Kitchen layout feedback
I've been reading and lurking here for a while and trying to soak up some knowledge. I've asked for help with my entryway layout in the 'Small Home' forum and had some great feedback. So, I'm finally ready to post a few views of my proposed kitchen layout. I'd love to get some feedback from you all.
Here is the non-functional layout we currently live with:
Here is what I've come up with after about a half dozen revisions (yes, our home is flipped):
A few comments:
- The large opening at the rear is currently a sliding glass door but it may change to double french doors or I may make it large window and put a french door beside the fireplace (in place of one of the windows).
- Removing the load-bearing wall (which also contains a plumbing stack, wiring and an HVAC line) completely is problematic so I've left it in. I wasn't actually able to effectively design the rooms very well when it was removed completely anyways.
- I've just sketched the cabinets, obviously a full cabinet plan is needed but I'm really just trying to layout everything and get it all to fit at this point.
- The front room will not have a dining room table in it but I've left it in to give an idea of its size. This will be used as a quiet sitting/reading room (aka library).
