Corner Storage Options and Symmetry....Need Help!!
We finally decided to go with the U-shape layout after evaluating all the great feedback we were given here! Now, we are getting stuck on corner options and could really use some help. Our goal is to maximize storage without compromising aesthetics. We do need space to store several small appliances (bread machine, grain mill, popcorn popper, juicer, waffle iron, etc.) and need ample storage for pots/pans. We have sketched out 5 different options (there are several more) for our kitchen based on corner options and we just don't know how to decide what is best. Super susans? Dead space? Symmetry? Easy Reach? Since I don't know how to post more than one picture, I will try to describe the layouts and just post one of the options here.
Option 1 (pictured): Range is centered with 35.5" drawers on each side. Corners would be blocked off (dead space).
Option 2: Same as Option one, but 12" pull out pantry next to fridge is removed and easy reach uppers are removed.
Option 3: Range is centered with 23.5" drawers on each side. Super Suzans in both corners.
Option 4: Range NOT centered. Super suzan in left corner and 23.5" drawer to left of range. 35.5" drawer to right of range then a blind corner unit.
Option 5: Range NOT centered with super suzans in both corners. Super suzan in left corner and 17" drawer to left of range. 30" drawer then another super suzan.
I can post more pictures if these descriptions are not adequate! We would really appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
