reference them to my Problem Kitchens & How to Fix Them post below.
Leslie's kitchen has at least two of the problems mentioned in my post: Too many doors, and awkward bumps.
Her floorplan sketch just shows the kitchen, without showing the surrounding rooms, so I can't speculate on a solution now.
I'll email her and see if I can find out more.
