Revised Floor Plan for 60's Ranch!
I have made revisions to my kitchen plan based on feedback from my other thread and more thinking and pondering on my part. I would love to know what you think. I used the IKEA kitchen planner to do this.

We are buying a 60's ranch and will do a gut remodel, resulting in a 1,000 sq ft open living space. The yard is an acre and backs to a sweet little creek, so we have great views along the back of the house.We are a family of 4 who frequently have a house full of kids. We live casually and comfortably, but I do love beautiful spaces! We are planning a budget white kitchen, possibly from IKEA.
We cannot move the kitchen to the left because of the opening to the garage & office. We cannot move it to the right because there is a low window just 20 inches from the corner and we can't afford to move it.
The island, which I couldn't figure out how to illustrate in the kitchen planner, will be 45x126 and seat 4 at the overhang. The walkway between the stove and island is 45. I know 48 is recommended, but I don't think I can do it and still have room on the other side for the living room.
Oh, I have put in a cleaning closet to hold the broom & other cleaning supplies. It will be in the hall space between the passageway and the kitchen (it is not shown here).
ANY thoughts or ideas are welcome!!! Thank you!!
