help! kitchen layout impasse
I need help! My husband and I are doing a gut reno and I've been all over trying to figure out the layout. . . I want white painted cabinets and a peninsula (next to the stairs) with the farmhouse (shaw's sink) and dishwasher on the peninsula. Then where do I put the stove and frig? DH doesn't want the frig trapped inside the U, whereas I don't want it immediately when you walk in the front door. See picture. I guess my big question is: how big of a window do you need in the kitchen? The open dining room has three big windows (and views of a lake). I think we should close in the backwall window, my husband thinks it should stay. What to do?
