Beginning Kitchen Layout... lost!
I am waiting to hear from our cabinet man to start designing our kitchen.... in the meanwhile,
I have been pouring over the kitchen forum, clipping, note taking, searching, and more searching.
...And now I just feel kind of lost!
I feel like the more I read, the more confused I am getting about where I should place the basics - sink, prep sink, refrigerator, oven, range, dishwasher, etc.
I LOVE the zone concept, but am having difficulty deciding just where things should be placed. (particularly the wall oven). Or the refrigerator... closer to the entryway, or closer to the dining area?
I was originally opposed to a sink on the parameter, but I have "seen the light" and see the wisdom and the beauty of an additional prep sink.
We're a current family of 5, planning to be at least 6. I *think* I will be doing a range + a second, single wall oven. Not opposed to a rangetop + double ovens though.
As is, the pantry will also have a small door in the garage so I can slide bags into it from there. I am not opposed to making a 'cabinet walk-through" in the kitchen to the pantry, if you think its worth being able to enter the pantry in the middle of the kitchen and if it is worth losing cabinet real estate.
Just looking for some input to "get things rolling"!
