Kitchen Layout help!
Hi there! I was hoping to get some help with my kitchen lay out. This is just the drawing from the architect but I want to have a good idea what i want when we go see the kitchen people.
We are a family of 6. (kids ages 0,2,5 and 18yrs old) I am a SAHM. We live in our kitchen and the kids like to help with dinner and meal prep and my oldest loves to bake.
We are fairly casual people, we like to watch TV when we eat sometimes. We have a large family and christmas dinners are often 12-25 people.
I envision that most of our meals we be at the island. I also imagine that the island will be used for crafts, coloring and helping to cook as well with the little ones. We arent tied to this shape of island but werent sure what would work best.
I would like as big of a fridge as possible, I am leaning towards a gas range as well as a wall oven/microwave combo. I would really like to get the main sink out of the island if possible so that we dont have to look over the sink when eating......
We would also like to use as few upper cabinet as possible.
My thought was to put the range in the corner (where the wall oven is shown now) the sink where the range is shown, a prep sink in the island and then do the wall oven/microwave on the wall by the door to the mud room.
WOuld love to hear any thoughts or suggestions!
