Thanks for all your comments. It was an old house with an addition and several renovations in its lifetime. The configuration of the house left rooms very disconnected from each other, and changes like converting the central powder room into a hallway connecting kitchen/dining went a long way towards a more cohesive, flowing home. The kitchen fireplace was long ago disconnected from its chimney, and with the added appliances and island, the space was too precious for a non-functioning fireplace. Had we known knotty pine wall paneling had such a following, we'd have kept it for AT's Classifieds!
