Small, Awkward Kitchen Layout
After months of reading all the wonderful, helpful posts in this forum, I am calling out to all of you kitchen layout experts for some much needed help.
We do not yet live in this home, but are renovating it to be our forever home. We are a family of four with two young children. We want to open up the space by removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room, and also the wall between the kitchen and sunroom. We are after a large family, eat-in kitchen, great room sort of feel. However this will be our only dining space as well, so we need to be able to squeeze in up to 8 people at the table on rare occasions. We are seeking a very functional, open layout where we can all be together, and sometimes two people cooking/prepping/cleaning up at one time. This is a modest renovation - no gourmet appliances or high-end features. Just your basic, functional, pretty little kitchen. I have two other pictures to post of the floor plan.
This first one is the current layout as it is right now.
