Galley layout for a friend
So I guess I'm sort of like my dear friend's kitchen consigliera. I'm helping with all aspects of her renovation, and I'm treating it very much as though it were my own (short of writing the checks). She and her husband will spend weekends and holidays in this condo. Most weekends, she serves a dinner for 10 people, cooked from scratch.
Right now, there's only one entrance into the kitchen, the one at the bottom of the plan, but she'd like to open a door to the dining room at the top, to the left of the sliders. (We think this is possible because other people in the building have done this.)
I've made the counters 30" deep, and I'd like for the lowers, mostly drawers, to be as deep as they can be underneath -- 27"? 28"? I'm assuming this would allow for the uppers to be a little deeper than usual as well.
A few questions: I'm showing a 30" induction stove, but she'd love to have double ovens if such a thing were possible to fit. What do you think?
The table in the corner that she'd be using for eating in is tiny: 24". How much clearance does she need for 2 people to be able to sit there over breakfast?
Thanks in advance for your advice. She (and I) really appreciate it.
