is this basic layout okay ?
Howdy. I have a rough (rough!) layout and was hoping for some input. Nothing detailed yet. More of a general "is this worth pursuing?".
So, I want to replace some missing walls, perhaps spill some kitchen cabinetry around the corner into the dining room (onto a new wall, or maybe instead of a wall since there isn't one there now and the house manages to stand without it). The spot with no cabinets is for the kitchen table which we use. We do have a "formal" dining table in an informal dining/family room combo but it is usually used for non-eating activities unless there are guests.
Measurements are close approximations and I still have to learn this software, so sorry about that! And the kitchen is 9 feet wide, NOT 9'5".
House is currently like this:
LR looking into breakfast room--this peninsula and the peninsula off the peninsula are where once were walls and will be again, open floorplan be da**ed:
Kitchen looking over peninsulas into informal dining/family room combo and some living room on the left. Walls will go back where walls should logically be, but there is flexibility as to where exactly:
Thinking of something more like this:
Stuff to fit into kitchen: cooktop (30" okay), sink (~33"), hood, 30" wall oven, speed oven, 36" refrigerator (built in or not), dishwasher, trash pullout 18" is enough). Cabinets to 8' ceiling, probably deeper-than-standard cabs on at least one side (not drawn). There is storage for things in the room off the breakfast area so the kitchen only needs to hold things that are used frequently. The fridge will either be counter depth, built in, or a fatty recessed into the wall. It won't be permitted to stick out.
We can move any plumbing (I kind of want it all replaced anyway). I don't need the sink under a window.
This will be my second remodel of a kitchen in this subdivision and while it's a little different, there is much that is the same. The oven location, for example. Original spot in both homes (mid 1950s), and a good spot. It's in a doorway but it's fine, really.
Should I tune this layout or should I do something very different? I think we need the door into the foyer.
(Thanks--I did pick up on that subliminal message to do better drawings. I will work on that now!)
