Which layout do you prefer (open kitchen in LR)?
We are in the middle of a dilemma.
We are living in NYC so places are not that big. We were fortunate enough to get a 1100 sqft apartment. The living room is almost half of it (500sqft) so we are considering having an open kitchen in there. We got bids so we know it is feasible. But we now have to decide between 2 possibilities:
- against a wall on your right when you enter
- in the middle of the room, a little recessed
We love both. the one on the left is great because there is a window but then the 24'' cabinets come about 1/3 in front of the window (wall cabinets would be thiner, maybe 12'')
The one on the right is my favorite because there is some room left to put a bar, desk, whatever but there is no window.
My experience with hood is that even a good one cannot really remove odors.
Any advice greatly appreciated! You get to vote now :)
