Hey everyone. I am looking for some feedback on our new kitchen design. A little background:
We are a family of 5 with a 3.5 year old, 2 year old and 3 months old. I work from home and we cook and eat 90% of all meals at home.
We weren't planning on replacing the kitchen right now but due to water damage from above and having some insurance money, we decided that we might as well do it now.
The current layout looks like:
We don't like the crooked kitchen and plan on removing that wall corner and straightening out the whole thing.
I went through a lot of options when coming up with ideas until we came up with:
I have a few variations on that image where I remove the space between the fridge and oven or I add an 18" counter between them.
Our first idea was to do this:
but we didn't like how the fridge cut off the dining area.
Finally, one designer wanted the fridge like this:
But I think that TOTALLY kills the kitchen based on the flow.
A few other comments:
1. We are re-using our ovens, they are GE Profile double ovens with convection.
2. We are re-using out Fridge.
We are getting a 36" or 48" cooktop.
Not going to move any walls other than the wall creating the diagonal kitchen.
My wife doesn't like the cooktop on the island, thats why the sink is there and the cooktop is on the window.
The exact cabinet we will be using for the layout isnt finalized (IE: it not going to use all 36" cabinets for the island).
There will be 39-40" of walking space on all sides of the island.
Any other questions, let me know.
Per request, this is VERY rough, I did it in 10 minutes. The current layout:
