Kitchen Remodel/Mudroom Addition
Hi, I happened on this site by accident and am thrilled. I am remodeling my kitchen and adding on some mudroom space another garage and a porch. I loved the ideas you all offered to others remodeling their spaces so I thought I would see if some of you could see things that don't occur to me since I live in the space and am sort of blinded by how I use it etc. This drawing is one that I like because of how it uses the space. I would love a banquette, and am thinking of seating in the sort of octagon area or on the backside of the island. Or maybe you can see a place for it that I can't. The dining room is tooooo small for a dining room, 5 people crowds it. But it was a solid wall where I have the ? mark and I'm thinking of opening the wall up with an arch over it and maybe different cabinets. So I would like to be able to stretch a table out to sit 8-10 for family occasions. The fireplace is new to the kitchen, which is always 10 degrees colder than the rest of the house. It is an antique double-mantle that I fell in love with at an architectural salvage place. If I leave the fridg on the wall it's on, I can bump into the garage so it doesn't stick out so far, or am thinking of a 48" counter depth if not. The mudroom space is also flexible. I've been drawing this up for three years, with every wall combination, but I feel like there are things I'm overlooking. Hope you enjoy.
