Help with kitchen design/layout
Getting close to having to make a final decision and I'm overwhelmed by the choices. Not good, considering I can't even commit to a final floorplan.
What do you think of this layout? We're basically gutting the kitchen and taking down the wall between the kitchen and family room. We're moving plumbing and gas lines so I'm open to other changes. However, I do want to keep the bay window by the exterior wall for a eat-in table. I would also prefer keeping all three openings into/out of the kitchen (which makes long cabinet runs hard).
The other complicating factor is that there is a small hall heading to the side door/laundry room along that exterior wall so don't want to block that off.
My biggest concern is that I won't have a big expanse of countertop for cooking/baking. Then again, I'll have more than what I do now, so maybe that will be enough? Also, with my one sink on the island, I wonder if it'll be annoying to have to put glasses away in a cabinet next to the fridge.
What do you guys think? Would greatly appreciate any input from the great minds of this forum! Thanks in advance.
