Will you please help with a small kitchen?
I haven't had much luck over at the kitchen forums, and actually a quit rude post. I am really disheartened.
I just wanted lighting help...
We are undertaking a renovation of our lovely 1150 sq foot rambler. I posted about back in October. We are so excited. The house has amazing bones. Of course, we are updating the kitchen but we are not expanding it. It is a really decent size and anything bigger would be silly in the house. It is about 110 sq feet.
I did buy another 36 inch stove. There was a 36 inch in there (against the wall) with a small oven and storage. I bake a lot, baking most of our meals, and I really need more than one oven. So I bought a 36 inch AGA legacy so I would have three oven spaces. I know that my pans will fit, I have already checked it. The microwave will go on the counter space under the large wall cabinet. The large space next to the fridge is a much needed pantry. I am using a salvaged door for added character.
The bar area is drawn wrong. There will be no raised bar. It will all be counter height for workspace. I spent two years living in the kitchen thinking about where I would put everything, and how I could make the space best for the family.
I would really like your opinions. Of course, if you all hate it, then I will reconsider. Of course, space is a premium. Ther isn't a lot one can do here and I will have about triple the space I had before we ripped out the kitchen. I originally asked for lighting help, but then was told that my kitchen would just be dark and that it was too awkward, among other things.
The kitchen will be open to the dining room that will have a wall of windows-west facing and the great room-east facing. The window in the kitchen is actually longer than drawn and faces north.
I was really excited about my new spaces.
