Layout Feedback (with a dated peninsula)
We will be starting a complete kitchen in the fall. We are a family of 2, soon to be 3. We love to cook from scratch, we brew our own beer and can and pickle stuff from our garden in the fall. We tend to be in the kitchen together. We also host my extended family quite a bit (well we host and my dad cooks, as he is a chef). We aren't willing to move the plumbing, windows, or doors. The wall between the kitchen and dinning room will come out. All (7) of the cabinets will be removed. It will be mostly DIY with Ikea cabinets, soapstone look laminate counters and we are unsure for flooring.
Here is our proposed layout. Each square is 3" by 3".
This is how I am thinking about how the flow will look in the kitchen.
Here are some pictures of what we currently have for perspective.
Kitchen from Dining room
Kitchen from Back Stairs (the wall behind the stove will come out)
Dinning room from current kitchen door
The dinning room is open to the living room
I would love any feedback. Anything i forgot? Anything that looks like it won't work?
