Need help evaluating our kitchen

kassikoloFebruary 22, 2013

We found a plan we love, i am not sure if the kitchen is functional and if its not how would you redo it

Here is a link that might be useful: http://www.eplans.com/house-plans/epl/hwepl08691.html?from=search

You haven't told us about you, your family, your lifestyle, etc. This information would be very useful...see the "Layout Help" topic in the "Read Me" thread for a discussion of what information we need to give you the best design help. [You may have given us the info in another thread, but this is the thread you're asking for help on...]

Without much to go on, I did come up with a fairly quick layout...note that it moves the doorway to the kitchen from the Gallery so that traffic goes straight through the kitchen w/o straying into the Prep & Cooking Zones and even the Cleanup Zone is somewhat removed from the path. I suggest extending the Gallery so the kitchen doorway is still in the Gallery. Doing this has the added advantage of a bit of additional privacy & sound mitigation for Bedroom #3 (the longer wall creates a small alcove to the doorway to that bedroom.)

[Click on the picture to get a bigger version...the so-called "improved" site no longer lets us post pics big enough to study. *sigh*]

There are other options that I'm sure others will mention!

Buehl, thank you so much for taking time to help me
-We are a family of 4 (2 small kids)
As far as the plan goes, some things that i really want to have is
-cooktop and built in oven+microwave (i really dont like ranges)
-Only one sink with dishwasher next to it
-I would like a nice prep area between sink and cooktop
-Pantry

Do you think this is doable??
