Trying to determine if this area is considered the kitchen. If so the return air vent must be relocated. This area is a small hall leading from the kitchen. The pantry is on the left and the utility room on the right. I am taking the pic from the kitchen sink. I am thinking it is but wanted to get some more input.
Broader shot of the room might help but it looks like what used to be referred to as a “butler’s pantry” in a more genteel time. A small alcove or room off the kitchen or dining area where dining items (table cloths, silverware, glasses, etc.) stored for easy, fast access. You know, back when people has some class.
