Moving Kitchen to different room
We have a 1920's house that had a kitchen in the very back room (10' x 10'). We gutted the house and plan to move the kitchen to the middle of the house, which is about 12' long by 15' wide. On each 15' section, there is a large opening. Further, there is also a window on one of the walls.
We are planning to have the course of that window raised above counter height. How high should the opening be above the floor for that window .
The plan is to have each 12' wall with cabinets and a center island with an overhang on the side opposite the range. We are not sure how much space to put between the islands and the walls. The walk-way in the left of the image is the "main walk" to get from the living room to the dining room. Any ideas on how to position the island so that it is long enough for a sink, dishwasher, trash bin, and base cabinet (about 87") without creating choke points with the edges of the opening?
