Ok with Asymmetry? Help with Kitchen Layout.
Hello all, I am new here and excited to find a community of people who seem to like thinking about floorplans and layouts as much as I do. IÃ¢ÂÂve seen some great advice, so I thought I would float my upcoming kitchen renovation project for your consideration.
The major question I have: how important is symmetry? The design IÃ¢ÂÂve posted is my tweak of a professional kitchen designerÃ¢ÂÂs idea. She wanted to close off the pocket door, which allowed a symmetrical U-shaped kitchen with an island. I guess it takes living in our house a while to realize how important that little door is to the flow of life. We use it all the time.
My new design pushes the stove and island closer to the sink, which would allow me to keep the door. (This also has the happy upside of allowing double wall ovens, which didnÃ¢ÂÂt fit into the full U.) But, will the asymmetry look weird? The stove and island would be lined up with each other, but not centered on the top wall.
IÃ¢ÂÂm open for other advice as well. If youÃ¢ÂÂre having trouble reading my handwriting, thatÃ¢ÂÂs a fridge on the left wall with a double oven next to it (spacer between), a cooktop on the top wall (with the asterisks representing burners) and a sink on the right wall in front of a big window.
Many thanks in advance for your thoughts!
