Layout Advice

burbmomoftwo_gwMay 25, 2014

Attempting to build a functional dream home kitchen. Attached is sketch of the floorplan as we know it.

1. Home has no formal dining room
2. Expectation is to put dining table (up to 108'" with leaves) in the Dining Area, most likely parallel to the island.
3. What size island would be appropriate? Would like seating for 3 or 4. Plan currently has it 4 x 5 1/2, with 4' off both of the countertops, but that leaves a bit of a narrow walkway at 'top' side of the kitchen. Where should it be placed?
4. Total Kitchen / Dining is 23 x 14, with 'top' of dining area opening to Hearth Room.
5. Any thoughts on appliance placement?
6. Any thoughts on where to put a microwave?

Input appreciated.

I'd like to see a large picture of your layout, but I couldn't find an email addy on you so I could have you send it through a more personal communique.

My old eyes just don't see that small print as well as it use to.

Have you considered turning the island and adding a prep sink? Maybe also move the ovens to the end of that counter top...and have the microwave in the island.

Just a few ideas :)
