TKO reviews of L-Shape plan Sketchup views
If you've ever posted your own plans for review, you will understand how nervous I am, and yet so interested in the comments you may have on this plan. Thank you for looking and responding with your ideas. The TKO GWers here are so experienced, I really look forward to hearing your thoughts!
It's a one person New England kitchen ready for a gut redo. My primary goals are three:
1. to expand the number and sizes of windows in the exterior walls in order to maximize light and views,
2. to create a walk-in pantry particularly for my space-hogging canning equipment and supplies, and
3. to direct traffic flow to the two ends of the L-shaped space (keeping the prep, clean-up, cooking, and baking in the central area.
You may notice that I've planned a bar area (darker cabs) at one end that connects to the DR. I've also planned a snack and beverage area at the other end which connects to the living area. The small banquette allows for table-height snacking near the snack and beverage area. Aisles are deliberately narrower than 42 in order to restrict traffic.
Please note that I cannot expand the scope of the project into other rooms, and so the doorways must not move. The large bay window is brand new, and I plan to keep that too. After trying this plan in Sketchup for a while, I do surely hope that these images will be usable for your review. OK, deep breath, here goes:
