Kitchen Layout- Where to start

cmc274February 23, 2014

So we've purchased a house that is in need of a new kitchen. The existing kitchen, which does not have a DW, is a single wall layout along the 10'8" wall, however the rest of the space is completely unused except for the refrigerator. Based on our budget, I do not think modifying / relocating the hall closet is an option. The rear door thats unlabeled goes to a full bath (the only bath on 1st floor).

We'd like a 36" range and 30" sink, some type of eat-at bar for a few stools and would prefer not to have the range in an island. I think its wide enough to cabinets on both walls with a center island, however we cannot for the life of use figure what to do at the big bump out. We are also looking for a relatively clean look, like the link below

We intend to work with an ID/ KD firm, however we're trying to hash out some basic concepts / layouts.

Any thoughts, opinion would be very much welcome.

Is swapping the two spaces an option? If you use the current kitchen as your dining area, you could have an L-shape in cabinets with the refrigerator just next to the closet. Maybe some sort of peninsula around the column?

Not really an option due to window size and location. I was too lazy to draw in the dining room windows, but they would all be below counter height.

This is what I came up with before I saw your message :). Much better options with the walls without doors! That hall door so close to the wall really limits your options IMO.

There are many who are expert whereas I am not. Maybe they have ideas! From Screen Captures

I couldn't make a 36" range go on a wall, but maybe the others will have ideas! From Screen Captures

I like the peninsula location and size. Even with a 30" range, I think its hard locate on a wall and provide ample prep space in reasonable proximity. The reason we wanted to keep the stove on the wall was to minimize the visual impact of the hood. I've had a downdraft exhaust before and it was pretty useless. Hope folks keep the ideas coming.

I guess you could put he sink in the peninsula. I just like mine under a window. :)
