need layout help-awkward window

ashleymkingJune 5, 2010

I'm in the process of deciding which layout will work best for our 1930 tudor kitchen. The primary dilemma is the size of the kitchen (11 X 9) and the placement of the windows. One particular window that rests at 36 inches from the floor and 22 inches in from the wall is causing a headache--it leaves no room for a normal sized cabinet to be below or along side it. I haven't looked into the cost of raising the window, because the exterior of our home is brick and I imagine it will be quite costly. We've also considered just drywalling over the window, since there will still be a window over the sink and two in the adjoining dining room.

Have any of you struggled with this same issue?

I've include a link with pictures of our current kitchen and a couple of layout suggestions. Both suggestions involve drywalling over the window.

Any suggestions anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.

If you haven't already done so, I recommend you post this on the "Discussions" side of the Kitchens Forum. This is the "Gallery" where mostly finished kitchens and few picture-heavy threads are usually found. However, not much goes on on this side on a day-to-day basis, unlike the Discussions side...which can be quite lively!

Good luck!
