small kitchen experts
I am working on a new plan for our small kitchen, and I was hoping your wisdom could help me with the planning. (I'm not up to asking the kitchen folks yet...call me a chicken.)
The photo quality isn't the best, because I had to use screen captures. Sorry about that.
I guess my question is....does it look functional? Do you think it's too closed off from the dining room? (I left all openings as they currently are.) Is the storage adequate? We are hoping to go low-budget, but I don't want to put in new cabinets if the flow stinks or the work space isn't functional. I want to like it, but this isn't our forever home, so I need to think of what would work for families in general, to an extent.
Here is what I have so far:
The doorway on the range wall leads to the dining room.
THe doorway on the fridge wall leads to the master bedroom (thinking of closing it off...we have another)
The large opening at the bottom of the picture is the opening to the breakfast room, which then leads to a library (in the works).
This one is looking IN the window from outside.
