Please help with kitchen floor plan!
Please help me with kitchen floor plan ideas. We want to build our retirement home. We are trying to follow aging in place guidelines--wider aisles, lower cabinets, etc--in case either of us later has mobility issues. We have the space for a larger kitchen, but keeping the balance for an effective work triangle/zones is important too. We want the sink in front of the window. The first design gives me the large work island I've always wanted, but it's 18 feet from the range top to refrigerator by the door. (I've also tried swapping those 2 appliances.) The second plan puts the rangetop on the island so I have to have a hood dropping down. But it does open up more into the DR and shortens the walking between the major appliances. Suggestions?
