Is this a weird seating area?
I posted a while ago with 2 layout options - a U with peninsula seating and an island. Both had less than ideal clearances, but were doable and I got good feedback on the U being a good option. I had even started to put a budget together and get some cabinet pricing when...
the main sewer drain broke just outside the foundation and squarely under our front stoop. We had to rip out the stoop, fix the pipe and rebuild the stoop - a 5 figure project...sigh...
But it got me thinking again! :) Our kitchen is smallish (15x11). Per realtor recommendation, we will not be taking down the wall to join it with the DR and we need to maintain some sort of eat-in space - the morning coffee/afternoon kid space. So I came up with this "Open U" I'm calling it. The space on the far right would just be counter with some stools tucked under. It's not ideal, but I think it will make the space appear much bigger and give some good prep spaces both near the stove and away from it. But is it too odd? I've also attached the U w peninsula that I thought I had decided on.
Thanks as always for your opinions!
