Please critique my lay out
It will be mostly a one cook kitchen. I know the clearances on the long side of the island are a bit tight, but my KD says I'll be ok. I know there are prettier places to put a MW, but we really, really like having it on the counter. I still need to spend some time figuring out if the drawer configurations are exactly right, ie, exactly how many drawers I want in each stack.
This is a gut renovation of an existing kitchen, including taking down a wall between the current kitchen and current DR to make it one big space. A table will go in the big empty space on the left of the layout.
What else can I tell you that will help?
Tall cabs on the left are a broom closet and storage for cleaning. Elux 30" double electric oven. Bosch induction cooktop. In the corner, there will be a super susan on the bottom and the wall cab will have L shaped shelves. I'll but stepped cabinet organizers on the shelves and use that for spice storage.
To the right of the fridge (LG standard depth french door) you're seeing the side of a bookcase I'll use for cookbooks.
Left to right, you're seeing the side of a desk, a tall, shallow pantry cabinet, shallow base and wall cab, another tall shallow pantry cabinet and then the side of another bookcase that I'll use for display. If I have enough storage space, I'm thinking about changing the wall cab in the middle for open shelves and/or something shorter than 36" or maybe even eliminating it completely. I'd love it as a spot to hang some art or use open shelves for display.
This is the sink side of the island. I messed up the scan. It's actually 2 3 drawer stacks.
The desk. I keep tons of recipes in files, so I wanted a file drawer. Also, my 11 year old needs a public spot for his PC (no computer in the bedroom!) and this seems to be the best spot for it, so I needed a desk space big enough to handle a PC.
