Please critique the first floor - THANKS!
So I really need some help with this floor plan.
The family room is way too big (maybe hard to read - its 27x19) - currently its driven by the upstairs bedrooms (I have two kids bedrooms over the room). But I feel the other side of the house is too condensed. The master suite is over the kitchen, pantry, office area. I think it may make sense to have the kids bedrooms collar the master bedroom so maybe we can expand the office, mudroom (is basically just a hallway now), pantry space, and shrink the now enormous family room. Just FYI the back of the house faces the water and will be mostly windows.
I'd like a big pantry where I can keep my toaster and coffee pot plugged in - but now it just might be too out of the way for use.
Also - for reference on the other side of the peninsula is the breakfast area. Next to the pantry is an office that is 12x12.
