I’m always in favor or getting rid of bulkheads because so often, it’s not actually serving any purpose, and allows for taller upper cabinets. In this kitchen, the bulkhead was in the cooking area and then just ended awkwardly in the eating area:
In this space, a very small portion of it actually was necessary. We decided to add more bulkhead – where the bulkhead had to stay it was concealed it with cabinetry header, and then a bulkhead was continued all the way around the eating area.
Before the reno, this kitchen had 4 entries – Exit door to backyard, and interior entries from family room, main hallway, and dining room. So this doorway into the family was closed off:
