starting the process - opinions pls
Wanting to update a tired kitchen.......space is roughly 9.5 x 14'.
Currently like - wood stain cabinets, warmth from wood, style of current cabinets, sink at window, transitional classic styling. Will be living in for the foreseeable future, mid-range country estate.
Dislike - drop ceiling, range fan not vented outside, dishwasher placement, look into cupboards at current prep area, backsplash tile cracked, leaky faucet, pantry in adjacent laundry room
Need/want - more storage, more workspace (countertop), more open concept, new floor, new countertops, refinish cabinets, larger fridge either french door or bottom mount (current one is not fixable) and matching appliances, pantry, large island or open peninsula with seating.
Here are some sketches on scrap paper as I begin the process of deciding a kitchen layout.....not vary professional at this point, just ideas.......i'd like to take 2 or 3 of them and put them to scale to see how everything fits.
Will be removing the current kitchen table, chairs and temporary fridge...
Starting on left, down and then to right as I make more modifications.
What would you do?
