Kitchen Layout Ideas
I have been working with two major ideas recently for our kitchen remodel. Both revolve around making room for a 36" gas range. The attached floor plan does not match the current location of the appliances but since we have a full basement moving things around is not too hard. Current stove hookup is on the wall shared with the basement stairs.
Existing lower cabinets on exterior wall are 21.5 inches deep. I am assuming they were custom made to match the adjacent doorway. Sliding the doorway over 4 inches is possible, but likely outside the scope of this project.
We are currently using a 2' by 2' butcher block on wheels. It does make the kitchen a little tight at times but we have found it to be very handy.
The wall between the kitchen and dinning room could be reduced/removed but would require bracing and is likely outside the scope of this project.
We have not given up all hope with the existing cabinets especially given their age, but we have been told that new cabinets can add much more value to the home than they cost.
The home is occasionally used as a VRBO so we need to be able to tackle this in a month or less.
