A period colonnade took the place of a wall between the kitchen and the breakfast nook. Opposite the breakfast nook, a new, wider opening to the basement stair was built, and the stairs reversed to counter their original steep configuration. The change allowed installation of a low china cabinet with interior lighting, which is visible from the entry door and provides visual continuity.
