Kitchen layout help
Like many, I've been lurking for bit while we were thinking about our kitchen remodel. Now we have begun and have our preliminary layout. Please give me you comments - both what works and what doesn't.
Here's a little background: This is a small galley kitchen with pocket doors at each end. One end is by the front door hallway and the other end (with the fridge) is the dining room. The placement of appliances in this design is pretty much the same as we currently have, just tweaked a bit. We are putting in a Wolf 36" dual fuel range, SZ fench door fridge, Franke Orca sink. We don't know where to put the MW. We will be getting Starmark cabinets, probably some type of cherry. Our countertop choice is leaning to Lagos Blue, with Organic white as a backsplash. No idea about the floor yet.
We have 2 small kids (4 and 6) who like to cook with me and my husband. We want a simple and functional kitchen.We want good storage and lots of counter space. We are converting the entryway hall closet (which currently has the water heater and furnca in it) to a panrty so we don't have to go to the garage for some of our ingredients when we are cooking!
So what do you all think?
