I really need your help relocating appliances...or not
We've been in our home for a little over two years. There's a lot of cosmetic work that needs to be done...new floors, update kitchen, and redo/update three baths. We started downstairs because that was the easiest to me. But I wanted to live in the house a while before making any decisions about the main floor. Well, it's time! I have been cooking on a 1980 coil top cook'Ncounter range for too long.(when you turn the oven on you can also cook anything sitting on the burners without turning them on!)
OK, so far I have moved the dbl pantry (that was dividing the dining rm from the kitchen) to the side wall next to the fireplace. It opened everything up, and I love it. I added this old workbench to see how I would like having an island. It's pretty handy. The dining room became the family/TV room and that is working well, functionally and visually. I've painted the cabinets, which were a bad green with an wallpaper center. They're custom, so I can't just pull one out and put something else in, as I previously thought I could do.
After reading tons of your posts on the appliance forum, I have an almost definite list of appliances. Bosch 30 " induction cooktop, either a Bosch 800 or Electrolux wave wall oven, an LG, Samsung, or Electolux CD FD refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher (although I've never had one as quiet as the frigid afire/Electrolux that's in here now. Microwave, small and off the counter (maybe in the island or pantry). I'd also really love a steam oven, but that may be out of the budget. Sink is undecided right now until I choose the countertop material. Floors will be hardwood.
Some thoughts mulling around...flip the dishwasher and sink , and keep everything else as is...put the fridge next to the wall oven with maybe a tall cabinet in between... Leave the sink where it is and put the cooktop next to it with a downdraft exhaust..
I'm adding a photo of the room, but if a plan would be more helpful, I can Attach that, too.
I have looked at the many photos of your gorgeous kitchens, so I'm hoping you'll be able to help me with mine. Thank you in advance.
