The differences aren't too dramatic, but here is the before:
SC's high chair is tucked into the corner by the table, and I enjoy eating my breakfast with her. She loves looking out the window, and we talk about the squirrels and birds. Exciting times!
From this angle, you can see the layout a bit better.The sink and dishwasher are in the kitchen island, so even when you are doing dishes you can look out the window or into the living room.
One thing I never would have bought is a double oven, but it is surprisingly handy, and we use it pretty frequently. Also, finally having a fridge with an ice maker and water dispenser has been awesome.
