Counter between kitchen and dining room

The kitchen has not been modified in any way, but it has plenty of room. Between the dining room and the kitchen is an opening (with Venetian blinds) with a counter that is at chest height for the user where he can keep a cookbook to look at recipes or a glass with a straw.
The kitchen has sliding doors to the hall and to the living room with dining area. The entire kitchen can be closed off.

Users comments
The user enjoys cooking. The most important thing for him is that he can be in the kitchen and freely move around. The kitchen is planned so that it can be closed off; that way his wife can sit in the living room undisturbed while he is in the kitchen with assistants.

Kitchen interior without adaptations.
