Why not do away with the separation of kitchen and solarium, throw in some
skylights, terra-cotta tile, a few greenhouse benches, and you can have an
herb garden right in your own kitchen?  This way you could slowly take over
the kitchen space before anyone realized what was happening.:)  I'm
extremely jealous of your solarium.:)  I would love a house that was about
1/2 solarium, 1/4 living space, and 1/4 "iris junk" space, but not
necessarily all separate.
