Layout help needed! Meeting with cabinet guy Wed.
So excited to be at the point where I can really dig into a layout design! Meeting with the cabinet guy on Wednesday, I would like to bring the best plan I (or more accurately, we) can come up with and see what they have drawn up, then hopefully pick the best ideas from each to include.
Here is the current layout:
It's just DH and me in the home, no plans for kids. We tend to cook 5-7 nights a week, usually one cook at a time. We don't entertain much due to space, but when we have people over it's either just 4-6 of us total or way more than one table can handle.
- more counter space, which could happen largely by moving things that currently live in the counter for lack of space (blender, knife block, rice cooker, soda stream, coffee maker and toaster all live there now)
- proper ventilation since we cook so much, currently have an OTR MW
- space for a table that seats 6, likely one that has a leaf to make it that size
- remove the soffets, which will add some storage to the uppers
This is my best attempt at including everything. The OTR MW is replaced by a hood, the MW function is part of the Advantium we hope to add. I really want to fit in a 30 inch 240V Advantium, but if necessary will consider the 240V OTR model mounted above a section of counter. This will also replace the toaster since we rarely make toast (it will be stored away just in case). Moving the fridge was necessary to free up space for seating.
I'm not sure about how shifting the sink over 6 inches will look, but that extra prep space would be heavenly! Also not sure I can put a built in oven facing that way with no wall. Anyone know?
Any comments, thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc are welcome. Thanks!
